Homily for July 28

Homily for July 28

In his homily, Fr. Paul talked about prayer. Any moment our mind and heart turn to God, we are praying. When we pray, we should remember the acronym “A.S.K.” – Ask, Seek and Knock. For most of us, our biggest prayers begin with some great ASK or need of the heart. Asking is humbling and trusting. We place our burden or worry with God, which in a very real way frees us. We trust that God hears our need and responds in the way He knows is best. We are encouraged to SEEK God in prayer. In a world that seems always focused on serving self-interest, a seeker looks beyond to search out the better way and higher calling. We are patient with perseverance and faith in possibilities as we seek to save those in need. We are told to KNOCK and the door will be open. Praying is “knocking at the heart of God” with the unwavering faith that God will respond. The door is opened and we are at peace, confident that we are not alone. Ask you go about your week, think about how you pray and how you “A.S.K.” As we pray this week to be renewed in God’s Spirit, may we receive, find, and have doors opened to us that transform our living with joy.
