Pray. Or, more specifically, hurl yourself at God.

That’s step three in a list of five actions Jared Wilson suggests for battling doubt. I love it! I love that imagery. I’ve been thinking about prayer a lot recently. After reading Hudson Taylor’s biography I’ve been moved to get more serious with my own prayer life.

Hurling myself at God full force seems like a good way to think about it. Totally abandoned. My cares, concerns, fears, and requests cast so far into God’s care that I can’t pick them back up again. I’ve heard, “Lay your concerns at Jesus feet and don’t pick them back up again.” If I hurl not only my concerns, but myself, into his arms, I can let him carry me.

Hurl yourself at God!
