TODAY’S PRAYER – October 24, 2016

Abba, Father in heaven, Holy and Glorious God, we praise You and thank You today, for You assure us there is no reason to deny life and health to anyone who is suffering. As as every worshippers during the time of Jesus would feed and water the farm animals on the Sabbath, today You declare to us that Your love and help cannot be denied to anyone who comes to Him with faith and deeper longing of Your love. Your point of view is that the Sabbath is made for just that purpose. Father, thank You for giving us always the day to be freed and healed. Everyday is a day of freedom to anyone who places their faith and trust in You.

Father, please reignite Your light within us. Cast away all darkness which permeates our attitude and behaviors. We long to be free. How much we need to be free on of Sabbath days and moment, Lord! Why do we make it so complicated? Father, we thank You for giving special moments in which we who were made in Your image and likeness rest from our labors, put aside the pressing and real commitments that wear us down, and meet You to receive Your peace. Restore us here and now in the place that most needs Your presence. Receive our burdens, and exchange them from Your yoke, which is easy, and Your burden, which is light, because You share it with us. Move all of us with Your Spirit to work and touch us until all Your daughters and sons stand tall, empowered with divine dignity. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

Pray the Sacred Scripture and be transformed in spirit and truth. Click on the link http://www/usccb.org/bible/breadings/102416.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.
