Daily Prayer - 2013-03-02

Presence

I pause for a moment

and reflect on God's life-giving presence

in every part of my body, in everything around me,

in the whole of my life.

Freedom

Everything has the potential to draw forth from me a fuller love and life.

Yet my desires are often fixed, caught, on illusions of fulfillment.

I ask that God, through my freedom

may orchestrate

my desires in a vibrant loving melody rich in harmony.

Consciousness

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

Luke 15:31-32

Then the father said to him, “Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. But we had to celebrate and rejoice, because this brother of yours was dead and has come to life; he was lost and has been found.”

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • God has no favourites; he loved the elder son as much as the younger. Just as this time the younger son needed more care and visible love and affirmation. On the day I feel the need to be forgiven, as on the day I may feel all is okay, I need to know the love of God, always offered in times of prayer.

Conversation

Jesus, You always welcomed little children when you walked on this earth. Teach me to have a childlike trust in you. To live in the knowledge that You will never abandon me.

Conclusion

I thank God for these few moments we have spent alone together and for any insights I may have been given concerning the text.

Amen

If you appreciated the daily prayer or have any suggestions or insights we will be glad to hear from you.
