TODAY’S PRAYER – February 27, 2017

Abba, Father in heaven, Omnipotent Creator of the world and Most Generous Giver of gifts to humankind, we come to You today, praising and thanking You, for Who You are to us, for what You provide for us, and for what You make of us. While we are grateful for what we receive, our hearts are filled with so much longings that corrupt our appetites, desires for many things, and our wants to have more. We become trapped at times by the lures in this world, and we make the mistake of valuing things more importantly than people. Deep in our hearts is a resistance to give what You ask of us. We thank You for the Word in the Scriptures today, reminding that if our priorities will not change, it can control us and may cause our separation with You at the end. Please rescue us, Lord. “Where our treasure is, there also will our hearts be.”

Like the young man in the gospel, we are sorry for the times our faces fall when You invite us to take a further step and when we go away because we are uncertain of really giving everything to You. There are times we follow You or serve You on a part time basis. Please forgive us for not doing what You seek from us. Please help us to trust You so that we don’t have to rely on things to fulfill the deepest desires of our hearts. Help us to trust Your awesome power over everything and everywhere, even over us. Change our hoarding hearts into sacrificing hearts. Never walk away from us, and make us faithful to You, for deep in our hearts, You, yes You, are our Desire. We ask these through Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.

Pray the Sacred Scripture and be transformed in spirit and truth. Click on the link

We become bold missionary disciples when:
