Message from Fr. Wayne:
Today’s Music:!
Last week I wrote about the importance of daily
prayer and once again this week, I would remind
you how important it is, how essential it is for each
of us to spend time each day in prayer. The first
reading today, however, asks to examine not only
how much we pray, but what we pray for. Solomon
did not pray for a long life, or for riches, or for the
downfall of his enemies; he simply prayed for
This week as we sit down to pray, let us look at the
content of our prayer. Are we praying to God with a
to do list, as if God needs us to tell him what we
need or what our friends and family need? Or are
we praying like Solomon for God to tell us, tell us
what we should say, tell us what we should do, help
us to understand the world and the people around
us, help us to see his plan, even in the events that
seem so wrong, help us to see the proper response? God knows what you need better than you
ever will. So like Solomon, pray for understanding.!
