The Only Necessary Thing by Henry Nouwen

Henry Nouwen believed that PRAYER is the only necessary thing of our life. It is the divine instrument of my wholeness, unity and inner peace. It enables us to live in this world without being caught in the net of violence and war. It is the moving away from the house of those who hate peace into the house of God. It is living with God, here and now.

“The more we pray, the more we desire to pray”.

May our desire for God, and therefore for prayer, grow in us, in the year ahead.
