G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 06.21.12
‘Your Father knows what you need before you even ask …’
The question of how to pray, how to converse with God, is a perennial one for Christians.
In the Lord’s prayer we find our answer—or do we?
The very repetition of it, day in and day out, can blind us to what it is our Lord really wanted us to pray.
In Elijah’s time, his words ‘flared like a torch’.
Jesus’ words surely had such an effect on his first listeners too.
How do we regain this fiery inspiration?
Today, Lord, as I say the prayer you taught, help me to reflect on the meaning behind the words, so that the prayer on my lips becomes one truly of my heart.
Ecclesiasticus 48:1-14. Let the just rejoice in the Lord—Ps 96(97):1-7. Matthew 6:7-15.
