Daily Prayer - 2013-03-02

Presence

What is present to me is what has a hold on my becoming.

I reflect on the Presence of God always there in love,

amidst the many things that have a hold on me.

I pause and pray that I may let God

affect my becoming in this precise moment.

Freedom

Lord, may I never take the gift
of freedom for granted. You gave
me the great blessing of freedom of
spirit. Fill my spirit with Your peace and
Your joy.

Consciousness

Knowing that God loves me unconditionally, I can afford to be honest about how I am. How has the last day been, and how do I feel now?
I share my feelings openly with the Lord.

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

Do I notice myself reacting as I pray with the Word of God? Do I feel challenged, comforted, angry? Imagining Jesus sitting or standing by me, I speak out my feelings, as one trusted friend to another.

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
