Faith is a gift from God
Faith is a gift from (and of) God;
nurturing it is our gift back to Him...
Perhaps we have heard this said before or in other ways:
"what you are is God's gift to you,
what you make of yourself is your gift to God..." "our desire to pray and turn to God, is in itself,
a gift from God to us..."
Since we are all made in the Image and Likeness of God...
it follows that, we would all have this vital connection to our Creator.
A connection that can grow until it reaches a complete union with the One...
or a connection that becomes fractured and broken when we ignore prayer and communication with God in an incessant way,
throughout our lives...
The only way to the Father (we know) is through the Son...
So, what are we waiting for?
Why does it take us so long?
Even when we are ignorant on how to pray...
Jesus shows us how.
Let us go to our brother and lifetime companion.
He will always be the Way, the Truth and the Life...
Let us pray to God using one of Augustine’s prayers.
“O God, You are the light of the minds that know You, the life of the souls that love You, and the strength of the wills that serve You. Help us so to know You that we may truly love You, so to love You that we may fully serve You, whom to serve is perfect freedom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
