My Daily Prayers and Readings for 01/25/2010

< >< My Daily Prayer >< >

Abba Father, Lord Jesus in the Spirit, as one Lord God the Abba Father, the Christ Son and the Holy Spirit teaching, guiding and transforming me from within moment by moment, step by step, day by day.

I am always move into contemplation by the conversion of Saul into Paul; Jesus as with the disciples is showing us so many things in who, how and when He chooses to ‘call’ to spread His Gospel message of truth, knowledge and understanding of You Lord God. What You are like, what You like and what You desire and expect from us while we walk under the sun.

Today’s Jesus Calling is another example of my being able to feel You are listening to me; my recent written prayers and my daily thoughts moment by moments as I decide to follow You and die to myself for You and for those I love to serve.

For I have lived and felt what St. Francis tells us today about ‘acquiring and keeping tranquility in action. How necessary it is for me (us) to carefully consider what we are capable of accomplishing and never to undertake more than that. It is self-love, ever more anxious to do much rather than to do well and this self-love that wishes to undertake everything and accomplishes nothing.’ Now in the moment with Jesus, focused on letting Him chose what, when, how and who for me by yielding to His presence in me, neither resisting Him nor trying to speed Him up. Seeking to enjoy the tempo of a God-breathed life by letting Him set the pace and holding His hand in childlike trust, before I open up step by step, moment by moment.

Don’t let go Jesus!

In Jesus name I ask and pray, that You bless me and mine for fulfillment of Your will and that You create in me a clean heart, renew a right spirit within me, one walk with Jesus in all times and things, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

January – For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Today – LET MY L0VE ENFOLD YOU in the radiance of My Glory. Sit still in the Light of My Presence, and receive My Peace. These quiet moments with Me transcend time, accomplishing far more than you can imagine. Bring Me the sacrifice of your time, and watch to see how abundantly I bless you and your loved ones.

Through the intimacy of our relationship, You are being transformed from the inside out. As you keep your focus on Me, I form you into the one I desire you to be. Your part is to yield to My creative work in you, neither resisting it nor trying to speed it up. Enjoy the tempo of a God-breathed life by letting Me set the pace. Hold My hand in childlike trust, and the way before you will open up step by step.

Reading I
Acts 22:3-16
Paul addressed the people in these words:
“I am a Jew, born in Tarsus in Cilicia,
but brought up in this city.
At the feet of Gamaliel I was educated strictly in our ancestral law
and was zealous for God, just as all of you are today.
I persecuted this Way to death,
binding both men and women and delivering them to prison.
Even the high priest and the whole council of elders
can testify on my behalf.
For from them I even received letters to the brothers
and set out for Damascus to bring back to Jerusalem
in chains for punishment those there as well.

“On that journey as I drew near to Damascus,
about noon a great light from the sky suddenly shone around me.
I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me,
‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’
I replied, ‘Who are you, sir?’
And he said to me,
‘I am Jesus the Nazorean whom you are persecuting.’
My companions saw the light
but did not hear the voice of the one who spoke to me.
I asked, ‘What shall I do, sir?’
The Lord answered me, ‘Get up and go into Damascus,
and there you will be told about everything
appointed for you to do.’
Since I could see nothing because of the brightness of that light,
I was led by hand by my companions and entered Damascus.

“A certain Ananias, a devout observer of the law,
and highly spoken of by all the Jews who lived there,
came to me and stood there and said,
‘Saul, my brother, regain your sight.’
And at that very moment I regained my sight and saw him.
Then he said,
‘The God of our ancestors designated you to know his will,
to see the Righteous One, and to hear the sound of his voice;
for you will be his witness before all
to what you have seen and heard.
Now, why delay?
Get up and have yourself baptized and your sins washed away,
calling upon his name.’”

Responsorial Psalm
117:1bc, 2
R.  (Mark 16:15 Go out to all the world and tell the Good News.
Praise the Lord, all you nations;
glorify him, all you peoples!
R.        Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.
For steadfast is his kindness toward us,
and the fidelity of the Lord endures forever.
R.        Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.

Gospel
Mk 16:15-18
Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them:
Go into the whole world
and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.

Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved;
whoever does not believe will be condemned.
These signs will accompany those who believe:
in my name they will drive out demons,
they will speak new languages.
They will pick up serpents with their hands,
and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them.

They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

< >< Today’s Video Reflection >< >

In order to acquire tranquility in action it is necessary to carefully consider what we are capable of accomplishing and never to undertake more than that. It is self-love, ever more anxious to do much rather than to do well and this self-love that wishes to undertake everything and accomplishes nothing! — St. Francis DeSales
