My Daily Prayers and Readings for 02/05/2014

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

< >< My Prayer >< >

Lord God, You know what today holds and what You want to accomplish in and through me. Clear my mind of preconceived ideas that might blind me to what You have in store for me and those around me today. Help me to mountain-top-higher-self w bannerchoose to follow You into my day, embracing Your will and desire as I live this day You have given me.1  Create a pure heart, and renew a steadfast spirit within me for my one walk in and with You today. As a channel of Your peace and love in all situations with all people. Free of judgement and full of forgiveness and love. Strong in You and Your almighty power. (r or l)  Remembering that if I get nothing else done this day, let me spend it loving You and others first, as You love me. Praying in and through the Spirit and in the name of Jesus on all occasions for me and mine in fulfillment of Your will. Being alert to always pray for those You place in my path. Asking that whenever I speak, words may be given to me, so that I will fearlessly make known the truth in the mystery of the gospel – one walk. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

What is your passion? Ask God to help you know it, keep it, for it is where your heart is. It is where you embrace purpose and discover true value under the sun; it is life, it is joy, it is where your legacy is hidden.

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 02/06/2010

< >< My Daily Prayer >< >

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

I know that Your ways and Your time is not measured by anything under the sun; for one day with You is like thousands elsewhere. I feel this is true of one’s passion; walking with and knowing ones passion under the sun, is like thousands without it. This week we have talked about choices, the discussions we make moment by moment. Finding ones passion is about choices too.

There is a lot we can learn from listening and meditating on Solomon starting with today’s reading and all he shares us in Ecclesiastes. Today I bring my focus through Jesus to passion and divine Providence asking that You help me understand mine, for me and mine. For You know I have accepted and seek to make my legacy not as the world under the sun knows, but as Jesus teaches and I feel Solomon came to realized.

A legacy of faith, hope and love – always looking to You for Your strength through Jesus by seeking His face always.

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, for one walk; in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

< >< Jesus Calling Daily Devotion >< >

February – “Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always.” Psalm 105:4

Today – COME TO ME AND REST. I am all about you, to bless and restore. Breathe Me in with each breath. The way Just ahead of you is very steep. Slow down and cling tightly to My hand. I am teaching you a difficult lesson, learned only by hardship. Lift up empty hands of faith to receive My precious Presence. Light, Life, Joy, and Peace flow freely through this gift. When your focus turns away from Me, you grasp for other things. You drop the glowing gift of My Presence as you reach for lifeless ashes. Return to Me’ regain My Presence. ‘

MATTHEW 11:28-29; 1 TIMOTHY 2:8

< >< Today’s Mass Readings >< >

Reading I
1 Kgs 3:4-13
Solomon went to Gibeon to sacrifice there,
because that was the most renowned high place.
Upon its altar Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings.
In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream at night.
God said, “Ask something of me and I will give it to you.”
Solomon answered:
“You have shown great favor to your servant, my father David,
because he behaved faithfully toward you,
with justice and an upright heart;
and you have continued this great favor toward him, even today,
seating a son of his on his throne.
O LORD, my God, you have made me, your servant,
king to succeed my father David;
but I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act.
I serve you in the midst of the people whom you have chosen,
a people so vast that it cannot be numbered or counted.
Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart
to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong.

For who is able to govern this vast people of yours?”

The LORD was pleased that Solomon made this request.
So God said to him: “Because you have asked for this–
not for a long life for yourself,
nor for riches, nor for the life of your enemies,
but for understanding so that you may know what is right–
I do as you requested.
I give you a heart so wise and understanding
that there has never been anyone like you up to now,
and after you there will come no one to equal you.
In addition, I give you what you have not asked for,
such riches and glory that among kings there is not your like.”

Responsorial Psalm
119:9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
R.  (12b)  Lord, teach me your statutes.
How shall a young man be faultless in his way?
By keeping to your words.
R.
Lord, teach me your statutes.
With all my heart I seek you;
let me not stray from your commands.
R.
Lord, teach me your statutes.
Within my heart I treasure your promise,
that I may not sin against you.
R.
Lord, teach me your statutes.
Blessed are you, O LORD;
teach me your statutes.
R.
Lord, teach me your statutes.
With my lips I declare
all the ordinances of your mouth.
R.
Lord, teach me your statutes.
In the way of your decrees I rejoice,
as much as in all riches.
R.        Lord, teach me your statutes.

Gospel
Mk 6:30-34
The Apostles gathered together with Jesus
and reported all they had done and taught.
He said to them,
“Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.”
People were coming and going in great numbers,
and they had no opportunity even to eat.
So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.
People saw them leaving and many came to know about it.
They hastened there on foot from all the towns
and arrived at the place before them.

When Jesus disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
his heart was moved with pity for them,
for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
and he began to teach them many things.

< >< Today’s Video Reflection >< >

The purpose of divine Providence is to unify by an upright faith and spiritual love those who have been separated in diverse ways by vice. Therefore one who does not endure disturbances or bear up under distress or undergo hardships walks outside love and the purpose of Provodence. — Maximus the Confessor

My Daily Prayers and Readings for 01/17/2010

< >< My Daily Prayer >< >

Abba Father, Lord Jesus, through whom in the Spirit I come to know and understand my one Lord God the Abba Father, Christ Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit through these moments together. Preparing myself for each blessed day by focusing on Him and what He is trying to teach and show me. Finding my thankful heart in all and through all things, so that I can enjoy His Presence with me now and throughout this day that You have made. For only in these moments duplicated through each moment of each day can I rejoice in the moment, refusing to worry about tomorrow knowing that in Jesus I am prepared to accept difficulties as they come. Staying in continual communication with Him, so that I can live above your circumstances even while I am in the midst of them and always returning the anticipation of abundant blessing I know You my Lord God will supply me according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. So I will seek to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let my requests be known to You and when need be crying – Help me Jesus! Always knowing that in these moments I will return to the peace I have with You my Lord God, which surpasses all comprehension, to help guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Walking as one in the Spirit through Jesus with You; One Walk in all things honoring and praising You always, praying that Your light and work within me be visible to others, asking that You guide and direct my work for Your good and the good of others by understanding and using the spiritual gifts You are manifesting in me in Spirit for the benefit of Your will.

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, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

< >< Jesus Calling Daily Devotion >< >

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 – COME TO ME WITH A THANKFUL HEART, so that you can enjoy My Presence. This is the day that I have made. I want you to rejoice today, refusing to worry about tomorrow. Search for all that I have prepared for you, anticipating abundant blessings and accepting difficulties as they come. I can weave miracles into the most mundane day if you keep your focus on Me.

Come to Me with all your needs, knowing that My glorious riches are a more-than-adequate supply. Stay in continual communication with Me, so that you can live above your circumstances even while you are in the midst of them. Present your requests to Me with thanksgiving, and My Peace, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your heart and mind.

PSALM 118:24; PHILIPPIANS 4:19 & 6-7 (NASB)

< >< Today’s Mass Readings >< >

Reading I
Is 62:1-5
For Zion’s sake I will not be silent,
for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet,
until her vindication shines forth like the dawn
and her victory like a burning torch.

Nations shall behold your vindication,
and all the kings your glory;
you shall be called by a new name
pronounced by the mouth of the LORD.
You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the LORD,
a royal diadem held by your God.
No more shall people call you “Forsaken, “
or your land “Desolate, “
but you shall be called “My Delight, “
and your land “Espoused.”
For the LORD delights in you
and makes your land his spouse.
As a young man marries a virgin,
your Builder shall marry you;
and as a bridegroom rejoices in his bride
so shall your God rejoice in you.

Responsorial Psalm
Ps 96:1-2, 2-3, 7-8, 9-10
(3) Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations.
Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all you lands.
Sing to the LORD; bless his name.
Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations.
Announce his salvation, day after day.
Tell his glory among the nations;
among all peoples, his wondrous deeds.
Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations.
Give to the LORD, you families of nations,
give to the LORD glory and praise;
give to the LORD the glory due his name!
Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations.
Worship the LORD in holy attire.
Tremble before him, all the earth;
Say among the nations: The LORD is king.
He governs the peoples with equity.
Proclaim his marvelous deeds to all the nations.

Reading II
1 Cor 12:4-11
Brothers and sisters:
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone.
To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit
is given for some benefit.
To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom;
to another, the expression of knowledge according to the
same Spirit;
to another, faith by the same Spirit;
to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit;
to another, mighty deeds;
to another, prophecy;
to another, discernment of spirits;
to another, varieties of tongues;
to another, interpretation of tongues.
But one and the same Spirit produces all of these,
distributing them individually to each person as he wishes.

Gospel
Jn 2:1-11
There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there.
Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding.
When the wine ran short,
the mother of Jesus said to him,
“They have no wine.”
And Jesus said to her,
“Woman, how does your concern affect me?
My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servers,
“Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings,
each holding twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus told them,
“Fill the jars with water.”
So they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them,
“Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.”
So they took it.
And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine,
without knowing where it came from
— although the servers who had drawn the water knew —,
the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him,
“Everyone serves good wine first,
and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one;
but you have kept the good wine until now.”
Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee
and so revealed his glory,

and his disciples began to believe in him.

< >< Today’s Video Reflection >< >

We must neither doubt nor hesitate with respect to the words of the Lord; rather, we must be fully persuaded that every word of God is true and possible, even if our nature should rebel against the idea; for in this lies the test of faith. — St. Basil the Great
