Daily Prayer - 2012-12-07

Presence

Lord, God, my Creator,
Be close to me now.
My soul yearns for your presence.

Freedom

I try to let go of concerns and worries
that may be dragging me down at this present moment.
I place any concerns I have in Gods hands
- at least for these few minutes of prayer.

Consciousness

My soul longs for your presence, Lord.
When I turn my thoughts to you,
I find peace and contentment.

The Word of God

Matthew 9:27-31

As Jesus went on his way, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to him, "Yes, Lord." Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be done to you." And their eyes were opened. 

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • The blind men follow you with persistence. They have one need, one prayer: “Have mercy on us.”
  • In this coming Holy Year of Mercy, I too cry out to you for sight and insight. As I receive your healing touch of merciful love today, may I become an instrument of your mercy to all whom I encounter.

Conversation

What feelings are rising in me as I pray and reflect on God's Word?
I imagine Jesus himself sitting or standing near me and open my heart to him.

Conclusion

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end.

Amen
