Prayer

is

a way of life

which allows you to find

stillness in the midst of the world

where you open your hands

to God’s promises

and

find hope for

yourself, your neighbor, and your world.”

Henri Nouwen

Living in these days of uncertainties and a sense of hopelessness pervades —

senseless killings where suicide bombers and terrorists made war on the innocents and civilians by planting bombs around the most crowded and unexpected areas;

mother nature wreaks havoc — global warming; earthquakes, droughts…

perplexing economic crises — staple food crises, fuel hikes, subprime and credit crunch, etc;

and political hagglings around the world…

— as a Christian, the words written in the Book of Revelation are true source of comfort. Those warnings ring true…and reassuring me good triumphs over evil, hope as we face difficult times and gives guidance when my faith is wavering.
