The Tone of Your Prayers

In Jose Saramago’s, The Gospel According to Christ, he lists the apostles and how they died. He does not portray a very pretty picture, yet none shirked from their call. Jesus never promised his followers relief from temporal evils. The early followers of Christ went to the lions and to terrible deaths, yet he kept them “unspotted from the world.” Their duty exposed them to insult, calumny, and wrong treatment, yet they received it all as mercy. How many of us could endure such treatment with faithfulness? Is that the tone of your prayers?

 

The highest pinnacle of the spiritual life in not happy joy in unbroken sunshine, but absolute trust in the love of God. – A.W. Thorold.
