  1. I viewed Violet’s fine post about Jesus and prayer, and tried to leave a comment, but am not sure it went through. However, I thank you and Violet and your other contributors for the helpful and inspiring spiritual food served at UTCOP to strengthen one’s prayer life. ~~+~~

I love to connect with you.
