My Daily Prayers and Readings for 12/10/2010

< >< My Prayer >< >

Here I am Lord God, the words buried in uncertainty and confusion which I pray is because of good intentions gone astray rather than pride, for I do seek a humble heart and a meek spirit always willing to put the other one’s needs above mine, knowing You will provide me what I need for today. So I listen, I wait, I seek to walk with eyes of faith and a heart likened to Jesus’, I trust in You.

Abba Father in the name of Christ Jesus who lives within me through the Holy Spirit I pray that You create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me, for my one walk in and with Jesus today. Asking that You bless me and mine in fulfillment of Your will and keep us from evil and pain. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

December – “For to us a child is born… And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” ISAIAH 9:6

Today – MAKE ME THE FOCAL POINT of your search for security. In your private thoughts, you are still trying to order your world so that it is predictable and feels safe. Not only is this an impossible goal, but it is also counterproductive to spiritual growth. When your private world feels unsteady and you grip My hand for support, you are living in conscious dependence on Me.

Instead of yearning for a problem-free life, rejoice that trouble can highlight your awareness of My Presence. In the darkness of adversity, you are able to see more clearly the radiance of My Face. Accept the value of problems in this life, considering them pure joy. Remember that you have an eternity of trouble-free living awaiting you in heaven.

ISAIAH 41:10, PSALM 139:10, JAMES 1:2

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 06/04/2010

< >< 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 follow the way set down by my Lord Jesus and taught by St. Paul in today’s reading, a way of life, a purpose, in faith, with patience and love through endurance aware and accepting  persecutions and sufferings as they may come for I know that if my Lord was persecuted and suffered so to must I to walk His way. I grip Your hand tightly seeking close communication throughout this day asking that my thoughts and words be richly flavored with trust in You and thankfulness for all Your blessings including this day and this time to share with You.

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 – WELCOME CHALLENGING TIMES as opportunities to trust Me. You have Me beside you and My Spirit within you, so no set of circumstances is too much for you to handle. When the path before you is dotted with difficulties, beware of measuring your strength against those challenges. That calculation is certain to riddle you with anxiety. Without Me, you wouldn’t make it past the first hurdle!

The way to walk through demanding days is to grip My hand tightly and stay in close communication with Me. Let your thoughts and spoken words be richly flavored with trust and thankfulness. Regardless of the day’s problems, I can keep you in perfect Peace as you stay close to Me.

Reading 1 2 Tm 3:10-17

You have followed my teaching, way of life,

purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions,

and sufferings, such as happened to me

in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra,

persecutions that I endured.

Yet from all these things the Lord delivered me.

In fact, all who want to live religiously in Christ Jesus

will be persecuted.

But wicked people and charlatans will go from bad to worse,

deceivers and deceived.

But you, remain faithful to what you have learned and believed,

because you know from whom you learned it,

and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures,

which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation

through faith in Christ Jesus.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching,

for refutation, for correction,

and for training in righteousness,

so that one who belongs to God may be competent,

equipped for every good work.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 119:157, 160, 161, 165, 166, 168

R.     (1) O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

Though my persecutors and my foes are many,

I turn not away from your decrees.

R.     O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

Permanence is your word’s chief trait;

each of your just ordinances is everlasting.

R.     O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

Princes persecute me without cause

but my heart stands in awe of your word.

R.     O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

Those who love your law have great peace,

and for them there is no stumbling block.

R.     O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

I wait for your salvation, O LORD,

and your commands I fulfill.

R.     O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

I keep your precepts and your decrees,

for all my ways are before you.

R.     O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

Gospel Mk 12: 35-37

As Jesus was teaching in the temple area he said,

“How do the scribes claim that the Christ is the son of David?

David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said:

The Lord said to my lord,

‘Sit at my right hand

until I place your enemies under your feet.’

David himself calls him ‘lord’;

so how is he his son?”

The great crowd heard this with delight.

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness ” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather (B)boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 04/30/2010

< >< My Prayer >< >

Abba Father, Lord Jesus, in the Spirit, one God the Abba Father, Christ Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit.

I feel Jesus is my way, my teacher, my Savior; reinforcing truths and revealing Your secrets moment by moment in this time and most importantly in each moment that I remain consciously aware of Your presence through Him in the Spirit. The secrets to heaven on earth, and eternal life with You.

Today once again You teach me about the secrets of walking in insufficiency and learning how to let Your power become perfect in my weakness, rejoicing in the moments of my one walk with You.

O that You would clean heart, renew a right spirit within me, for this one walk; and that You would continue to bless me and mine for fulfillment of Your will. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

March – “In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:6

Today – WHEN SOME BASIC NEED IS LACKING-time, energy, money-consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence. When you begin a day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment. This is where you are meant to live-in the present; it is the place where I always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me.

The truth is that self-sufficiency is a myth perpetuated by pride and temporary success. Health and wealth can disappear instantly, as can life itself. Rejoice in your insufficiency, knowing that My Power is made perfect in weakness.

Reading 1 Acts 13:26-33

When Paul came to Antioch in Pisidia, he said in the synagogue:

“My brothers, children of the family of Abraham,

and those others among you who are God-fearing,

to us this word of salvation has been sent.

The inhabitants of Jerusalem and their leaders failed to recognize him,

and by condemning him they fulfilled the oracles of the prophets

that are read sabbath after sabbath.

For even though they found no grounds for a death sentence,

they asked Pilate to have him put to death,

and when they had accomplished all that was written about him,

they took him down from the tree and placed him in a tomb.

But God raised him from the dead,

and for many days he appeared to those

who had come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem.

These are now his witnesses before the people.

We ourselves are proclaiming this good news to you

that what God promised our fathers

he has brought to fulfillment for us, their children, by raising up Jesus,

as it is written in the second psalm,

You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 2:6-7, 8-9, 10-11ab

R.          (7bc)  You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.

“I myself have set up my king

on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will proclaim the decree of the LORD:

The LORD said to me, “You are my Son;

this day I have begotten you.”

R.          You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.

“Ask of me and I will give you

the nations for an inheritance

and the ends of the earth for your possession.

You shall rule them with an iron rod;

you shall shatter them like an earthen dish.”

R.          You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.

And now, O kings, give heed;

take warning, you rulers of the earth.

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice before him;

with trembling rejoice.

R.          You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.

Gospel Jn 14:1-6

Jesus said to his disciples:

“Do not let your hearts be troubled.

You have faith in God; have faith also in me.

In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.

If there were not,

would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?

And if I go and prepare a place for you,

I will come back again and take you to myself,

so that where I am you also may be.

Where I am going you know the way.”

Thomas said to him,

“Master, we do not know where you are going;

how can we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me.”

< >< Today’s Video Reflection >< >

If you want God to hear your prayers, hear the voice of the poor. If you wish God to anticipate your wants, provide those of the needy without waiting for them to ask you. Especially anticipate the needs of those who are ashamed to beg. To make them ask for alms is to make them buy it. — St. Thomas of Villanova
