Lord, hear our prayer…

by M. J. Joachim 

They are those moments that define your life, seemingly innocent events that knock you to your core, making it impossible to ignore how truly sensitive you really are…loving much will do that to you every time. 

People are hurting. Most face their fears every day, while dismissing the pain around them. As a species, we’ve become well adept at muddling through, denying it (whatever it may be) to keep on going, until one day, we simply can’t escape reality anymore. 

We end up screaming, but we can’t hear our own voices. The noise is deafening to those around us. They see it, not knowing what to do – each man must walk his own path. Each path is a winding road with boulders, unknowns and a destination.

Recently, the unknowns for two very special people in my life have revealed themselves. Perhaps it is a glimpse of what’s to come, or maybe it’s merely a trial with limited impact. Regardless, I must pray. I am not alone, however, and I ask that you join your prayers to mine, God’s will be done with peace, comfort and hope in whatever is to come.

Thankfully, their screams beckoned action from the outside world, God’s comfort showing them, they are not and never will be alone. For now, there is great uncertainty. For now, we wait, pray and trust that all is as it should be and everything will be okay – the power of prayer in earnest.

Thank you for visiting Being Catholic.
