Living Theology

Pray always – especially so, when nothing else can happen without it! it’s an illusion that we control our lives, at least we cannot control them in  a positive way; all that is good comes from God. Pray without ceasing. That is true theology, the true God-speaking, the unending communion with God in the light of the Holy Spirit.

A lot has happened in the last two months, and it is still way too hard to carry this burden alone, so I wait on God. The work is His while the anxiety is all mine! Each day, though, brings a new blessing, large or small.

What does God want me to learn from all this? What is my immediate task? I am still trying to find out.

  1. There’s a sign in town which says
    Prayer doesn’t work
    God works
    God works when people pray.

    That’s an interesting viewpoint. It’s not the actual prayer or specific words we say which does anything, but rather God responding to the prayer.

    I’m glad to hear he’s out of the hospital and on the road to recovery. Best wishes on settling back into normalcy again.

    • I know what you mean! A friend rather officiously bustled up to us in the hospital the day we were leaving and said, “Of course you recovered! We were all praying for you!” As if somehow the prayers did the work, not the Lord who was petitioned in prayer. If we pray, God will not grant us something that we don’t need. We don’t get Aston Martins through prayer.
