In an effort to post more often, I am starting to realize that perfection should not be my goal! Thus, I'm going to attempt to post more, less-perfectly...
To start, I was recently thinking about prayer. I've actually been thinking about prayer a lot lately, but in particular, I had a question: why do we close our eyes when we pray?
When we close our eyes, we are filled with darkness. Prayer, however, is a time of communication with God, who is Light. Of course, there are good reasons to close our eyes during prayer, such as limiting distractions. I do, however, think this is a question worth pondering.
"The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it" (John 1:5).
