We often thank God for sending a particular person into our life. God blessed us through that person. It is easy to see God’s action in those He sends into our life in response to our prayer. It is more difficult to be the person who God sends in response to someone else’s prayer. This requires, instead of a prayer petition to God, listening to God and acting on what we hear. Listening is more difficult, it requires a peaceful heart, a heart free of distractions of the world and centered on God. Listening to God speak is difficult, God speaks softly to the heart in a soft whisper. Self must be poured out and emptied and replaced with Christ. To be a servant of God, to imitate the Son of whom He is well pleased, is to hear God and act on what He requests.
