Loving God, Saint Theresa of Lisieux described her path to holiness as a journey of every-increasing intimacy with You through prayer. She said, “For me, prayer is a surge of the heart … a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” I ask her to intercede for me as I struggle to overcome the fears that contradict Your love for me. Whenever I go through difficulties with the feeling that You are ignoring me or that my problems will end in disaster, teach me to trust in You. Let my prayer become one of joy in the midst of trials by awakening me to Your caring and awesome power. Saint Theresa, pray for me. Amen.
