This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“Apart from me you can do anything” (John 15:5).
Reflection: Prayer is not just asking God to do something. Prayer is union with God. Prayer means we open ourselves so wide to God that He comes in and does something through us! Prayer and action are not two separate options, but rather two aspects of union with God. When we come away from prayer we should not feel rested but restless. We should not feel that we’ve done our duty, but that we’ve been given our duty.
Prayer: Lord, you are a consuming fire, the source of all activity. Keep me rooted in prayer and strong in action. Amen.
