On Seeking God’s Help…

A prayer of participating in God’s redemptive work…He’s not a puppet master that pulls strings.  He has created us to be coworkers, co-creators, co-participants.  That means we do His work WITH him.

“If I am actually to do it, I must ask for your help
and mercy, ask you to fill with wind the sails
I have hoisted for you and to carry me
forward on my course—to breath, that is,
your Spirit into my faith . . . and to enable me
to continue . . .”
(Hilary of Poitiers, 4th c.)
