Praying

We arise and we pray.
We work and we pray.
We go to bed and pray.
A day hemmed in prayer does not unravel as a popular saying tells us.

Prayer is powerful; sacrifice and prayer is the most powerful force in human history according to St. John Paul II.

Why is it so simple and yet so hard to do? Is it because we feel the need to see results? Prayers can take years to be answered but pray we must. Perseverance and patience in prayer is an alliterative way to remember this.

So let us persevere in prayer and not be swayed by pressure to see results. To paraphrase some adverts:
Prayer: don't leave home without it.
Have you prayed today?
Got prayer?
Just do it.

Prayer for me is as necessary as breathing.


Matthew 5:16 So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
