Soul: My Lord and Master, I desire to converse with You.

Jesus: Speak, My beloved child, for I am always listening. I wait for you. What do you desire to say?

Soul: Your response.

Jesus: Your words please Me, and your thanksgiving opens up new treasures of graces. But, My child, we should talk in more detail about the things that lie in your heart. Let us talk confidentially and frankly, as two hearts that love one another do (Diary, 1489).

Soul: Your response

My Prayer Response:

My Lord Jesus, I want to love You more. I want to be faithful to Your will. I want to desire and long for You. I want to live the exhortation of St. Paul: “Rejoice always, Pray without ceasing, in all things give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus regarding you all” (1 Thess 5:16-18).
