Lord, Hear Our Prayer


The internet is a formidable force for bringing the comfort and consolation and hope of the Lord to all of us. It can be an incredibily powerful medium for community. There is an unfathomable resource for prayer here. We have on the 'net the privilege of praying for people and of being witness to the miracles brought forth when fervent, faith-filled people pray for one another.

Let's be that community of hope and faith for one another.

How about this idea? What if I pop in here every weekend, share Sunday's gospel and talk a wee bit about how we can live it and pray it in our homes? And then you tell me how we can pray for you that week? Deal?

{And please, do return and let us know how prayer is bearing fruit.} 


JN 16:12-15

Jesus said to his disciples:
"I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
he will guide you to all truth.
He will not speak on his own,
but he will speak what he hears,
and will declare to you the things that are coming.
He will glorify me,
because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
Everything that the Father has is mine;
for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
and declare it to you."


"Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and start with the person nearest you." ~ Mother Teresa


In the crazy busy of my days, I beg the Holy Spirit to make me aware of the person He intends for me to help. Moment by moment, show me. Make it obvious. Propel me forward to be your hands and feet.


It is the craziness that is the end of May. In a recent impromptu poll of mothers gathered at a sporting event, it was decided that May is far more stressful than December. So, I'm going with that scientific research. It's crazy right now.

Go outside alone today. Whether it's unseasonably cold or as hot as July. Go outside. Breathe in what He offers. Close your eyes. Face the sun. Roll your shoulders back and down. Make yourself stay there.

Be still.

And know that He is God.
