Both Tobit and Sarah pray for God to end their lives. They are suffering greatly and don’t feel like they can go on. Sometimes the difficulties we face are so overwhelming we might be tempted to make the same prayer. However, the end of Sarah’s prayer is the best way to petition God for help. We should bless God for all He has done for us and be thankful for the many miracles, great and small that He performs for us. If we do this, then we will receive help from Him through the Holy Spirit and his angels.
Do we turn to God when we are undergoing trials? Are we faithful in our prayer lives? How can we appreciate what God does for us on a daily basis?
O Lord, help us so we can see the light of your love and have our own devils driven away from us.
