For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, it's important for me to remember that sometimes there is not enough proof in the world when dealing with closed minded individuals. I understand that sometimes I just have to walk away and shake the dust off of my feet if for no other reason than to keep me focused and clear on my spiritual progression path. While this can be frustrating in dealing with others, just as Jesus sighed in frustration in the Scripture below, I understand that I should not waste my energy when my spirit tells me that it won't do any Good. I realize now that some individuals (including myself) have to learn in our own time and in our own way. Jesus knew that the Pharisees wouldn't believe, no matter how much proof He presented to them. While I have witnessed this same behavior in others regarding various matters, I have also acted and reacted the same in various matters of my Life, including Love. There are times when I just don't want to believe something, so I don't. I understand this is also true for those who do not want to believe You and Your Word so they try to intellectualize and rationalize their unbelief. If they won't accept Your proof, then I certainly can't give them proof because to them there can be no proof. Father, I know that without the 'acceptance' of movement of the Holy Spirit, it is impossible to recognize the Truth and I need to just leave it at that, just as Jesus did. Thank You for this awareness because I can use the awareness in other areas of my Life when I know that no proof will be enough and that it's time to just walk away.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark
11 The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven to test Him.
12 He sighed from the depth of His Spirit and said, "Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation."
13 Then He left them, got into the boat again, and went off to the other shore.

Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
