How should we respond to what God has reveled to us in prayer, His written word, and teachings and traditions of His Church?   His Blessed Mother provides us with a beautiful example in her response to the Angle Gabriel, “let it be to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38) and her good counsel at the wedding feast in Cana, “do whatever he tells you” (John 2:6).

Do we response like she did, with a joyous, “according to your word.”  Or, is our response more like that of ancient Israel, where there “was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes”(Judges 21:25).

Remember, each time we pray the Our Father, we petition the Lord with “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).  May we do whatever He tells us, according to His word.

    This would make a good section to a children’s book teaching them what prayer is and how to pray.
