Daily Prayer - 2013-06-13

Presence

Dear Lord as I come to you today
Fill my heart and my whole being
with the wonder of your presence

Freedom

By God's grace I was born to live in freedom.
Free to enjoy the pleasures He created for me.
Dear Lord, grant that I may live as You intended,
with complete confidence in Your Loving care.

Consciousness

At this moment Lord I turn my thoughts to you.

I will leave aside my chores and preoccuptions.

I will take rest and refreshment in your presence Lord.

The Word of God

Matthew 5:20

For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • Scribes and Pharisees were righteous and people of the law. Jesus asks for more – for the compassion that sees beyond the law and people’s weaknesses to the glory and love of God in each and all.

Conversation

What is stirring in me as I pray? Am I consoled, troubled, left cold? I imagine Jesus himself standing or sitting at my side and share my feelings with him.

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
