Thought for today:
The goal of prayer is to let it occupy your whole life. A rosary, the liturgy, Scripture, spontaneous praise- all of this is meant to form you inside and out. We often think of God answering prayer in a very me-centric and narrow minded way, but God’s answer can come when we least expect it. When I prayed as a child, those Scripture meditations with the rosary formed the backbone of my conversion away from habitual sin. God is not bound by our “creatureliness,” so let Him be God and work on His time. He may not come when you want, but He is always on time.
Action for today:
Pray with another person today.
Prayer for today:
Father All-powerful, You hold my life in Your sovereign hands. Remind me that, by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, You desire my wholeness in You. For in You do I live and move and have my being. Amen.
