Daily Prayer - 2012-12-07


I bring myself into your presence, O God.
May I always take time to notice and enjoy
the beauty you have created
for my pleasure.


Lord, grant me the grace to be free from the excesses of this life.
Let me not get caught up with the desire for wealth.
Keep my heart and mind free to love and serve you.


I ask how I am within myself today?
Am I particularly tired, stressed, or off-form?
If any of these characteristics apply,
can I try to let go of the concerns that disturb me?

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

  • The deaf will hear, prophesied Isaiah, the eyes of the blind will see; and not only that – they will marvel at all the wonders the Lord has worked among his people (with trouble-makers silenced and wisdom being respected). It will be a totally ‘new age’.
  • The two blind men receive their sight, but they also receive this whole new vision of everything that Jesus was about - they couldn’t stop praising the kingdom that he was ushering in.
  • Even if he hadn’t acceded to their request, they still believed that the granting of it was in his power.


Lord, I know that when I turn to you there is no need for words.
You can see into my heart.
You know my desires and you know my needs.
I place myself into your hands.


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.
