Talking to God

Do we sometimes feel like the disciples at Capernaum? Is it time? What is there for me? Praying seems dry. So, we pray out of duty, by rote. It can help if we have a second language, Te Reo, Spanish, Korean perhaps, to translate familiar prayers to the other tongue. To do so we are forced to think of the meaning of each word. Or use everyday language. Our Father ... . Good morning Papa, you live beyond our reach for the moment. You are renowned and blessed throughout the world ... Such a prayer session can be heartwarming, and rewarding.
