Prayer of the Day
First Week of Advent – Feast of St. John Damascene, Priest & Doctor of the ChurchDecember 4th, 2015
"Do you believe I can do this ? They said: 'Lord, we do!'" Matthew 9 : 28
It seems that Jesus asks us for a response of faith before he acts in our lives. Do we really believe he can and will act for our good? Or are we half-hearted in our reply? It would seem these blind men followed Jesus—how?– we do not know—but they were persistent. Their cries for pity and mercy reached him even when he reached his home or venue. He turned to them with the above query. His answer to their response came swiftly.
Let us continue to ask the Lord for all our needs with a persevering faith, not doubting his response to us. Amen
