Lord, this time of prayer should be everything for me: the moment that I long for, the food that sustains me, the comfort that strengthens me. I know that you are at work in me even when I don’t feel you and don’t even seem able to perceive your presence. I want to pray fervently and from the heart, not just with my mind.
Lord, help me to touch you in this moment of prayer. Help me to touch you in the Eucharist so that your presence will transform me.
