Daily Prayer - 2013-10-12

Presence

As I begin this prayer, God is here.
Around me, in my sensations, in my thoughts and deep within me.
I pause for a moment, and become aware
of God's life-giving presence.

Freedom

Lord, you created me to live in freedom.
Mostly I take this gift for granted.
Inspire me to live in the freedom you intended,
with a heart untroubled and with complete trust in you.

Consciousness

Lord, grant that I may always desire
to spend time in your presence.
May I not forget your goodness to me.
Guide me to share your blessings with others.

The Word of God

Luke 11:27-28

While Jesus was speaking, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, "Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts that nursed you!" But he said, "Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!"

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • Prophetic voices ring out in every age and in strange places. Many are not heard, being readily dismissed. Often they proclaim profound messages that inspire life. We are blessed to know you Lord, give us ears that are more attuned to the word you declare to us that it may find a home in us, nourishing us and guiding us in our following of you.
  • We are called to hear the word and put it into action. It has to be incarnated in life (for example, see James 1:22-25 and Mathew 7:24-27 where it is likened to building on rock). Listening and forgetting or ignoring the word means missing the opportunity. God’s word is fruitful. We pray that we may be like Mary who prayed ‘let it be done to me according to your word’ (Luke 1:38).

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
