Heart-felt Prayer: In seeking God in the gentle voice of prayer, a great mystery for me, and perhaps you too, is why He is so mindful of us, making us the centre of His universe? We have evidence of His personal interest in us from an entry that appeared in the diary of St. Faustina a Polish Nun when God visited her with the following request: “My daughter why do you not tell Me everything that concerns you, even the smallest details. Tell me about everything, and know that it will give me great joy.” She answered: “But you know about everything, Lord,” to which He replied: “Yes I do Know, but you should not excuse yourself with the fact that I know, but with child-like simplicity talk to me about everything, for my ears and heart are inclined toward you, and your words are dear to me.” In hoping that my prayer is dear to God, I now try to adopt this child-like approach in what I say and do, in the belief that prayer is simply conversation with God – even if it’s only about the silliest of things – but as necessary for our wellbeing, as the water that surrounds and sustains the fish of the sea; as we live, move, and have our being in the presence of God, which prayer acknowledges.
In the “ups and downs” of life, I have come to realize that prayer can be a place of refuge for every worry; a foundation for cheerfulness; a source of constant happiness and protection against sadness. Let us then pause for a moment, close our eyes and enter into the intimacy of our hearts, to experience in prayer a foretaste of the life to come, the honey of eternity, as the sweetness of God’s love flows into our hearts, making all things possible. Should we doubt the value of such, then perhaps our first prayer could be: “Lord I believe, but help my unbelief.” Therefore, I invite you to trust in a faith that mirrors God’s kindness and compassion in the belief that: “Our life is fragile and we should handle with prayer.” So let us explore the deep waters of faith, and if you wish to ask a question, share a problem, or need a prayer, then please do not hesitate to contact me in the confidence that all matters discussed go no further from us than to God.
