The day was long,
The burden I had borne
Seemed heavier than I could longer bear
And then it lifted-- but I did not know
Some one had knelt in prayer;
Had taken me to God that very hour,
And asked the easing of the load, and He,
In infinite compassion, had stooped down
And taken it from me.
We cannot tell how often as we pray
For some bewildered one,
Hurt and distressed,
The answer comes,
But many times those hearts Find sudden peace and rest.
Some one had prayed, and Faith, a reaching hand,
Took hold of God, and brought Him down that day!
So many, many hearts have need of prayer...
Oh, let us pray!
--by M. Kolbe, OFM Conv, d. 1941 Auschwitz


I appreciated the post, but I had a question about the first paragraph. Why everything is always about religion? Spirituality is not religion


Why does it seem like churches advertise their services just like any other business?
