Daily Prayer - 2017-05-18

Presence

"Come to me all you who are burdened
and I will give you rest"
Here I am, Lord.
I come to seek your presence.
I long for your healing power.

Freedom

I try to let go of any prejudices and narrow mindedness
That may be clouding my vision at this present moment.
I hand them over to God’s merciful care,
So I can pray in freedom at this time.

Consciousness

Dear Jesus may I always be aware of your presence,
Your power and your Love,
all the days of my life.

The Word of God

John 15:9-11

Jesus said to his disciples, "As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Default
  • Jesus didn’t issue commandments to control and dominate us but offer them as paths to true happiness. His sole intention is that “my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete” (John 15:11). The mark of a true Christian then surely is joy. There is no purpose in setting out to love others, without first trusting in how much loved we are ourselves. That is how Jesus went about it, "As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you”. We need to abide in Jesus’s love to learn how we are to love others.

Conversation

Lord, you have engraved my name
on the palm of your hand.
Even if others forget me,
you never will.

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
