Indwelt by Love

| | Comments (0)


Your prayer of intercession is pleasing to me
because it is an act of love.
No act of love goes unrewarded,
not in this life, nor in the next.
Love calls to Love.

Prayer is the expression of love;
it engages with Divine Love
and so, Divine Love,
--the love of my Heart for the Father
and the Father's love for me
and the flame of unifying Love that is the Holy Spirit--
descends into the soul of the one who prays.
Thus does your soul possess heaven within itself,
for heaven is the abode of Trinitarian Love.

It is my desire to see you pray always in this way.
Allow yourself to be moved by Love towards Love,
and so Love will descend to you
and take up Its dwelling within you.

Where Love is present, all things are possible,
for where Love is, there am I, together with my Father and the Holy Spirit.
You are indwelt by Love.
Believe this, and go forward in confidence and in peace.
