Prayer of the Day

Daily Prayer

September 7th, 2016
"Rejoice when that day comes and dance for joy." Luke 6 : 23
Footprints in the sand

Jesus is here teaching his disciples the fundamentals of his teaching. He even warns them that for following him, they could be denounced as criminals. His words are true also today where Christians are persecuted for their adherence to Christ. It is happening in several places in today’s world.

Prayer

Jesus, we place before you all those in Syria, Iraq, India, Nigeria and other parts of Africa who are suffering because they are your followers. They are walking in your footsteps. Fill them with your courage and strength. Fill our hearts with courage to defend them. Aid to the Church in need does its best to help these persecuted. Let us be generous in giving it support and please Jesus help us to remember your words in this Gospel. Amen
