As we grow together as a prayer community, we also will each grow individually as we create space within ourselves for quiet prayer. In this time of year, as we continue through the Christmas season, it can be a challenge to step away from the many demands of the world around us and focus our eyes and hearts on God.
In the words of St. Therese of Lisieux, “For me prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look towards Heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” Today, spend time in silent contemplation, looking toward heaven.
Comment below with your thoughts:
Where in your day do you seek quiet? How do you turn your heart toward Heaven in prayer? Who do you turn to as a model for forming the habit of recognizing God in your day?
or, simply answer:
Did you pray today?
