Me: Howdy Prodigal!
Prodigal: I am happy with this day.
Me: Good, let me share a prayer.

I used to pray that God would do this or that. Now I pray that God will make His will known to me…When one prays he goes to a source of strength greater than his own. I wait to feel His leading, and His guidance and balance…I am quite often bewildered because my mind is only finite. I question and doubt my own judgements. Then I seek guidance, and when I am sure, I go ahead, leaving the results with Him.
I do not think it is possible to make this understandable to one who has not tried it. What I do want to make clear is that whether we get guidance or not, it’s there. It’s like tuning in on the radio. There’s music in the air, whether we tune in or not. By learning to tune in, one can understand. How is it done? By practicing the presence of God–by daily communion with Him.
He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
