It’s Time to Get Real With God. Really Real.

There’s a kind of prayer a lot of us usually avoid, and it’s the one that we need so badly. “Lord, I’m hurting right here—please heal me here.”

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary shows us how vital this awareness of our wounds is, and how much good God can do in our lives when we give him access to those places.
