What happens to us when we die?

daily asterisk

We talk about intention in prayer when we hold some person or thing for which we are praying in simplicity before God, not asking for anything or expecting any outcome, just holding them in our hearts in God’s presence. Our intentions exist “in” God. So intentions do not necessarily need an “approach” or “permission.” There is no need for a formal address such as, “Dear God…” We can simply will them or hold our intentions in God.
