MorningStar Moments 

For me personally, prayer becomes more and more away to listen to the blessing…

Often you will feel that nothing happens in your prayer. You say: “I am just sitting there and getting distracted.” But if you develop the discipline of spending one half-hour A day listening to the voice of love, you will gradually discover that something is happening of which you were not even conscious. It might be only in retrospect that you discover the voice that blesses you. You thought that what happened during your time of listening was nothing more than a lot of confusion, but then you discover yourself looking forward to your quiet time and missing it when you can’t have it. The movement of God spirit is very gentle, very soft-and hidden. It does not seek attention. But that movement is also very persistent, strong and deep. It changes our hearts radically. -Henri Nouwen
