As someone who struggles finding the right words to pray, I found this writing by Father Donald Haggerty helpful.
But sometimes no words are necessary to express our desire to God. Our longing for him hides beneath words. A bedraggled, branded spirit may be the reality of the day, the humbling truth of the current hour. But it does not preclude a cry of love from the silent core of our being….
There is in a sense no option. One cannot seek God after a while except inside a greater density of interior silence in prayer where there is no help from words, no distinct utterance that would predictably cast open a door.
Ah yes — hope. I’m reminded it is not my prayers or actions that make salvation a reality. Rather waiting for Jesus, and giving to Him “at the core of my being” my tiny faith. There’s great hope in believing that God knows how to unlock (especially when we do not), all the hidden treasures we carry deep in our hearts.
