Answered Prayer

benson3We are not to think that God cannot, or will not answer any prayer because he seems to let it go by.  Remember that every prayer, prayed in union with our Lord, has stirred the depths of the Divine heart, and is treasured there for an eternal response.  Wait, and you will find the answer, if not in this present time, then on the eternal shores of paradise—the answer of peace! Our prayers go ringing on in the ear of God until they are accomplished in the gifts of eternity.

—Father Richard M. Benson,
founder of the Society of Saint John the Evangelist
