“Praying… then patch a few words together and don’t try to make them elaborate, this isn’t a contest but the doorway… into thanks, and a silence in which another voice may speak”
[Mary Oliver, Devotions]

“No prayer goes unanswered” the editors of Each Day a New Beginning assure us. “Of this we can be certain. On the other hand, the answer may not be what we’d hoped for. In fact, we may not recognize it as the answer because we are expecting something quite different. It takes a willingness on our part to be free of our preconceptions – free to accept whatever answers are offered.”

Although I may not understand, I ask to receive.
We are blessed each and every day with guidance, answers to that which we ask for.
