Daily Prayer - 2013-10-04


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.


Lord, you created me to live in freedom.
May your Holy Spirit guide me to follow you freely.
Instil in my heart a desire
To know and love you more each day.


There is a time and place for everything, as the saying goes.
Lord, grant that I may always desire
to spend time in your presence.
To hear your call.

The Word of God

Luke 10:13-16

Jesus said to his disciples, "Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the deeds of power done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But at the judgment it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon than for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to heaven? No, you will be brought down to Hades. "Whoever listens to you listens to me, and whoever rejects you rejects me, and whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • Jesus berates the people for not recognising him and listening to him, poising retribution to those who do not listen to those sent by Jesus. He singles out especially those who were privileged to observe his deeds.
  • We recognise that if the best of human and religious values are ignored and trampled upon we, as individuals and as cultures, are not in a good place. Jesus speaks harshly to make the point that he cannot bear wilful corruption of any kind.
  • Could this gospel be asking me to review my moral compass? Could it be asking us: who sets the boundaries between what is a good and what is a bad way to live? Where do I look to find the boundaries that can truly free me?


Jesus, You are always there waiting for me.
Sometimes I get bogged down
with the concerns of this life.
Grant that I may be still more often.
To know Your peace, Your calm.


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.
