Asking the Father

Jesus eggs us on to ask God for anything in his Name. If we had just one chance to ask the Father for something in Christ’s Name, what would we ask?  I decided to approach four friends of mine with this question. These are the things they would ask God for: “to reveal, in Your wisdom, Your divine plan and purpose for my life”; “give me more of Jesus”; “eternal life”; “let me hear your voice, to know your Will.” None of them expressed any desire for worldly matters, despite many material struggles some of them have been going through. It is not surprising at all that at the depth of our hearts we long for God, and God alone. To know Him, love Him, live with Him, and walk according to His Will. Augustine was right: Our hearts are made for Him; and they are restless until they rest in Him.
