And Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary,

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 12/11/2012

And Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus who is called the Messiah.

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father I love to read and hear about Joseph r or l, and often wonder how much more there would be to learn about and from him if we knew more about Jesus between the ages of 12 and 30. Having to piece together the image of what I father should be, I often think and rely on Joseph as an example to follow. When I come to You each morning so that You can create in me a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me, I often think and meditate on how important being a good father is to me. While I made many mistakes, the fact is, I will be a father as long as I am alive, and it is in my one walk in and with You that I know I can be my best. So I ask that You continue to show and teach me how to be just that, a father like Joseph, in all situations at all times. Help me to be strong in You and Your almighty power, putting on Your full armor by standing firm with the belt of Your truth buckled around my waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with my feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace, taking up the shield of faith, with which I can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Taking the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is Your word, and praying in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests for me and mine in fulfillment of Your will. Asking that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel (r or l) and Your presence and work in me. Remembering that if I get nothing else done this day, let me spend it loving You and others first, as You love me, and Joseph loved Jesus. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen. .
