Why Belief Alone Isn’t Enough

Have you ever heard someone state, ” I believe in God, but I don’t believe in prayer?” Is it logical to have an intellectual belief in the existence of God but not trust in His providence and care?

Today Fr. Mike challenges us to know God more than just knowing about God and to realize that belief alone is not enough. God is not some cosmic genie who doles out magic wishes but a loving Father who wants to meet us in the intimacy of prayer. Do you believe that?
