Imagine God waiting in heaven ready to listen to your prayers.
Saint Therese of Lisieux says, “Prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” Prayers can never be lost and God always answers. If we allow ourselves to sit in the quiet and peace, we will easily be aware of who God is and feel His love and goodness surrounding us. For where words end, love begins.
Talk with your family about the power of prayer and adoration. Inspire each other and share stories of your prayers being answered. How else do you know God is listening?
May you and your family be filled with the joy of God’s love in prayer. God bless you.
