Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Brothers of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Prayer man Guatamala
(Joseph Molieri/Bread for the World)

In prayer we recognize the insufficiency of our own efforts and our deep need for God. We need God’s help even to be able to believe in God’s power and to hope in God’s strength.

        -Br. David Vryhof, Society of Saint John the Evangelist

When it’s hard to pray, try placing yourself before the Lord, just as you are – with open and empty hands, and simply offering your life to God, and then longing and waiting to be filled, perhaps gently repeating “Come, Holy Spirit … Come, Holy Spirit … Breathe on me breath of God.”

Cuando es difícil orar, intente ponerse frente al Señor, tal como es - con las manos abiertas y vacías, y simplemente ofresca su vida a Dios, y luego anhele y espere ser llenado, tal vez repitiendo suavemente "Ven, Espíritu Santo ... Ven, Espíritu Santo ... Respira en mí el aliento de Dios ".

        -Br. Geoffrey Tristram, Society of Saint John the Evangelist
