Luke 6:12-16

Now during those days he went out to the mountain to pray; and he spent the night in prayer to God. And when day came, he called his disciples and chose twelve of them, whom he also named apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, and James, and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James son of Alphaeus, and Simon, who was called the Zealot, and Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

    • Jesus made his decision following a night spent in prayer to God. When did I last pray before making a decision? Do I refer all my decisions to God as a wise and loving parent?
    • Lord, you have inscribed me on the palm of your hands. You always keep me in your mind and heart. In this Sacred Space of prayer I ask now for your help and your guidance in all that I attempt to do, no matter how trivial it may seem.

    • Whenever I see the names of the disciples listed, I dare to include mine among them as I recognise that Jesus calls me to be a disciple too. I am not being presumptuous or vain but ask again for the humility I need to be a follower of Jesus.
    • I give thanks to God for those people upon whom I have relied, from whom I have received blessings; their discipleship has built me up in faith and I pray that I may do likewise for others.

    • Jesus is looking beyond the present listeners to a far-off future, when his teaching will change the world. To do this, he called, and he chose twelve men, ordinary men, without influence or special training. What equipped them was the knowledge and love of Jesus.
    • Lord, may that be my armament too.
    • After prayer Jesus chose his first community. The beginnings of the church are here. These are the ones who would gather with others at Pentecost and move out into the whole world to proclaim the good news. As the gospel goes on we will get to know some of them well. They are just like each of us - and we are just like each of them.
