How important is Jesus in my life? Is he like a star on my horizon, pointing the way to live out his message in daily life. If he is, I must keep connected to the source of all light.

God is like an electrical outlet. Behind every outlet is the mysterious power of electricity. It can light up a room, heat a home and much more. Nothing happens unless we get plugged in, connected to the source of power. And we need the power of God to enlighten out darkness, mend our brokenness, fill our emptiness, enhance our courage and create in us hearts of love.

The connection between all of this is prayer. The psalmist assures us:

The Lord is near to all who call upon him

There will be times when our star seems covered with dark clouds. Then we can get comfort from that great woman Catherine de Hueck Doherty who wrote:

Three quarters of your life you will feel as if you cannot pray. Of course you cannot pray as you think you want to pray!  Who do you think you are, an angel who can say to God for all eternity: glory, glory, glory?

But God sits there and doesnt mind at all. God prays for you, as you pray about the living, the suffering, the doubting and all manner of things.

God is there, and once God is there, all things are there and you become a prayer.
