I am not good at praying. Most of the times, when I open my heart and my mouth, only the simple things fall out. "Help," or "I can't do this without you" or "Lord Jesus have mercy on me."
But last night I heard a song that had a poetic prayer accidentally hidden inside it. I say accidentally because it's a secular song about a girl. But like Ken Boa, I believe that every good story ultimately points back to the greatest story of all, Christ.
Here is what this musician said:
"Pull me down hard, drown me in love."
That's it, nothing fancy. Just a simple request. And that is what I will be praying today.
