“Dear children! Be prayer and a reflection of God’s love for all those who are far from God and God’s commandments. Little children, be faithful and determined in conversion and work on yourselves so that, for you, holiness of life may be truth; and encourage each other in the good through prayer, so that your life on earth may be more pleasant. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (July 25, 2017)
What does it mean to “be prayer”? Prayer is a noun that denotes an action – to pray. Prayer is an act of communicating with God. So how can we be “an act of communicating with God.” Well, it would seem that if we pray almost continuously we might become prayer! The act of praying constantly begins to define who we are.
Certainly we would all like to be prayer. But is it possible? I found these entries in the Catechism of the Catholic Church that give us a little idea of how we can pray a lot, throughout our day.
August 25, 2015 “Dear children! Also today I am calling you to be prayer. May prayer be for you the wings for an encounter with God. The world is in a moment of trial, because it forgot and abandoned God. Therefore, you, little children, be those who seek and love God above all. I am with you and I am leading you to my Son, but you must say your ‘yes’ in the freedom of children of God. I intercede for you and I love you, little children, with an endless love. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
May we seek and love God above all. Then moment by moment we will pray!
