Daily Prayer - 2018-07-15

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

I will ask God's help,
to be free from my own preoccupations,
to be open to God in this time of prayer,
to come to know, love and serve God more.

Consciousness

Lord, you gave me the night to rest in sleep.
In my waking hours may I not forget your goodness to me.
Guide me to share your blessings with others.

The Word of God

Mark 6:7-13

Jesus called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them." So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • We are all sent out by Jesus to do the things he gave most of his time to. So each of us is invited to pray so that we remain in touch with the Good News that we are then invited to preach, each in his or her unique way. Mostly, we do this by our love for those we meet each day for it is this that more than anything else heals people and sets them free from the demons that make them feel insignificant or bad about themselves.
  • The best portion of a good person's life “is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love” (William Wordsworth). Be with Jesus in a quiet place for some time and then listen to his appreciation of how life-giving are your “little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love”.

Conversation

Jesus, you always welcomed little children when you walked on this earth.
Teach me to have a childlike trust in you.
To live in the knowledge that you will never abandon me.

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
