Let Prayer Become A Joy For You

Dear children! With joy, also today I call you to open your hearts and to listen to my call. Anew, I desire to draw you closer to my Immaculate Heart, where you will find refuge and peace. Open yourselves to prayer, until it becomes a joy for you. Through prayer, the Most High will give you an abundance of grace and you will become my extended hands in this restless world which longs for peace. Little children, with your lives witness faith and pray that faith may grow day by day in your hearts. I am with you. Thank you for having responded to my call. January 25, 2012, BVM, Medjugorje

Our Lady's words are both strong and tender as she beckons each one of us to come and open our hearts, to heed her call, to turn away from all that keeps us from embracing her Son.

 As the psalmist  said long ago, "Only in God is my soul at rest, in him comes my salvation".1 

In prayer we find  shelter and relief from all that the world has to offer; in prayer we experience what God has to offer......

Prayer brings peace. Peace brings joy. Joy cannot be kept to itself, joy can only be shared.

 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.~ John 15:11

1 Psalm 62

This above statement reminded me of an entry I wrote in my journal as I cried out to God one day...'this restless world which longs for peace'.

"Open yourselves to prayer, until it becomes a joy for you."

I had never focused on this sentence before, but reading your post made me really think about the meaning there. And it is a good reflection of the journey I am personally on.

God Bless you.
