Prayer of the Day

Fourteenth Week of the Year

July 4th, 2016
"Thus says the Lord; 'I will lead her into the desert and speak to her heart.'" Psalm 145

Hosea knew the rupture of trust that comes from infidelity.  Maybe that is why he was a credible messenger of God’s desire to repair Israel’s infidelity.  ‘I will espouse you to me forever….in right and in justice,  in love and in mercy.  In fidelity.’  God is generous.  What about us ?  Ruptures take time to heal,  but healing is possible.  We show gratitude for God’s merciful love by trusting that God reaches out to us and helps us reach out to others.  Our example could call the nation to do the same.


Help us O Lord this day to speak to you from our hearts. Amen
