God is not relay station for prayer.
November 17, 2019
It would be so much easier for you if there were a way of your recognizing tangibly, immediately, the benefits of prayer for another. That is not the nature of human life. One must believe fully, however, that prayer for another is direct, beneficial, and has no intermediary step. When you pray to God about another, do not relay your prayer to God with a hope or trust that God will continue that prayer, reaching another. God is not a relay station for prayer. God is a facilitator for strength. Consider rather your prayers to be directed in a straight line through God to another. It is God who enables the strength of your love to reach another. God facilitates your communion with another person.
