Daily Prayer - 2014-01-05

Presence

Dear Lord, you have called me by my name.
You have carved me in the palm of your hand.
May I grow in trust and never give in to despair.

Freedom

Lord you gave me life and the gift of freedom.
Through your love I exist in this world.
May I never take the gift of life for granted.
May I always respect the right to life of others.

Consciousness

Life is busy Lord
Often my best intentions are left undone.
But I know that you are with me in all I say and do,
And in everyone I meet with daily.

The Word of God

John 1:1-5

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • I let what is at the heart of God reveal itself to me in this time of prayer: life and light for all. I acknowledge what it is comes between me and receiving life, what darkens me, whatever narrows my vision. The goodness and generosity of God is there for me, wanting to be present in the world through me.
  • There are so many stories of darkness and despair! We even 'entertain' ourselves with threats and prospects of doom! The Gospel speaks of a light which darkness will not overcome. I pay attention to where there is light in my life and ask that God help me to keep the light before me.

Conversation

To communicate we don’t always need to talk.
Can I imagine myself sitting quietly with Jesus?
I looking silently at him and He at me.
How do I feel?

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
