Teach us ,
O Lord, to use this transitory life
as pilgrims returning to their beloved home,
That we take what our journey requires
and not think of settling in a foreign country.
(John Wesley's prayers edited by Fredrick C Gill, Abingdon Press)

THE FATHER’S TENDER TOUCH IN PRAYER
God our Father is very close to us. The littlest prayer of ours is heard and rewarded with infinite love and tenderness, like a father stroking the neck of his precious child. “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest….for I am gentle and humble in heart” (Mt 11:28-29).
