Daily Prayer - 2018-01-14


Dear Jesus, as I call on you today
I realise that I often come asking for favours.
Today I'd like just to be in your presence.
Let my heart respond to Your Love.


Lord, grant me the grace to be free from the excesses of this life.
Let me not get caught up with the desire for wealth.
Keep my heart and mind free to love and serve you.


I remind myself that I am in the presence of the Lord.
I will take refuge in His loving heart.
He is my strength in times of weakness.
He is my comforter in times of sorrow.

The Word of God

John 1:35-42

The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, "Look, here is the Lamb of God!" The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" (which translated means Teacher), "where are you staying?" He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated Anointed). He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, "You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter).

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • Jesus’ invitation to John’s disciples to “come and see” is still addressed to each of us. It is an invitation to prayer. And we can continue to ask “to know him more clearly, love him more dearly, and follow him more nearly”.
  • Without John the Baptist Andrew would not have come to know Jesus; without Andrew seeking out his brother, neither would Simon Peter. Jesus brings the Good News, in fact he is the Good News. But he relies on others to spread it, or we might say, to introduce others to him. Do you see this as part of your calling as a Christian? Do you network for Christ?


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.


I thank God for these few moments we have spent alone together and for any insights I may have been given concerning the text.


If you appreciated the daily prayer or have any suggestions or insights we will be glad to hear from you.
