A Whisper that Echoes Throughout the Universe.

published in


Our whispered hello to God and each other is called prayer.

I am not just reciting theology when I remind you that there is neither time nor distance when we live and move and breath in the Spirit. As believers, we are all connected not only to God but to each other in the Mystical Body of Christ.  It is as if  the Lord has plugged us into an invisible circuit board where a mere thought lights up a surge of power and love that moves with the speed of light directly to the heart of God and to the soul we are praying for. Many times my parents, sister and children realized that when I mention exactly when I interceded for their needs, they had felt a burden lift.

Although it seems inconceivable to our modern, western logic, the intercession of the saints both living and dead are  vital to our spiritual health. I know that there are men and women of prayer who have interceded for me for decades. Perhaps they are contemplative monks in monasteries or invalids who constantly pray the rosary but the Father uses their prayers to enlighten, guide and heal me. I  near tears of gratitude when I think of their connection to someone they have never met in the flesh.

God is the great “I AM” who exists  yesterday, today and tomorrow. His Spirit mysteriously unites all of us, intimately present to each soul, all at the same time. Our whispered hello to God and each other is called prayer.

We are never alone. We live in the Spirit and He dwells in us.  A cloud of witnesses surrounds us  with prayerful support. They are as near to us as our next breath because they are also in the Spirit and He is in them. Let’s wecome the Word of God and the prayers of the faithful because they are like rays of Sonshine in our hearts.

  1. What a beautiful thought…we are all connected through our lives and prayer. I just recently became aware that it is most probably the prayers of family, friends, and people/relatives that I have never even met that led me to the place I am at right now. So many moments of inspiration that seem to come out of nowhere, being led on a certain path, becoming aware and drawn to a spiritual truth that we was hidden from us for so long. We will never realize how all our love, forgiveness and prayers affect eachother until we are in heaven with the Lord.


  2. Excellent!!! My thoughts ventured towards this very thing this week. Being one with God, means we are also one with each other. When we think about it, what a beautiful family. God’ family. I as well am very grateful and humbled by those who continuously pray day and night for us. What beautiful souls! Great post and God Bless, SR


  3. And a side benefit of God’s existence outside of time is that if we have forgotten to pray for someone at the time of a morning surgery, an afternoon prayer is still efficacious! 🙂
