Prayer of the Day
Daily PrayerJune 18th, 2015
In the 1st reading, ( 2 Cor. 11: 1—11), the writer Paul , acknowledges his dependence on God: we are not to be led away by false notions—there is only one Jesus whom we follow, and as his fellow –workers we are to be independent.
Similarly, Matthew recites the “ Our Father,” given by Jesus to the disciples, which has also been acknowledged as a way of life. The emphasis is on forgiveness and doing the will of the Father as it is done in Heaven. Praying the “Our Father” and asking him to be present in our hearts as we listen to him, we begin to realise his tremendous care for each of us. Through this we can respond to others in forgiveness.
