Prayer of the Day
Daily PrayerNovember 29th, 2014
“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Watch yourselves or your hearts will be coarsened with debauchery and drunkenness and the cares of life, and that day will be sprung on you suddenly, like a trap. For it will come down on every living man on the face of the earth. Stay awake, praying at all times for the strength to survive all that is going to happen, and to stand with confidence before the Son of Man.” ( Luke 21: 34-36)
“Watch yourselves”, this is a warning against any kind of complacency. Jesus must continue the journey embrace God’s will. Jerusalem is the place of his death. The rejected Jesus has compassion for his own people. There is an image of his loving care. The people will continue to worship in Jerusalem. It is the religious leaders and priests who are responsible for the death of Jesus.
