Readings: Exodus 17:8-13; Paul to Timothy 3:14 – 4:2; Luke 18:1-8
Prayer is always the lifting of the mind and thought with God. It is how we are in communion with God. But prayer is more than just formal prayers. Being in relationship with our brothers and sisters, especially those hurting and in pain, is how we give praise to our God that created us and also be a people in prayer. Whatever we do that is meant to harmonize us with God’s plan for us is prayer. In this week’s readings, we hear that even Moses’ arms needed support, just as we need others to help and support us.
