Prayer of the Day

Sixteenth Sunday of the Year

July 17th, 2016
"Tell her then to help me." Luke 10 : 40
Martha and Mary

As Jesus travels around a woman named Martha,  invites Him in for refreshment.  She immediately busies herself with the preparations.  But she resents her sister,  Mary,  who contentedly sits by the feet of Jesus,  letting Martha do all the work.  She cannot resist asking Jesus to put a word in for her by telling Mary to get up and help her.

Prayer

Jesus thank you for reminding us that we can get lost in our activity and get cross when it does not work out the way we want or expect. Give us the joy of always choosing the better part. We cannot do so without your special help today and every day of our life. May we always choose the better part. Amen
