We read about two prayers. The prayer of the Lord Jesus was fulfilled in St Paul, and he in turn prayed for his flock. That prayer of the Lord Jesus has echoed down history to our lives today. How do we experience the prayer of the Lord Jesus? Is it being fulfilled? If yes, to what degree? Are we living in perfect unity with Christ and with those whom the Lord has given us to minister? How about our prayers for those entrusted to us, to be ministered by us, primarily those in our own homes? Can we say, like St. Paul, that we too consider our life worth nothing to us, and our only aim is to finish the race and complete the task that the Lord has given us, to testify to the good news of God’s amazing grace? Are we proclaiming God’s will to those under our care? The Lord’s prayer is enough to equip and empower us to do what is humanly impossible. Let us cling to him for his power is made perfect in weakness. When we say “yes”, God will minister to us and empower us for ministry.
Prayer: Abba Father, thank you for refreshing my weariness with the showers of your mercy and grace. Amen.
