“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 145:18




The Lord is near to all who call on Him,

to all who call on Him in truth.


– Psalm 145:18






The Lord is near those who call upon Him in truth – in faith.


The false, the skeptical, the impatient, the selfish and the proud

– these push the Lord away.


The Lord responds with kindness and salvation

to all those who invoke Him with humility and with love,

which is how we should pray.


As St John of the Cross tells us,

“there is no better way

to be granted the petitions that we hold in our hearts,

than to put all the strength of our prayer into what is most pleasing to God;

for then, He will not only grant us what we ask – our salvation;

He will also give us what He sees we need and what would be good for us,

even though we did not petition Him for it.”






Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.

Stay with me, Lord, please stay by my side.
