A Meditation on Faith: Hope

Wouldn’t it be nice if all we had to do is pray for miracles?

Alas, life is not that easy.

Authentic prayer can take many forms… honesty, gratitude, generosity, forgiveness, fidelity, understanding, curiosity, patience, integrity, trust, atonement, endurance, perseverance, courage, compassion, and endurance… to name but a few.

The vain (in both senses of the word) attempt to influence supernatural agents to suspend the laws of nature on my behalf or the behalf of others is not one of them.
