Have no fear, for perfect Love decimates fear. Look at other people through lenses of Love; see them from My perspective. This is how you walk in the Light, and it pleases Me.

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 06/09/2010

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father, Lord Jesus, in the Spirit, one God the Abba Father, Christ Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit create in me a clean heart, renew a right spirit within me, for one walk in and with Jesus.

I believe the need to seek Your love and know You is planted in my heart; what has been difficult to accept and learn how to deal with is my fallen nature. A fallen nature that seeks to hide, likes to walk in darkness and cannot know perfect love because is rejects what is natural and at the source of my being – You. But I am coming to know this will be the battle I will fight as long as I walk under the sun, and fear is an emotion and state that I must truly conquer, not passively deal with, through learning and knowing that I can walk among the fallen without falling myself. And that I will know I can let Your light always shine through me to envelop any darkness that surrounds me or tries to grow within me, by walking and living in Your love and seeing with Your eyes, and never losing the feeling of Your perfect love.

This I pray in Jesus name, asking that You bless me and mine for fulfillment of Your will; in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

June – “For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13

Today – SEEK TO LIVE IN MY LOVE, which covers a multitude of sins: both yours and others’ Wear My Love like a cloak of Light, covering you from head to toe. Have no fear, for perfect Love decimates fear. Look at other people through lenses of Love; see them from My perspective. This is how you walk in the Light, and it pleases Me.

I want My Body of believers to be radiant with the Light of My Presence. How I grieve when pockets of darkness increasingly dim the Love-Light. Return to Me, your First Love! Gaze at Me in the splendor of holiness, and My Love will once again envelop you in Light.

1 PETER 4:8, 1 JOHN 4:18, REVELATION 2:4

Reading 1 1 Kgs 18:20-39

Ahab sent to all the children of Israel

and had the prophets assemble on Mount Carmel.

Elijah appealed to all the people and said,

“How long will you straddle the issue?

If the LORD is God, follow him; if Baal, follow him.”

The people, however, did not answer him.

So Elijah said to the people,

“I am the only surviving prophet of the LORD,

and there are four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal.

Give us two young bulls.

Let them choose one, cut it into pieces, and place it on the wood,

but start no fire.

I shall prepare the other and place it on the wood,

but shall start no fire.

You shall call on your gods, and I will call on the LORD.

The God who answers with fire is God.”

All the people answered, “Agreed!”

Elijah then said to the prophets of Baal,

“Choose one young bull and prepare it first,

for there are more of you.

Call upon your gods, but do not start the fire.”

Taking the young bull that was turned over to them, they prepared it

and called on Baal from morning to noon, saying,

“Answer us, Baal!”

But there was no sound, and no one answering.

And they hopped around the altar they had prepared.

When it was noon, Elijah taunted them:

“Call louder, for he is a god and may be meditating,

or may have retired, or may be on a journey.

Perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.”

They called out louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears,

as was their custom, until blood gushed over them.

Noon passed and they remained in a prophetic state

until the time for offering sacrifice.

But there was not a sound;

no one answered, and no one was listening.

Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.”

When the people had done so, he repaired the altar of the LORD

that had been destroyed.

He took twelve stones, for the number of tribes of the sons of Jacob,

to whom the LORD had said, “Your name shall be Israel.”

He built an altar in honor of the LORD with the stones,

and made a trench around the altar

large enough for two measures of grain.

When he had arranged the wood,

he cut up the young bull and laid it on the wood.

“Fill four jars with water,” he said,

“and pour it over the burnt offering and over the wood.”

“Do it again,” he said, and they did it again.

“Do it a third time,” he said,

and they did it a third time.

The water flowed around the altar,

and the trench was filled with the water.

At the time for offering sacrifice,

the prophet Elijah came forward and said,

“LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel,

let it be known this day that you are God in Israel

and that I am your servant

and have done all these things by your command.

Answer me, LORD!

Answer me, that this people may know that you, LORD, are God

and that you have brought them back to their senses.”

The LORD’s fire came down

and consumed the burnt offering, wood, stones, and dust,

and it lapped up the water in the trench.

Seeing this, all the people fell prostrate and said,

“The LORD is God!  The LORD is God!”

Responsorial Psalm Ps 16:1b-2ab, 4, 5ab and 8, 11

R.     (1b) Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.

Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;

I say to the LORD, “My Lord are you.”

R.     Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.

They multiply their sorrows

who court other gods.

Blood libations to them I will not pour out,

nor will I take their names upon my lips.

R.     Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.

O LORD, my allotted portion and cup,

you it is who hold fast my lot.

I set the LORD ever before me;

with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.

R.     Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.

You will show me the path to life,

fullness of joys in your presence,

the delights at your right hand forever.

R.     Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.

Gospel Mt 5:17-19

Jesus said to his disciples:

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.

I have come not to abolish but to fulfill.

Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away,

not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter

will pass from the law,

until all things have taken place.

Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments

and teaches others to do so

will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven.

But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments

will be called greatest in the Kingdom of heaven.”

To watch video Reflection on today’s Gospel click link at bottom on this email:

We begin our day by seeing Christ in the consecrated bread, and throughout the day we continue to see Him in the torn bodies of our poor. We pray, that is, through our work, performing it with Jesus, for Jesus and upon Jesus. The poor are our prayer. They carry God in them. Prayer means praying everything, praying the work. We meet the Lord who hungers and thirsts, in the poor…..and the poor could be you or I or any person kind enough to show us his or her love and to come to our place. Because we cannot see Christ, we cannot express our love to Him in person. But our neighbor we can see, and we can do for him or her what we would love to do for Jesus if He were visible. — Mother Teresa
