“Go Where Your Best Prayers Take You”–Frederick Buechner

I’m mulling over Buchner’s strange little quote: “Go where your best prayers take you.” I’m walking in the unusually warm and dark morning air, and I’m wondering what my “best prayers” are.

What are my best prayers? What could possibly constitute the best prayer for our lives?

All day, I’ve been thinking. And then this:

Galatians 2:20: “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

My best prayer is the one of surrender, and I go wherever He leads.
