Daily Prayer - 2013-06-25

Presence

“Be still and know that I am God”
Lord, may your spirit guide me
to seek Your Loving presence
more and more. For it is there
I find rest and refreshment from
this busy world.

Freedom

Dear Lord, instil in my heart
the desire to know and love you more.
May I respond to your will for my life.

Consciousness

Lord, you are present in all things
And when I take time to simply sit and be with you
My mind rests
And I feel your peace.

The Word of God

Matthew 7:6, 12-14

Jesus said to the crowds, "Do not give what is holy to dogs; and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under foot and turn and maul you.... In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets. Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • The Rule Jesus gives is found in all religions. It seems we cannot escape it! Its negative version is sometimes called the Silver Rule: ‘Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you.’ The Golden Rule which Jesus gives is positive: ‘Do to others as you would have them do to you.’ This demands an active and creative love, and it includes forgiveness and love of enemies.
  • I sit with the Lord and ask him what traces he finds of these Rules in my life.

Conversation

Lord, I know that when I turn to you there is no need for words.
You can see into my heart.
You know my desires and you know my needs.
I place myself into your hands.

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
