Prayer of the Day

First Monday of Advent

November 28th, 2016
"I tell you, solemnly nowhere in Israel have I found faith like this." Matthew 8 : 11

A centurion seeks Jesus out in the town of Capernaum. He seeks the healing of his paralysed servant.  Jesus offers to go to the house but the centurion tells Jesus he is not worthy of a visit.  He also believes Jesus has the ability to heal from afar.  Jesus is amazed at the centurion’s faith.


Jesus, look into our hearts and strengthen our faith in you. Give us the faith of the Roman centurion. May we never falter in our belief that you are the Son of God and therefore you have the power to heal and redeem all that in our lives weakens our faith. May we too hear you say to us what you said about the faith of the centurion. Amen
