TODAY’S PRAYER – August 25, 2016
Abba, Father in heaven, Great are You and highly to be praised. Your greatness is unsearchable. We praise Your name forever. We thank You for watching over us, our every actions and decisions. Today, You call us to stay awake because no one knows the day or the hour of Your final coming; but many of us respond with fear, instead of joy and anticipation. Some are motivated more by fear of punishment than love of You. Father help us to be inspired, to be grateful, and to be keenly aware of the blessings You are showering us. Instead of fear, help us to share Christ’s love joyfully with others, just as St. Paul did with the Christians of Corinth.
Like Paul, we give You thanks for the many blessings You give us. We also rejoice that we are not lacking in any spiritual gift. Please make us firm like the Corinthians, till the end, irreproachable on to the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. Make us holy, tested in time, and refined in the fire. When we feel so weak and our attention is waning, please keep Your Spirit alive in our life so that we may see the ways You are transforming us and the world. Strengthen our will to remain faithful to You and to the commitment we have made to You. Continue to help us to be patient and faithful, especially in times of anxiety and despair.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen

“Filipino Families are Called to be Brave Missionary Disciples“
We become bold missionary disciples when:
- we root all our actions and decisions to the reality of God's love for us.
- we cross over the other side of life where God wishes us to be.
- we allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit.
