Asking. Receiving. and Acting.

Prayers don't wash the dishes or dismantle the weapons or nurture the children. Helping hands do the work.

But who prays that their presence be unnecessary when help is needed? 

Life's foundation is in common miracles that happen through gracefully synchronized mundane actions.

When we pray for guidance and clarity as to what is helpful and needed, we receive answers in a variety of metaphors and symbols.

Following through with action then allows us to be the common miracles we were born to be.

And a traumatized child is untrustworthy because they've lost faith in themselves and others, thus in Spirit.
