One thing I appreciate about the cathedral in the center of town is that the doors are always open. The fresh aroma of incense and burning flames of candals throughout the sanctuary invite me into the presence of God as I sit in the pew, fix my eyes on a statue of Jesus with his arms outstretched to me, and begin to open my heart, utter praise and present my petitions.
“I love the Lord
he hears & answers my prayers.
he bends down & listens,
I will pray as long as I have breath!”
How comforting to know that our Heavenly Father bends down and listens each time we say a prayer.
