“I Do Will It”

January 14th, 2021 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized

When I petition God for a favor, I sometimes pray, “If you wish, you can _____.” Then I hear or imagine God saying, “I do will it.” And I feel confident that my petition will be answered. Maybe it will happen exactly as requested; if not, I am still confident of an answer. Unlike the leper, I don’t hear or imagine God warning me not to disclose the favor. Usually I wouldn’t think to “publicize the whole matter” (Mark 1:45). There’s a time to proclaim answered prayer, but there’s a time just to keep it between God and me.
