When I saw this picture I was reminded of this awesome short story about my personal prayer life and walk with God.
Early African converts learned the importance of spending time in daily prayer. Each Christian would find a solitary place in the thicket where he could share his heart in privacy with the Heavenly Father. As time passed the pathway to their prayer place in the thicket would become worn. If a Christian neglected his prayer life others would soon notice by the fresh greenery growing on their pathway. A gentle rebuke and reminder was often used among them by tactfully saying, “Brother, there is grass growing on your path.”
No doubt, one of the most neglected privileges and powers of Christians today is prayer. When grass has grown over the paths of Christians, their lives become paltry [unimportant] and powerless; families become dysfunctional and divided; churches become insignificant and impotent; and the nation becomes profane and perverted.
Now its my turn to ask you, “Is there grass growing on your path?”
