Thursday, Fifth Week of Lent

Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually. Psalm 105:4

There is something about prayer that when it is said from our hearts, how refreshed we feel when we are done. So it is when we seek the Lord. We are full, his strength we know, we lack nothing, and we seek nothing else but what comes from Him.

When we pray in front of the Most Blessed Sacrament, imagine how intense our prayers are, how full we become, just by being in His presence. For me I always come away strengthened, refreshed and renewed. It is in those quiet moments in His presence where we are the closest to Him. Just as the touch of a breeze lets me know he is near, a promise always kept. It is His presence above all that we seek, for the strength he gives, but mostly for the everlasting love he gives without condition.
