When feeling sad or just not quite myself, I struggle with my prayers. The words and intention are not as clear. I’ve been having a week like this.
I recalled a story I read some time ago about a little boy who was walking through the woods mumbling in a low voice. A woman was also walking through the woods overheard the little boy mumbling. As she came closer to him, she asked what are you saying? The little boy answered, my prayers. The woman responded, it sounds like your A,B,Cs. The little boy replied, I don’t know all the words, so I give God the letters and let Him fill out what I need.
I really needed a reminder about this story today and thought it is definitely worth sharing.
So, if you’re feeling blue, no need to fret, just recite your A,B,Cs and let go.
