listening, saturday

Saturday, January 31

Come to Stillness: Take a few minutes to allow your mind and heart to be still before God.
Opening Prayer: Speak, O Lord, as we come to You, to receive the food of Your holy word.  Take Your truth, plant it deep in us; shape and fashion us in Your likeness, that the light of Christ might be seen today, in our acts of love and our deeds of faith.  Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us all your purposes, for Your glory. (Speak O Lord by Stuart Townend, Keith Getty)

Scripture Reading for the Day: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

Reading for Reflection:
In Jesus we have a master to whom we do not sufficiently listen.  He speaks to each heart the word of life, the only word, but we do not listen.  We want to know what he is saying to others, and do not listen to what he is saying to us.  We are not sufficiently attuned to that transcendental being imparted to all things by divine action. (The Sacrament of the Present Moment by Jean-Pierre De Caussade)

Reflection and Listening: silent and written

Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself    
Closing Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you that your grace is sufficient for me—this day and every day.  Thank you that whatever this day may hold, or whatever it may require, or whatever it may demand, I can always hold on to this truth.  Thanks be to God!
