Today’s Gospel leads us to reflect on our prayer life. What we involve in our current routine; specifically, how we speak and listen to God. For starters, Jesus wants us to be sincere. Now that’s a word you don’t hear too often anymore. (Remember signing letters with “sincerely”?) It’s a word that represents the authenticity of our thoughts and means what we voice to God in prayer is real.
When we pray the Our Father, we look to God for our nourishment in more ways than one. We are beyond blessed to speaks to God asking “give us this day our daily bread” and know that He will.
What can we do to change how we speak to God this Lenten season?
May God provide and bless your families with all that you need.
