Sunday Reflection

The Mystery of prayer

We are encouraged always to pray with hope and persistence, believing that we always get something. In the asking is the receiving and we never leave prayer worse off than when we began.
Time given to prayer transforms us. St Ignatius speaks of the effect of prayer – an increase in faith, hope and love. We may not get what we specifically ask for but we always come away from prayer the poorer. Knock and the door will be opened …. In just the act of knocking something within us is opened. In asking we open ourselves to the gift of the love of God. When we learn to accept that gift, others will follow.
So we pray and we trust in God to answer our prayer as he can. This is one of the greatest faiths of all.
