We can spend a lot of time measuring our prayer and judging our progress, not realising the only measuring rod of prayer is love and our willingness to share that love with others. Often when our prayer seems poorest in our own eyes, it may be the most precious in the eyes of God. In prayer the heart is more important than the lips, the attitude of mind speaks louder than the words we use.

Prayer then, is more than words, it is sharing, sharing your life with God. You discover his love for you and then you respond. In prayer we show our appreciation of the importance of saying “Yes” to God – even on the rocky miles of the journey of life.

The sincerity of our prayer is tested when we can turn to Christ in the midst of turmoil and say ‘Jesus, take me as I am, I can come no other way.’ Becoming a Christian is a lifelong journey, but it helps to believe that Jesus keeps us company each step of the way.

Our lives are different from the day we discover prayer, not as a last resort, but as a first resort.


Prayer is all about our attitude

No two people walk more that half way on the same road to God.

Prayer for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Almighty and everlasting God,

You have taken up body and soul

into the heavenly glory the Immaculate Virgin Mary,

Mother of your Son: Grant, we beseech You,

that, ever intent upon heavenly things,

we may be worthy to be partakers of her glory.

Through Jesus Christ your Son, our Lord,

who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,

One God, forever and ever.
