Reflection For The 17th Sunday Of Ordinary Time – July 24, 2022

By Sr Joan Polak, ND


I imagine we all pray sometime.  What is your way of prayer? Is it asking for something, thanking for something, bargaining with God, or is it just talking to God?

Again, I ask: What is your way of prayer? Persistent begging? Bargaining with God? Thanksgiving for favors? Or is it the way given us in the “Our Father”? Praising God: “hallowed be Thy Name” “thy kingdom come”, etc.

According to Mother Teresa: “Prayer is oneness with God.” Whatever is each one’s way of prayer, does it bring one to oneness with God?
