Daily Prayer - 2013-10-19

Presence

Lord, help me to be fully alive to your holy presence.
Enfold me in your love.
Let my heart become one with yours.

Freedom

I try to let go of concerns and worries
that may be dragging me down at this present moment.
I place any concerns I have in Gods hands
- at least for these few minutes of prayer.

Consciousness

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the cares of this world.
At times like these may I be aware
of the comfort of your Presence,
Your infinite love for me.

The Word of God

Luke 12:8-12

Jesus said to the disciples, "And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God; but whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. When they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you are to defend yourselves or what you are to say; for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very hour what you ought to say."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • I acknowledge each human person I meet and offer them dignity. In that way I acknowledge Jesus. When I spend some time adoring God in a church I am challenged to find him in the pulse of humanity when I walk back out on the street.
  • There surely is something odd about a person who wanders through the flowers, the green fields, and looks up at the high mountains and then curses it – blasphemes against all of nature. The beauty of the world is only one tiny sparkle of the diamond light coming from the Holy Spirit. Look at the stars. Browse the amazing images of the galaxies. Think of the brilliant insights and the incredible talents of human beings. Inspirations in dark moments flow in to renew us. All of them are facets of the Holy Spirit.

Conversation

Dear Lord, stay by my side always.
Gain for me a trusting heart.
Thank you for loving me.

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