Wasting time with God. That's what some people call it. It's the time we spend with the Father/Jesus/Holy Spirit when it seems like nothing is going on. We're not conversing, we're just enjoying each other's company, sharing the same space.
Perhaps it's like a long-married couple who don't talk so much any more, but they don't want to be away from each other either. In a book I read recently an older gentleman told his adult children, when their mother had to spend some time in hospital, "You're mother and I have never spent a night apart. I don't intend to start now." So he slept in his wife's hospital room. Conversation is not always necessary, but presence is.
If we've never spent time like this with God, it can be helpful to imagine our favorite place - a beach, the mountains, the woods - and invite God to join us. Replace the present with God's presence.
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
