Honest Prayer

“I called out to God, softly. ‘Hello? I’m sorry God. I’m sorry I got so confused about You, got so fake. If you want to talk, I’m here now.’

As I lay there, talking to God, being real with Him, I began to feel a bit of serenity. It felt like I was apologizing to an old friend, and the friend as saying it was okay, that he didn’t think anything of it.

I felt a lot of peace.”*

Peace

Search your heart several times a day, and if you find something that is disturbing your peace, remember to take the proper steps to restore the calm. — Francis de Sales

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6).
