Daily Prayer - 2018-07-15

Presence

My soul longs for your presence, Lord.
When I turn my thoughts to You,
I find peace and contentment.

Freedom

If God were trying to tell me something, would I know?
If God were reassuring me or challenging me, would I notice?
I ask for the grace to be free of my own preoccupations
and open to what God may be saying to me.

Consciousness

Life is busy Lord
Often my best intentions are left undone.
But I know that you are with me in all I say and do,
And in everyone I meet with daily.

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

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

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.
