Tell them how much the Lord has done for you
I gave a talk this morning to the men’s group at our parish. The talk springs from Jesus telling the man delivered of the legion of demons—“Go home to your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”1 The talk starts with my testimony about three life-changing events that took place in my late 20s and set me on a new trajectory in life. The message? God has not abandoned us.
We need to make a serious commitment to daily mental prayer. I hope that this talk encourages you to do so wherever you are in your spiritual life. May God bless you and give you a greater desire to encounter Him in prayer, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
Books referenced during the talk:
Francis Johnson, Fatima, The Great Sign
David Torkington, The Primacy of Loving
Jacques Philippe, Time for God
Eric Welter, Effective Intercession for Our Loved Ones
