This can be a deeply reassuring message, especially if we are feeling unsettled or fearful and our efforts to pray seem unfocused or ineffective.
Recently I awoke in the night feeling ill and very uncomfortable. My response was to pray as best I could and then attempt to go back to sleep. Soon, however, what had begun as discomfort escalated to pain in the abdomen and elsewhere. I became concerned and found it impossible to focus on what I knew to be true of God as infinite divine Love and of myself as His loved and wholly cared-for expression. Try as I might to resist various fearful thoughts, my thinking was drawn repeatedly into a whirl of anxiety about the situation, and what the ramifications might be if I weren’t able to tend to my work the next day.
After a short time it occurred to me that more than anything I needed to hear what the Father was saying to me. The ministering love of God was, after all, right then present to meet my need.
