Prayer is one way to honest with your foundation, but also with your opposition.
It allows your circumstances to overlap with a larger story, and a larger Story to overlap with your circumstances.
"I know I am anchored, but the waves are thick today."
"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people." (Ephesians 6:18)
