Daily Prayer - 2014-02-27

Presence

I remind myself that, as I sit here now,

God is gazing on me with love and holding me in being.

I pause for a moment and think of this.

Freedom

Lord grant me the grace
to have freedom of the spirit.
Cleanse my heart and soul
so I may live joyously in Your love

Consciousness

In God's loving presence I unwind the past day, starting from now and looking back, moment by moment.
I gather in all the goodness and light, in gratitude.
I attend to the shadows and what they say to me, seeking healing, courage, forgiveness.

The Word of God

Mark 9:41

For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward.

  • I pray for all of those who do me small kindnesses, that I may receive graciously and grow in appreciation of the many ways in which God blesses me.
  • I give thanks that I am able to be an instrument of God's goodness in the world. I ask God to bless me that I may see how I might, in turn, be a blessing to others.

Conversation

What feelings are rising in me as I pray and reflect on God's Word? I imagine Jesus himself sitting or standing near me and open my heart to 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
