#blogelul Day 3: Intentions

Sorry for the late post. Drove home with my family from vacation today, and, well, while my intention was to leave early and rush, we took our time this morning, got home in time for dinner, at which point I rushed out again for Theology on Tap.

So, since I'm behind the 8-ball, allow me to present this meditation on intention, and prayer, by Abraham Joshua Heschel.

"Prayer is a ladder on which our thoughts mount to God. Prayer takes our mind out of the narrowness of self-interest. Prayer clarifies our hopes and our intentions. Prayer, like a gulf stream, imparts warmth to all that is cold. Prayer is a dialogue with God. Prayer is an answer to God. Prayer is an invitation to God to intervene in our lives. Prayer is our desire to let God's will prevail in our affairs. Prayer is opening our soul to God. Prayer is our intention to make God the master of our soul. Prayer is to sense God's presence. Prayer is a gift to God. Amen."
