In moments of crisis, I automatically do pray - that God - of hope, love and strength will be present within me - that I will stay, 'awake' to what needs to be done. During the day - if I am 'awake' the fullness of gratitude for my gifts; my life, is expressed in my prayers of thankfullness. Then there is the quiet time not for my thoughts but to listen to what He has to say to me - maybe for me to remember a person in need of my prayers - there is nothing that cannot be put to God through prayer. It is my relationship with Him through prayer, action, thoughts, and listening that creates a love-centered life for me with my Creator. I was given this 'prayer' while working on banners for the Liturgical Year - it was for Easter: 'Out of the Earth we came to be forever with thee, Paraclete'.
