Daily Prayer - 2013-01-25


Dear Lord as I come to you today
Fill my heart and my whole being
with the wonder of your presence.


"I am free."
When I look at these words in writing
They seem to create in me a feeling of awe.
Yes, a wonderful feeling of freedom.
Thank You, God.


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

Mark 16:15-18

And he said to them, ‘Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation. The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.’

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • At one point Jesus said that it was to the ‘lost sheep of the house of Israel’ (of the Jewish people) that he had been sent. But in this scene, as he leaves this earth and ascends into heaven, he tells his followers to set no bounds to their preaching - they are to ‘take on’ the whole pagan world.
  • Saint Paul was to be the great example of this. We celebrate today this special ‘call’ which followed his conversion to the cause of Christ. From now on, nobody is to be considered ‘out of bounds’ when it comes to spreading Jesus’ message.


Jesus you speak to me through the words of the gospels.
May I respond to your call today.
Teach me to recognise your hand at work in my daily living.


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.
