Prayers of the Heart

Angels are such interesting beings. It seems they are different from spirits and ghosts. When you see an angel (more commonly you “feel” one), you are swept up in warmth, safety and unfathomable tender love. Mother! cries your soul, or Home!

Angels are such interesting beings. It seems they are different from spirits and ghosts. When you see an angel (more commonly you “feel” one), you are swept up in warmth, safety and unfathomable tender love. Mother! cries your soul, or Home!

Unlike humans, angels know that all things proceed from God. We humans, on the other hand, give way to doubt and even deny the existence of God when things don’t appear to be working out the way we want—or on our timing. We forget that what seems a misfortune may come with a golden crown, or that the delight we desired may carry with it a nest of thorns.

But angels know one thing that we poor humans don’t (it’s one of the laws of the universe): Whatever we want will be given us, not necessarily when we want it, but if it is good for us, we receive it when we’re not thinking about it!

In other words, you get everything you want, when you don’t care anymore!  

My friend Judith wanted a horse when she was young. Her colleague, Stuart, told her to get a vanity license plate for her car with the name of the horse she’d like. She chose the Welsh name, Ceilhe, pronounced Kay-lee, and for years she rode the horse of her dreams as her car. 

One day years later, when she owned several horses, she was riding, Aquella, her white Lusitano when she heard herself say, “Whoa, Quellie,” and remembered her dream, her car named Ceilhe (Kay-lee). God had brought her the horse with almost the same name!

As a child you wanted a dog…and 30 years later you find yourself buying a dog for your own child. You wanted a particular job…and one day, to your surprise, it pours itself on you. You broke up with your childhood sweetheart…and marry him 40 years later. 

How many examples in your life can you think of where you received the prayers of your heart after you’d totally forgotten wanting them?
