Light Overwhelms Darkness


Psalm 17:6, 8

I call upon you; answer me, O God. Turn your ear to me; hear my prayer. Keep me as the apple of your eye.

There is always much to pray about. Many people are suffering with illnesses and addictions. Many people are victims of terror and are suffering from unjust situations and oppression. Many are alone and feel like they have no one to turn to. Sometimes it feels like there is nothing we can do…like we are powerless to help. Indeed…we sometimes are powerless…and it is only when we come to that place that we can turn to a Greater Power. Faith tells me that God does hear me when I call. Jesus said that when we go to our inner room and come into the presence of the Divine Presence…we are heard and answered (“When you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.” Matthew 6:6). He said that when we ask…we do receive (“Ask and it will be given to you.” Matthew 7:7). For you see…each of us is the apple of God’s eye. Do you know that? Despite the negativity in life…a great Positive is at work and will not be defeated. Cling to that Love and allow it to transform and heal you.
