I had let my e-mails get all backed up, so I sat down at the computer today determined to plow through them. I have signed up on a novena website that sends the prayers each of the nine days for certain novenas. There were several days still sitting in my inbox. The purpose of a novena is to pray each day for the nine days. Usually, if I were to get behind like this, I would just forget about it, delete the emails, and move on. But then I remembered hearing a speaker say that he and a friend used to do “power novenas” as they said nine of the prayers in one day. I also remembered the scripture from 2Peter 3:8, ” But do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day.” So, I started going through the email list and as I came to the novena prayers, I would thoughtfully pray. As I did, I felt tension release and was calmed. There was still value in these prayers. I was glad I didn’t dismiss them.
I Found God today in prayer.
