Daily Prayer - 2014-01-30

Presence

"I stand at the door and knock," says the Lord.
What a wonderful privilege
that the Lord of all creation desires to come to me.
I welcome His presence.

Freedom

Lord, may I never take the gift of freedom for granted.
You gave me the great blessing of freedom of spirit.
Fill my spirit with Your peace and Your joy.

Consciousness

We are all pilgrims on a journey to you, Lord.
May we contemplate your time on earth,
and, with Your help, follow in your footsteps.

The Word of God

Mark 4:21-25

He said to them, ‘Is a lamp brought in to be put under the bushel basket, or under the bed, and not on the lampstand? For there is nothing hidden, except to be disclosed; nor is anything secret, except to come to light. Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’ And he said to them, ‘Pay attention to what you hear; the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you. For to those who have, more will be given; and from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away.’

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • More sayings of Jesus with a combination of plain common sense and obscurity. We understand first that Jesus wants his close followers to let the light of his teaching shine out. Others may choose to stay in the dark, indifferent or hostile. The second half of the passage is obscure. It seems to mean that just as the wealthy keep accumulating riches and the poor are consistently deprived, so those with spiritual insight will be further enlightened, while those without it will only fall into worse ignorance.
  • Does Sacred Space help me to come to know Jesus and let the light and warmth of his goodness and teaching shine out before others?

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

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
