Daily Prayer - 2012-12-06

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

Everything has the potential to draw forth from me a fuller love and life.
Yet my desires are often fixed, caught, on illusions of fulfillment.
I ask that God, through my freedom may orchestrate my desires
in a vibrant loving melody rich in harmony.

Consciousness

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

Matthew 7:21, 24-27

Jesus said to the people, 'Not everyone who says to me, "Lord, Lord", will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one who does the will of my Father in heaven.'Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell-and great was its fall!' 

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • The Lord is the everlasting Rock, says the prophet Isaiah, so trust in the Lord for ever. “For he has brought low the inhabitants of the height; the lofty city he lays low.”. But the faithful ones, on the other hand, can say, “he sets up victory like walls and bulwarks…we have a strong city” (Isaiah 26). Any moment now, he’s going to come and surround us with protection.
  • It is the Lord who is ‘the rock of ages’ – a still point, though the centuries swirl around. The Lord is a solid centre that we can build our life on. If we are faithful to the Lord, the Lord is faithful to us.

Conversation

Lord, I know that when I turn to you there is no need for words.
You can see into my heart.
You know my desires and you know my needs.
I place myself into your hands.

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
