Capsule for the Day
Generally, a healthy relationship is nourished and sustained by good and frequent communication. The more we communicate freely and openly, the more we give the parties in the relationship the opportunity to know us, to clarify their doubts and to build trust in us and, vice versa.
Religion is typically relationship with God... "I will be your God and you will be my people". Like all relationships, prayer, our communication with God is what keeps us close to, and intimate with God. The more we pray honestly, the more we come to trust Him as the Father who truly loves.
The big problem for many us is we doubt God's love for us. We want a proof that He is trustworthy. But there is no way a friend can prove himself or herself if there is no communication. Similarly, we can't clarify our doubts with God if we don't pray. Prayer is the solution!
