Praise you, Jesus! Praise you, father! Praise you, Spirit!
Thank you for yesterday at the apartment with Fran and Irene. Thank you for the Teen Challenge workers. Thank you for the Pentecostal prayer meeting and the fullness of tongues I received there. Let me always have the courage to use my gifts. Praise you for last night; for sending Kathi and Paul to me and for giving me the strength to just be there, to stand calm, without trembling, sure of your love. Father, I praise you and bless you all my life for the beautiful things you did last night. And thank you for the mass, the eucharist, yourself which made it all right again for everyone.
And, father, prescious thanks for this peace. Let me always be worthy of it. I’m no longer high or low. I’m just peaceful. Please don’t let me ever lose it.
“My whole being becomes a prayer.
I am alone with my father
In love with the people he gave me.
Thank you for Fran. For Virginia Kerry. For Evelyn. For Kathi. For Jake. I pray that Joe has peace, father.
Praise you again for today, father! I thank you a thousand times for all you’ve taught me. Fran says you put me in a situation where I would be tested last night; if that’s so, thank you and thank you for the strength of yours that was in me last night. How I praise you! Thank you again for tongues. Please that I may learn the proper use of the gift and please let me be your servant, as I was last night – the humblest and least worthy even to serve you.
Thank you for teaching us all this morning, especially what you taught us through Ruth. And thank you for teaching me to love you in everyone, that what I love in everyone is you. Father, I have so much to learn!
