Lent - Wednesday, March 9
Posted on March 9, 2016 by Sister Carol Perry

But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking...” - Matthew 20:22

This would be a perfect phrase to glue over our prayer corners! We so often come to prayer with a neat list of exactly what God should do to make our lives perfect. When He doesn’t do that we moan, “God didn’t hear my prayer.” Of course, He did, He just did not say “yes” to everything we wanted. With our limited vision, we do not see too far down the road. God often has other ideas.

May we pray this day for the grace to accept God’s answers to our prayer “suggestions”.
