Learning to Pray

Look at the set of senseless reasons the enemy gives you for abandoning your prayer: “I have no time” (when you are constantly wasting it!), “This is not for is me”, “My heart dry …”, and so on. Prayer is not a question of what you feel, but of love. And you love when you try hard to say something to the Lord, even though you might not actually say anything.
(St Josemaría Escrivá, 1902 – 1975)


Prayers for Peace

When the Spirit from on high is poured out on us, then will the desert become an orchard and the orchard be as a forest. Right will dwell in the desert and justice abide in the orchard. Justice will bring about peace; right will produce calm and security. (Isaiah 32:15)
