Yesterday I mentioned we were in Boise, Idaho visiting parish and Cursillo friends Gary and Carol Ritchens. Somehow this part of my message got edited out! So I mention it again to thank them for their hospitality!
We need to be careful when call out Lord, Lord without understanding totally what we are asking for. When I was in high school I prayed very earnestly to win a speech contest because I wanted very much the prize that came with winning. I prayed like crazy but didn’t win even though everyone said I had the best speech. Years later I found out that the girl who won really needed to win and it changed her life. God answered my prayer but it wasn’t the answer I expected.
Let us pray today for those young people in our lives who we worry the most about. I worry about all those young people on TV protesting. Every day is a new day for them to come to the Lord and deepen their faith. It happened to me and it can happen to them. God never gives up on his people and neither should we. When we are sure they will never find God in their lives, pray even more! Remember all things are possible with God!
