Daily Prayer - 2013-02-20


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


Thank you God for my freedom
May I use this gift to do what I can
for those who are oppressed or burdened.


In the presence of my loving Creator,
I look honestly at my feelings over the last day,
the highs, the lows and the level ground.
Can I see where the Lord has been present?

The Word of God

Luke 11:29-32

When the crowds were increasing, Jesus began to say, "This generation is an evil generation; it asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so the Son of Man will be to this generation. The queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to listen to the wisdom of Solomon, and see, something greater than Solomon is here! The people of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the proclamation of Jonah, and see, something greater than Jonah is here!"

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • People are coming to Jesus looking for signs. He compares himself to Solomon and Jonah - who were signs from God in their lifetime. He, however, speaks with greater authority than these. •
  • What signs in your life are leading you to Jesus?
  • Who are your advisors and whose voice do you listen to when you think about the deep meaning of your life?


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.


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.
