Prayers

Opening:

Lord Jesus, be the ruler of my heart and thoughts, be the king of my home and relationships, and be the master of my work and service. Help me to make good use of the gifts, talents, time, and resources you give me for your glory and your kingdom.

Read:

2 Thessalonians 1: 1-5, 11-12;

Psalm 96: 1-5;

Matthew 23: 13-22

When the Lord Jesus knocks on the door of your heart are you ready to answer and receive him? How can you shut the door of God's kingdom in our own personal lives? Do you submit your mind to God's word or do you cling to your own thoughts and ideas of what is right, true, and good for you? Do you allow the world's way of thinking to form the way you think, act, and speak - or do you allow God's word of truth to form the way you think, act, and speak? Do you ignore God's word through indifference or lack of reflection on his word?

For reflection:

“Pain is temporary.  It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place.  If I quit, however, it lasts forever.  -Lance Armstrong

Saint of the Day:
