When I was a young person it would never have occurred to me to think about how to end my time of prayer. A quick sign of the cross was maybe all I did.
How we finish our time of prayer actually is important. Our prayer life animates our entire life as Christian people. The Eucharist is the main and central sustenance of our lives. Our prayer life however, continually connects us to God in our day to day lives. It is for this reason that it is important how we take it into our day.
Remember it is part of our “ordinary” lives. It is not an added extra. As Christians it not exceptional. Therefore it should seamlessly be part of our day just as other commitments are a part of our day. It just happens to connect us to God who is our creator and Lord thus making it extremely important.
ACTION: End your prayer today by saying to God, “Lord now be with me as you are now throughout my day. May this time of prayer influence my actives and attitudes today.” Now go and be positive. God is with you.
