Monthly Reflection May 2019 by George Calleja
A life of prayer… is the foundation of all that is required to come to the point of saying ‘Yes’ to follow Him. It is important for a Christian to understand this: it is only through a life of prayer that one is able to have the courage, the faith, and the trust in God for whatever calling He has for you; to come to a point in life of proclaiming that ‘Yes’. I encourage all Christians, of whatever denomination or church they belong to, to practice more fervently their life of prayer. Prayer is a source that makes us strong in our faith. It helps us in our formation and to know God in a more personal way. There are different ways and means of how one can pray. Different Christians are well accustomed with traditional prayer… ‘Spontaneous Prayers’, ‘The Our Father’, ‘The Rosary’, ‘The Word of God’, ‘The Book of Common Prayer’, and many, many more. We can pray on our own, or together with our fellow Christians. It is not my intention here to teach you what to pray and how to pray … but my intention is to encourage you to do it daily, during every moment of your life. Even doing the daily house work at home could be a form of prayer… if you are doing it out of love for your family!
It is a life of prayer that enriches our life, and that helps us to understand what God wants from us. Spending precious time with God through prayer is the best investment one can make in his life. It is prayer that equips us to be strong in our faith. It is a life of prayer that makes it possible for us to face the torments of life. It is through prayer that we grow in our spiritual life, and build a personal relationship with Jesus.
