Prayer: Purposely Practicing the Presence of Jesus!

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

Zephaniah 3:17

Recently a friend shared a post regarding Ben, an elderly factory worker, who spent a few minutes of his lunch hour knelt down and head bowed in prayer before the altar. He rose and walked away. One day the priest approached the man out of suspicion and asked him, “what are you doing here?” Then Ben said he was a factory worker and lunch was half an hour and lunchtime was his prayer time for finding strength and power. I stay only a moment because the factory is far away; as I kneel here talking to the Lord, this is what I say: 

“I just came by to tell you, Lord, how happy I have been, since we found each others friendship and you took away my sin. Don’t know much how to pray, but I think about you everyday. So, Jesus, here I am just checking in today. 

Then Ben was hospitalized for over a week without any visitors except the priest. The nursing staff could not understand why the old man was so happy and joyful. The old man with a winsome smile said to the priest, “The nursing staff is wrong, He’s been here all the while, every day at noon He comes, a dear friend of mine, you see, He sits right down and takes my hand, leans over and says to me”: 

“I just came by to tell you, Ben, how happy I have been since we found this friendship and I took away your sin. I think about you always and I love to hear you pray. So Ben, this is JESUS, just checking in today”! 

May Jesus hold you in the palm of His hand and Angels watch over you…
