Daily Prayer - 2012-12-12


I reflect for a moment on God's presence around me and in me.
Creator of the universe, the sun and the moon, the earth,
every molecule, every atom, everything that is:
God is in every beat of my heart. God is with me, now.


I ask for the grace to believe
in what I could be and do
if I only allowed God, my loving Creator,
to continue to create me, guide me and shape me.


Knowing that God loves me unconditionally,
I look honestly over the last day, its events and my feelings.
Do I have something to be grateful for? Then I give thanks.
Is there something I am sorry for? Then I ask forgiveness.

The Word of God

Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus said, "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • The reign of the coming saviour king will not just bring security and welcome to any persons who feel lost and abandoned. Jesus’ kingdom also promises relief and support to those who simply feel that life has become too much for them.
  • Jesus understands each of us better than we understand ourselves, his heart – gentle and humble, goes out to us.
  • One day Jesus will invite his band of first followers to come apart to a quiet place and to rest a while. They will feel at ease in his presence and be rejuvenated.
  • This ‘rest’ – a sense of having been accepted, banishes weariness and renews our energy. No surprise here - the Saviour Lord himself happens to be the energy-centre of the universe, the creator - the one who drills the stars.


Dear Lord, help me each day
to seek your presence more and more.
Fill my heart with love for you.


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.
