"I enter into God's kingdom through the gates of prayer."
When I turn within during my times of contemplation and meditation, I am entering through the gates of prayer into a sanctuary where I can relax in a comfort that only God can give.
As I pass through the gates of prayer, I pause for a moment and bask in the glow of pure love and unconditional support. I feel God's loving presence so completely that I immediately give thanks.
In this moment, I know with new understanding and appreciation that God is my strength and assurance. God gives to me with unconditional love, and I give complete faith and wholehearted love in return.
In the kingdom within, God alone waits for me. Nothing is required of me but to be in the silence, for I am one with God. The love and joy I feel transcend any need for words.
"Enter his gates with thanksgiving."
- Psalm 100:4
