My Utmost for His Highest…Oswald Chambers

August 28th, 2014 What;s the Good of prayer?

“Lord teach us to pray” Luke 11:1

The bible idea of prayer is that we may get to know God himself through prayer.  Ask and God will do.  I hope you are someone who asks and God will do.  I am and I can get a lot of things done that are out of my control and sometimes I have premonitions and pray and I don’t know where they are coming from.  But when those premonitions come I am obedient to our Father and I pray for whatever he needs me to pray for, sometimes I don’t even know what that prayer is for I just do it.  I just do as he commands me to.  I know a lot of people are jealous of that, but you guys can get that way too if you just follow the path of the Lord and listen to the Lord when he is speaking to you.  I know sometimes that can be difficult but sometimes you just need to trust and the Lord will walk with you, that the Lord does walk with you, and he will give you the insight to what your supposed to do if you have the heart to ask when you need help.  That is the beginning of learning how to tryst in your Lord.  Learning to ask for help when you’re needing it.  Trust me I know this is hard.  I have been back and forth with this several times where I don’t ask for help and then he quit asking me for help too because I no longer asked for help.  Kind of like why should I ask him for help, he doesn’t ask me for help.  After a while it seems like when you don’t ask for help you don’t get help very much either.  But that’s why you have to learn how and when to ask for help.  It doesn’t pay to trust in yourself.  Sometimes again you have to ask for help in order to receive because he doesn’t know you need help until you ask for it.  I know I said that over and over gain, but it’s the truth and I can’t say it enough!

Aug 28 – Homily – Fr Benedict: The Fellowship of Jesus in the Footsteps of St. Augustine.

We have to learn how to follow Jesus will and not our will.  Because after all we are supposed to be God’s people.  God’s body.  That’s why we some of us go to church every week, and some of us receive communion every week.  For those of you that have lost your way you can visit catholiccomehorme.org.  Hopefully people this didn’t seem to pushy, but we are supposed to be one church under God,  we can be individual but we have to be one body and one spirit in Christ.  Not to many people are realizing that these days.
