Thoughts on Prayer
- Category: Prayer
God is love, justice, mercy, faith, hope and truth.Prayer indeed changes things—it changes us.Prayer is the devotional silence of seekers who open themselves to hear God speak.
In the devotional classic, The Imitation of Christ, St. Thomas a Kempis wrote, “There was once a conflicted man who knelt at the altar and prayed, 'If only I could know, I could persevere.' And presently he heard in his heart the divine answer: ‘And if you knew, what would you do? Do that now, and you will rest secure.’” We come to know God by trusting fully that God is with us, God is for us, and God is in us.
