We can sometimes find that, in an off-guard moment, we have inadvertently walked into a storm. The world around us seems to have suddenly become violently aggressive toward us. At these times, periods of prayer become longer, deeper, more intense and we ask that we can truly love others as ourselves and truly forgive others their trespasses, as the Lord has forgiven us ours. We then feel the gentle, peaceful presence of the Lord within us once more and fears are abated.
We must aim to be ever present in the spirit of the Lord. This is a supernatural life, which is a mystery, in which our prayers are answered and all our needs met and, what is more, this supernatural life is freely available to all those who love and trust in the Lord.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid."
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you."
