Prayer of the Day

Second Sunday of Lent

March 16th, 2014
""This is my Son, the Beloved; with him I am well pleased; listen to him!"" Mathew 17 : 5

The course of Jesus’ life has been set,  and each stage and chapter of His life is in preparation for the final event.  Jesus’ ministry follows the Father’s plan,  every action that He does from the beginning must be about the Father’s business.  Jesus submits Himself to the divine Will in His Passion,  because He knows His destiny is in God’s hand.  Like Jesus,  we are set for a happy and glorious ending.  But first,  we too must set out for our journey to Jerusalem.  We must carry our cross and die to our sinful selves.  As we bear our share of the hardships and discouragement we need to hold on to our final goal – the glory that awaits us.  Jesus also suffered.  Paul says; “for here we have no lasting city,  but we seek the one that is to come.”

Prayer Lord, we pray for those whose sense of self is built on wealth and prestige, that they may find renewed identity in Christ. Lord hear us. Amen
