St Patrick’s Church, Cullyhanna
Sometimes prayer is easy – these are the times when we feel good about God and all around us is doing ok. At other times it may be that we feel prayer is not necessary – these can be the times when we are free from any pressure / anxiety and we do not need God ! And of course we can pray very well at a time of crises – maybe because we feel no-one else can help us and we are desperate ! It might help if we could understand prayer as getting to know someone (i.e. God) and not just see prayer as twisting God’s arm !! Prayer is good for us and it helps us come to realise the enormity of the phrase
“ Our Father !”
