Daily Prayer - 2018-04-18

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

Lord I ask for the grace to know
That doing your will is a joy
Because your will is my deepest desire
And you are always willing what is best for me.

Consciousness

In God's loving presence I unwind the past day,
starting from now and looking back, moment by moment.
I gather in all the goodness and light, in gratitude.
I attend to the shadows and what they say to me,
seeking healing, courage, forgiveness.

The Word of God

John 6:37-40

Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.’

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • On this day I may choose to bring before the Lord some person or persons who have already passed away, and pray for them. In gratitude for all I have received from them, or asking for pardon for my mistakes in dealing with them, or ask for God’s mercy on them. I find special consolation in Jesus’ words in today’s Gospel: ‘Anyone who comes to me I will never drive away’.
  • I may choose to reflect before God of my own death, whether I feel it near or not. It is the greatest demand on my inner freedom, an invitation to welcome the small deaths that daily life, especially my relationships, demand of me. I ask to grow in the freedom to live life fully: even my own life, so limited and vulnerable, and including death at some point, is called to live with God for eternity, it is already life eternal.

Conversation

Jesus you speak to me through the words of the gospels.
May I respond to your call today.
Teach me to recognise your hand at work in my daily living.

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
