Something to think and pray about this week

I offer suggestions for prayer that might help you grow in love for God through getting to know and love the adult Jesus—first of all, for the kind of human being he was and second, for what God did for us through his death and resurrection. As we begin, remember the suggestions for beginning each period of reading or prayer. Here you might want to ask Jesus to reveal himself to you so that you might know him better, love him more deeply, and be like him. We know another person only when that person reveals him—or herself to us. The same is true for Jesus. So, we ask him to reveal himself to us, and then we let the Gospel stories take hold of our imaginations, trusting that God’s Spirit will influence our imaginations to help us know Jesus better.
