What did you pray for Sunday mass today? Money, job, love, fame, world peace?
We’re living in the 21st century, God ought to at least have an email address if not WhatsApp! Even if he did and some of us have that email address, how do we know that our prayers aren’t ending up as spam in his inbox?
Let’s be honest, we all pray, some make them short and crisp while others ramble on for hours on end. But what are we actually praying for? Do our desires and wishes count as a prayer? We all want luxuries in life and God is the only one who can grant it. Well, wasn’t it God who said: “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you…” And boy! have we been asking ever since…
We all believe, there is God behind all those clouds in the blue sky, hopefully listening to us and make things better for us. But wait! I’ve been over the clouds, isn’t it above the clouds that airplanes fly? I recently did only in November last year, but I didn’t get a glimpse of God anywhere.. is he playing hide and seek with me? Oh, wait! It was a late night flight… I couldn’t even see the clouds clear.
We pour our hearts to HIM after which we feel lighter and feel better. That is the magic of praying to HIM.
We celebrated Holy Communion at our church today with young boys & girls would receive Jesus for the first time in their hearts.. what a wonderful day for them. We pray they keep the fire of Jesus burning in their hearts forever.
