TODAY’S PRAYER – September 30, 2016
Abba, Father in heaven, Great and Mighty God, You alone are our God. You hold the whole world in Your hands. You have created and permeated the height and depth and breadth of all creation. We are awed, even as we are overwhelmed by You. We praise You and thank You. Father, teach us to appreciate our littleness before Your Presence. Please do not abandon us when we do not listen to You and Your Son. At times, we have stubborn hearts. Never slow down Your compassion and understanding of us. But enlighten us to see Your point of view and listen to You through the teachers and messengers You sent to us, as we were listening directly to You.
Father, no one among us likes to hear Your displeasure even when we merit correction. We know You are at times disappointed with us, as You are with people of Chorazin and Bethsaida. We thank You today for reminding us that “it is better to be wicked and know it, than to be so unaware, so unconcerned with spiritual things that not even the presence and activity of Jesus make any difference in our life.” So Father, preserve us from sins of indifference, smugness, and pride. These attitudes cause our soul to turn away from grace. Please continue to gift us with understanding, desire, and fervor on our spiritual journey. Keep us open and eager to recognize the signs of Your presence in our lives. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Pray the Sacred Scripture and be transformed in spirit and truth. Click on the link http://www/usccb.org/bible/breadings/093016.cfm
“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.
