A BETTER GIFT

“Sometimes it comes to our mind that we have prayed a long time.and still it seems that we do not have what we ask for. But we should not be too depressed on this account, for I am sure, accorning to our Lord’s meaning, that either we are waiting for a better occasion, or more grace, or a better gift.”
Julian of Norwich

Foundation For Life: Self-Examination, Prayer, Meditation

“We discover that we receive guidance for our lives to just about the extent that we stop making demands upon God,to give to us on order, and on our terms.

In praying, we ask simply that throughout the day, that God place in us the best understanding of His will that we be given for that day, and that we be given the grace which to carry it out.

There is a direct linkage among self-evaluation, meditation and prayer. Taken separately these practices can bring much relief and benefit. But when they are logically related and interwoven they result in an unshakable foundation in life.”
