Daily Prayer - 2013-04-21

Presence

Dear Jesus, today I call on you in a special way.
Mostly I come asking for favours.
Today I'd like just to be in Your presence.
Let my heart respond to Your Love.

Freedom

Lord, you created me to live in freedom.
May your Holy Spirit guide me to follow you freely.
Instil in my heart a desire
To know and love you more each day.

Consciousness

My soul longs for your presence, Lord.
When I turn my thoughts to you,
I find peace and contentment.

The Word of God

John 10:27-30

My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand. What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father's hand.The Father and I are one.'

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • Once again, Lord, your words ease our aching hearts. You know us; you give us your best gift, which is eternal life; you will defend us from anyone who tries to snatch us away from you. What more can we ask?
  • On my side is the invitation to follow you. But do I think of myself as your follower? My daily prayer helps me to keep you always in view, to listen to your voice and to deepen the relationship that exists between us. Thank you for this graced time.

Conversation

What is stirring in me as I pray?
Am I consoled, troubled, left cold?
I imagine Jesus himself standing or sitting at my side and share my feelings with him.

Conclusion

I thank God for these few moments we have spent alone together and for any insights I may have been given concerning the text.
