Making helplessness a prayer

Another dip into my journal, regarding prayer:

If prayer is the acknowledgement of one’s own helplessness and the awaiting of everything from God, then prayer is the existential calling of spiritual poverty and inner emptiness of a person so that the Holy Spirit may fill him with His presence and strength.  As one’s faith develops, prayer becomes purer and more ardent.  (Fr. Tadusz Dajczer, Gift of Faith)

When you face your helplessness today, do your best to stop and make it a prayer, a turning to God in the very midst of your helplessness, and then await everything from God.
