Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes

Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

Abba Father

Abba Father, you know me well
Made in your image A part of your will
You’ve seen my thoughts
Know my words
You’ve laid your hand upon me, Lord
If I lay down in the dark of the night
Closing my eyes to shut out your light
In my darkness you’re there beside
A loving Father, a hand to guide

If I rise up on the wings of a bird
Soar to the heavens The depths of the earth
Mountain or sea High or low
There’s nowhere to hide, nowhere to go

There’s no hiding place
from the presence of your Spirit
No hiding place
From the searching of my heart
No hiding place
From the hand that’s there to guide me
For wherever I am be it near or far
Wherever I am is the place where you are
Jesus I am not a poet or musician
I have written
a song of praise
in my heart
And in the quietness
of this moment
I shall share it with you
in the certain knowledge
that any imperfections
will be made perfect
in the simple act
of opening my heart
and singing
