Daily Prayer - 2014-09-27

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

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

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 9:43-45

And all were astounded at the greatness of God. While everyone was amazed at all that he was doing, Jesus said to his disciples, "Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into human hands." But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was concealed from them, so that they could not perceive it. And they were afraid to ask him about this saying.

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • We cannot but admire the skill of Luke in painting the starkest of contrasts between the amazement of 'everyone' at all that He was doing, and their lack of understanding of his future suffering. Jesus is the Saviour who shows us the greatness of God through his suffering for us.
  • Like the disciples, we are frightened by suffering and its apparent meaninglessness. I bring some suffering I know to my prayer, and try to ask Jesus what it means.

Conversation

Dear Lord, help me each day
to seek your presence more and more.
Fill my heart with love for you.

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
