During this time of the virus so many are suffering
in so many different ways. 
Lord, I am tempted to wonder if you are really
listening to my pleas and prayers. 
Then I realize that you are so firmly present
in my life that you always offer me
your joy and peace if I am listening.
Yes it is tough to wait and wonder.
Yes it is tough to persevere.
Lord open my heart to hear your loving response
to my pleas that I may continue to abide in your saving peace.

— By a Columban Missionary
