First, a message about the art of praying …

 

Lama Sing: Don’t just think about those who have asked for your prayer, don’t just read the names and say a silent prayer. Think of yourself as that one chosen by God to answer the prayer! Pause and make a space in your life – literally and figuratively, spiritually and actually – and, in that space, create holiness where you reclaim your oneness with God. And listen and hear God saying to you:

“I am gladdened that you are in service here my son, my daughter. I am using you. You are my pathway that honors my Word and my Law, which opens the way that I might gift one who has asked for this gift. You are the vessel, the cup, in which the Wine of Life is given.”
