This is the final message in the School of Prayer series. What is required to increase receptivity and be more responsive to God? Many thanks to Fr. Scott Traynor whose little book "the Parish as a School of Prayer" for the inspiration for this series.
The forth and final essential habit in the school of prayer is respond. Like the ancient Hebrews Joshua asks the people who they will serve, how will they respond to all that God has done for them. What will your response be?
Relating the movements of your heart (which you must Acknowledge) positions you to Receive all that God has to offer. These are the many blessing that we experience through the course of a day. Most importantly, we place ourselves in a position to receive the greatest gift he has to offer: His very self in the Holy Eucharist.
