Thoughts on Prayer and Adoration

To sit, even for a single moment, in the Presence of God during adoration or in the tabernacle, is the source of amazing graces for our souls. Even the angels cannot measure the graces poured into our hearts and souls for they are too many to count. In these times when our world has gone crazy and our hearts are troubled, we need to humble ourselves in the Presence of God and say,

“My Lord and My God!”

In these moments of quiet and stillness, we need only look at the monstrance for reassuring love. He, the God of all Creation, sits quietly, in the stillness, waiting for us. He seeks our love, our humility, and our presence, as any lover seeks His own. He waits, quietly. He is still. He is God. We only need to wait in humility remembering His Command,

“Be still and know that I AM God.” Psalm 46:10

“My Lord and My God!”

In the quiet of adoration, God waits for us. Our prayers are not needed by God, but we need God. It is not God who changes, it is we who change.

Teresa of Avila reminds us:

“Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.”

“My Lord and My God!”
