Daily Prayer - 2018-06-13

Presence

As I sit here, the beating of my heart,
the ebb and flow of my breathing, the movements of my mind
are all signs of God's ongoing creation of me.
I pause for a moment, and become aware
of this presence of God within me.

Freedom

Lord, you granted me the great gift of freedom.
In these times, O Lord, grant that I may be free
from any form of racism or intolerance.
Remind me, Lord, that we are all equal
in your loving eyes.

Consciousness

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the cares of this world.
At times like these may I be aware
of the comfort of your Presence,
Your infinite love for me.

The Word of God

Matthew 5:17-19

"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • All the law and the prophets is summed up in the law of love?   St. Paul speaks of giving my body to be burned, but without love, it is as nothing. How is it that we constantly put so many demands and ‘laws’ before the law of love? Is it because it is so challenging, so without limit. I am called to give nothing less than my all!
  • What is it like to read this? Can I dare to ask for this gift? To give my all?  As the poet said “lest having thee I might have naught beside” Talk to Jesus about this? Do I want this gift? Or maybe I am at the stage where I am only able to want, to want it?

Conversation

May your Holy Spirit guide me
In all my dealings with others.
May I use the gift of speech with kindness.

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
