I used to know someone that was always right, or at least he thought he was, and it wasn’t worth the effort to disagree. Unfortunately for this person he paid a huge price for being right. He was rarely happy or smiled, and was always angry at someone. Know anybody like that?
One of the objectives of prayer is to remind us that we aren’t always right. We live in an imperfect world, we all have shortcomings and limitations, and prayer reminds us to forgive others and ourselves. It taps into our innermost soul and teaches us humility. It puts us into conversation with God and helps us put our life into perspective.
Prayer, like music and art is the language of the heart. Pascal said, “The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know.
When we run across somebody who is always right, recognize that they are going through a form of self-inflicted torture, and suggest they pray.
