Faithful To Prayer
It's nice to think we have it made once we reach some kind of spiritual plateau that pleases us. But it just isn't so. The old "torments, dryness, and temptations" can return. And new ones can be worse. Then − like putting one foot in front of the other to move ahead − we need to say one prayer after another. To, like Jesus, in our anguish, "pray longer."
Help me persevere in prayer, Dear Lord. Especially when You seem distant.
Jesus, I trust in You.
