“Prayer is our humble answer to the inconceivable surprise of living”
[Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel]
Life is not always how we think we would have written the story is it? The reality of any day can have such magnitude that we see clearly how much we need that is beyond our capabilities.
“The truth is that we must pray for the strength to do what we are meant to do” Joan Chittister writes in Breath of the Soul. “We must pray for the courage to meet the challenges of life. We must pray for the endurance it will take to go on even when nothing changes. We must pray that the spirit of God is with us as we do what must be done whether we succeed in the process or not.”
Every thought is a prayer, released to the Universe, heard and answered.
We are blessed every day of our life, never alone. The door is always open.
