Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
October 10, 2019 – Thursday
Gospel: Luke 11:5-13
“And I tell you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.”
Perseverance in prayer is what Jesus is telling us. Develop a deep faith so we can remain steadfast in prayer. When we want something, we visualize it first, then take steps on how to achieve it, then claim it as if it were ours already.
And pray, as hard as we can, and not allow discouragement to step in. We sacrifice, with grave determination and willpower. Consistently...and not allow detours to distract us. We must not be shaken..We must find joy in the pursuit of our goals..
And wait for the Lord to surprise and delight us with his gift !
