Daily Prayer - 2014-07-17

Presence

“Be still and know that I am God”
Lord, may your spirit guide me
to seek Your Loving presence
more and more. For it is there
I find rest and refreshment from
this busy world.

Freedom

I ask for the grace to believe
in what I could be and do
if I only allowed God, my loving Creator,
to continue to create me, guide me and shape me.

Consciousness

Dear Jesus may I always be aware of your presence,
Your power and your Love,
all the days of my life.

The Word of God

Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus said, "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • Jesus you were so sensitive to the crushing demands on ordinary people. You are so very aware of the poor, and the daily burdens they carry. You offer them the solace of taking on your yoke as they try to eke out a daily living.
  • Advent is a time when you call to me, to come to rest in you. Let me not be afraid to respond to your invitation to find my security and peace in you. May this Advent be a time of deepening my relationship with you.

Conversation

Dear Lord help me to be always
aware of the important things in life.
To care for those around me.
To seek your presence in all I meet.

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.

Amen

If you appreciated the daily prayer or have any suggestions or insights we will be glad to hear from you.
