Daily Prayer - 2012-11-28


Lord, help me to be fully alive to your holy presence.
Enfold me in your love.
Let my heart become one with yours.


Dear Lord, instil in my heart
the desire to know and love you more.
May I respond to your will for my life.


At this moment Lord I turn my thoughts to you.
I will leave aside my chores and preoccupations.
I will take rest and refreshment in your presence Lord.

The Word of God

Luke 21:12-19

Jesus said to his disciples, "But before all this occurs, they will arrest you and persecute you; they will hand you over to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. This will give you an opportunity to testify. So make up your minds not to prepare your defense in advance; for I will give you words and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to withstand or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, by relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name. But not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your souls."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • The preparation you need to make: don't make any preparation! The call to trust challenges our habits of anxiety and worry and is an invitation to live in the present moment, where Jesus meets us and says, “Peace be with you!”
  • It is easy for people to measure their self-worth by the number of "likes" they accumulate but Jesus asks us not to confuse popularity with happiness and to keep our eyes on what is of true value.


Jesus often asked questions of those who came to him.
Let me sense him close to me now,
Listening to my prayer and asking
‘How can I help you?’
‘What can I give you?’


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.
