Fruits of Prayer, pen and ink with watercolor

In this time of Lent when self-denial, repentance for wrong-doing, and self-examination become the clarifying force of humble pray-ers, I can only hope that through the mercy and grace of God, He will hear my prayers for others and that in spite of troublesome me those prayers for healing will bear fruit. Life is full of challenges to bear and overcome and I am lost without the saving grace and peace I have found in Christ. I just finished Brennan Manning’s All is Grace that I got last weekend on a women’s retreat. In his words, “My message, unchanged for more than fifty years, is this: ‘God loves you unconditionally, as you are and not as you should be, because nobody is as they should be.’ ” God can make us better than we are and I don’t know about you but I am still a work in progress!
