17th Sunday in Ordinary Time

July 26, 2010

THE PURPOSE OF PRAYER

There is a basic question in today’s readings:  “What is the purpose of prayer?”

Søren Kierkegaard wrote, “Prayer does not change God, but it changes he or she who prays.”

No doubt, the prayer we know best is the “Our Father” which Jesus taught his disciples in today’s Gospel.

This Sunday, we look at some of the specifics of this prayer in order to answer the basic question concerning the purpose of prayer.
