It’s a Lonely Path – Painting by TomTC

Expose’ on Prayer

My Thoughts:

The Holy Spirit encounters me when I begin to pray.  Our moment is private, so I can be converted to a new self.  There we enter the wisdom of the desert dunes which is silence.  God dwelling in me, touching the busyness of life in my heart.  Like tending a garden to grow beautiful flowers, God helps to pull out my weeds, heals their sting and restores me to love purely with sanctifying graces.

Prayer is radical – I must let go of everything – everyone; die to self while He increases in me.  I must spend time – always – in solitude.

QUOTE from Henri Nouwen

” God breathes in us His Holy Spirit to work out prayer.”
