Readings for today’s Mass
If you enter into prayer a bit on edge, let that be the first part of your prayer. Yes, i said part of your prayer. If you decide you might pray when you get rid of your anxiety, when you've settled your nerves, you might not give yourself the opportunity. Begin your prayer by quietly sitting before the Lord with all that troubles you. Remember, Jesus was a person too, he'll understand. Finding stillness of heart is a good place to enter into prayer. You can get that from Jesus.
Ask and you shall receive. Don't be afraid to ask, but do so with a spirit of gratitude that is also an expression of hope that you expect a response. Fr. Solanus Casey, who will be beatified next month in Detroit, often advised those who came to him for counsel to "thank God ahead of time." Thanksgiving says there is something for which you can be thankful.
So relax, chill out. God is waiting for you, especially in your time of need. Let your heart be still, and offer your prayer and petition with a grateful heart.
