Now my inability to pray at times is no longer a problem but a place to start

I have had times when my mind was blank to prayer, but my heart was calling for some way out of darkness. I was not praying but saying the same things that bothered me over and over, with out just talking to our God as my Father; a father that is a good parent and one that does not judge, but encourages me to be the best I can be. I know that each day I will rise again as Christ rose from the dead.
This should be a textbook in all Catholic schools; as most of us feel like we cannot come to God unless we are saints. Yes, He cam for sinners.

Prayer:Our Deepest Longing

Just finished the book as part of our monthly Emmaus women's prayer group, finding it a great jumpstart to deepening my prayer life! Whether one is just new to prayer or " been around the block" a bit, everyone in our group enjoyed this book, gleaning from Fr. Rolheiser's insight and wisdom what each needed. The chapter on "Listening to God's Heartbeat" rang home for me the most, bringing me to tears of profound joy to know that "when our ear is pressed to God's heart-to the breast of all that is true, good and beautiful-we hear a certain heartbeat and we remember, remember in some inchoate place, at a level beyond thought, that we were once gently kissed by God". Amen and thank you Fr. Rolheiser!
