Prayer of the Day

Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

July 16th, 2015
"Come to me all you who labour and are burdened and I will refresh you. " Matthew 11 : 28

This is God’s invitation to us all without exception.  God loves every one of us.  We are all his children.  His special care is for those who are over-burdened and oppressed.  As Pope Francis keeps telling us God has a special love for the poor and the needy.  God’s providence is always at work in our lives.  We must keep reminding ourselves that nothing is impossible to God.  Having given us his son, Jesus,  will he not give us everything else as well.  The choice is ours then either to accept God in our lives or reject him.  As we are made for God there will always be a natural longing in our hearts for God.  Prayer is our way to keep in touch with the God who loves us with a love beyond all telling.


So, we pray:- In you O Lord, we put our trust. Help us to grow in faith and love. Amen
