Daily Prayer - 2018-12-07

Presence

Jesus waits silent and unseen to come into my heart.
I will respond to His call.
He comes with His infinite power and love
May I be filled with joy in His presence.

Freedom

Lord, guide me always
to do your holy will
knowing that your strength
will carry me through.

Consciousness

Knowing that God loves me unconditionally,
I look honestly over the last day, its events and my feelings.
Do I have something to be grateful for? Then I give thanks.
Is there something I am sorry for? Then I ask forgiveness.

The Word of God

Matthew 9:27-31

As Jesus went on his way, two blind men followed him, crying loudly, "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to him, "Yes, Lord." Then he touched their eyes and said, "According to your faith let it be done to you." And their eyes were opened.

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • For the blind men to be healed, two things were necessary: they had to believe that Jesus could heal them, and they had to want to be healed. We might think that the latter is a given – who would not want to be sighted? But do I truly want to move from spiritual darkness into light? To move from spiritual sleep into full wakefulness?
  • Lord, grant me eyes that see, and ears that hear, and a heart that understands what it is you want me to do with this tremendous gift of earthly life.

Conversation

Dear Jesus, I can open up my heart to you.
I can tell you everything that troubles me.
I know you care about all the concerns in my life.
Teach me to live in the knowledge
that you who care for me today,
will care for me tomorrow and all the days of my life.

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.
