Pastor’s Pen (keyboard),

Do you remember the final sentence of last week’s homily?  If you do, I’m impressed.  “Prayer, the greatest wireless connection!”  Oh yeah, now you remember, right?  What an appropriate segue into this week’s Gospel message about prayer itself.  Asking, knocking, seeking all in the presence of Almighty God shows we believe that God really does answer prayers and can help us.  Prayer can also be just acknowledging God’s presence or His greatness.  It’s like a husband or wife spontaneously telling one another, “You know, I’m glad I married you and thanks for all you do for me.”  That’s pretty romantic for spouses.  For God, it’s downright divine.
