Daily Prayer - 2013-04-13


Lord, you are always there
waiting for me. 
May I never be too busy to
find time to spend in your presence.


Lord grant me the grace
to have freedom of the spirit.
Cleanse my heart and soul
so I may live joyously in Your love.


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

John 6:16-21

When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were terrified. But he said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid." Then they wanted to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the land toward which they were going.

Some thoughts on today's scripture

  • Here we see a characteristic of Jesus: he keeps his disciples in view, not only when things are going well, but when conditions are stormy. Lord, help me trust that you will never let me out of your sight, and watch over the Christian community as it labours along.
  • Today I can take as my mantra your promise, ‘It is I; do not be afraid’.


Remembering that I am still in God's presence,
I imagine Jesus himself standing or sitting beside me,
and say whatever is on my mind, whatever is in my heart,
speaking as one friend to another.


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.
