Daily Prayer - 2018-09-14

Presence

I pause for a moment, aware that God is here.
I think of how everything around me,
the air I breathe, my whole body,
is tingling with the the presence of God.

Freedom

Lord grant me the grace
to have freedom of the spirit.
Cleanse my heart and soul
so I may live joyously in your love.

Consciousness

As I spend this time with you, Lord,
I am aware of how blessed I truly am.
I think of the love and laughter in my life,
And I feel grateful.

The Word of God

John 3:13-17

No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. ‘Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • On Good Friday we are caught up with the suffering and death of Jesus and the cost to Him of losing his life in such a painful way. Today, the Feast of The Exaltation of the Holy Cross, we celebrate his great love for us as shown in that act of suffering, and praise Him in thanksgiving for thinking of us in this way. Greater love than this no one can have – it is the ultimate of the expression of love.
  • Our thanksgiving is best shown in our attempts to live by the values of Jesus and to appreciate that He is our way, our truth, and our life.
