The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. - Psalm 145:18 (NRSV)
When I was younger, prayer seemed like a chore to check off my to-do list. I would schedule time to pray and say the words I thought I should. Often I would simply ask for things I wanted, and if I didn’t get them I would complain to God.
I can experience God’s love through prayer.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
