The way prayer works


I pray every morning. I love that time when the house is quiet and everything is still.

sunriseThis morning whilst I was praying three amazing and totally everyday things happened:

  • I felt Jesus was completely present to me. (And yet I was just in my room and rationally could say I was completely alone.)
  • I looked up and saw the most amazing sunrise and knew it was for me. (But of course the sun rises for everyone, every morning.)
  • I thought about someone and prayed for them. Someone who doesn’t usually come to my mind and who lives in another country.

Then later I went to Mass. Its a Mass I can’t usually get to because I am normally working at that time.

The person I prayed for was there – just visiting the area. He was so happy to see me and to know I had been praying for him.

I don’t know, but it seems to me that its just the way prayer works.

The miracles are hidden in the most ordinary things.

    Remember the Archbishop of Canterbury – When I stop praying coincidences stop happening – a wonderful example!

    Lynne Thank you for sharing. How wonderful. I must open my curtains first thing. Many thanks. I saw a large rainbow over Bury when driving to the ulcer clinic. Beatrice fcJ

    Dear ,Lynne,
    I’m four days out of my retreat and hoping to keep the experience alive. Your words helped me.
