 After quite a long time of living in Japan, experienced many difficulties in life, in studying as well as in working, I feel really tired. There seemed to be time I felt like wanted to give up everything to come back to my life in the past with my family, with my friends, with free time to relax and enjoy life. At these difficult moments, I only want to talk to the Lord, whisper to him about my difficulties, my thoughts and ask him to help me over come all these difficulties to have a better future. 201607_2_2

 

Time has passes, it’s 1 year and 9 months until now which is not much but it is enough to experience life without family and loved ones in a foreign country. Besides my routines and daily activities, I spend a little time with God. It is just a short time comparing to my whole time of studying and working.

 

Today when look back and realize that I did not have such a long time to pray and to be with the Lord as I have it today.

 

The prayer time helps me be able to meet, connect with the priests, brothers, sister and to know one another especially to spend more time with the Lord and to listen to others’ sharing of their difficulties in life. When listening to others’ sharing of their difficulties, I have empathy for them and I am also aware of my difficulties but I realize and experience that God is always with us all.


I feel luckier since I have been in this foreign country that I still have time and opportunities to be with God weekly and receive much help from others. Although life here is very difficult, I believe all these difficulties are the challenges from God for all of us.

 

Overcome daily difficulties helps us overcome harder time with big problems and tasks. Each day dealing with difficulties helps me grow and live better.

The prayer day helps all of us typically me not only feel relaxed after a long time dealing with the business and worries from life, but also be able to experience the solitude to rest, to pray, to be close to God and whisper with Him all of our difficulties, desires and ask for the grace to be at peace with him and see his presence in all that we do and experience.

 

Through the sharing of the priest, of all of us, and through the silent time in prayer, we all feel heart-lighted and comfortable at the end, and it seems like we all have the same feeling that we have to take effort, eager to spend time with the Lord more, love him and do some sacrifices for him more.

 

Saying goodbye to all, I come home with a peaceful heart after guided by God’s words and also experience the new spirit and new energy. I promise to myself, I will try my best and do more sacrifices to serve God in everyone.

 

I am so grateful to Father, Brother and Sister who organize this meaningful and beautiful prayer day for us. This day also helps each of us understand one another better so that we can cooperate together to serve God better and try to let God’s words more deepened in us each day.

We continue to ask for God’s graces from God to all of us. May he guide, inspire and support us so that we always love him and love others with all our hearts.

 

This is my little reflection about the prayer day we experiences. I hope we will meet one another again next time to pray again and to be together in God and that there will be more people who will join us for this prayer service. Thank you.
