I love praying the rosary and the chaplet of Divine Mercy but there are times when I cannot pray formally. Sometimes I am going through a dry period, at other times He just wants me to be in His presence (or perhaps I should remember I am in His presence since that is where we all are). I know the dry periods happen to many people and I try to just wait on the Lord. What seems to help me through these periods is this:

I place myself in the light of His Truth and I speak heart to heart with Him about the great truths of life and then I meditate on them. One truth I like to think about is " I AM WHO AM." And He is. This never fails to inspire great awe in me. It also amazes me that we can call Him "Abba". I love calling Him "Abba"; it always touches my heart that fallen human beings like us may call Him this! I place myself before Him just as I am (covered in the blood of Christ) sins and all because there is no hiding from His Truth. He is so gentle with us that even when He shows me my sins I still know His immense love for me.
Thank You Abba for sending us your son, Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.


  1. Beautiful post,Mary. I do not pray formally very often outside of Mass and Liturgy of the Hours. I need the silent heart to heart prayer. Have a blessed Christmas if I don't get back here before then!

  2. Thanks, Colleen. I need heart to heart prayer with the Lord, too. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!
