After watching the movie yesterday, I spent some time reading the article that was written about Mr. Rogers in Esquire magazine by the real life author, Tom Junod. I also read a recent interview with Tom Junod regarding the movie and his relationship with Fred Rogers. During the interview, the topic of prayer came up. Mr. Rogers encouraged others to pray on some level. In the discussion, both Tom Junod and the person he was speaking to struggled with the concept and the action of praying. They talked about how trying to make God do things for them seemed wrong some how. Today I read a beautiful quote from St. Mother Teresa, “Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.” It was very timely.
I Found God today understanding more about prayer.
