I have wondered for a while now, when I tell people I will pray for them, I do it with genuine intentionality. That is, I mean it. Yet I sometimes forget to pray for their intention.
I adon’t believe God ignores that intention I had though, and I find it consoling to think He considers all of what I intend to pray for (because i can’t possibly list everything). Of course, I don’t forgot every intention, but this does happen occasionally, and I feel bad for forgetting.
Any thoughts? Have you had similar experiences? I like to think in God’s infinite Divine Mercy He looks at our human weakness and hears the prayers we intended to offer for another soul.
