The One Thing

Reflections for contemplative living

We are called to have childlike faith. To achieve this, I give you one piece of advice, pray.

When you don’t know what to do, pray for guidance and direction.

When you are joyful, pray in gratitude.

When you don’t know which voice to listen to, pray.

When you are overwhelmed with grief and sadness, pray.

When you are angry, pray.

When you don’t know how to pray, just breathe and surrender to the One who created you. The One who chooses to breathe life in you today.

Let me contemplate today how prayer doesn’t change the situation but rather changes my heart and my perspective giving me a different mindset.

Thank you, God, for breathing life into me today. When I pray, then listen, I have childlike hope and I don’t worry.
