Prayer of the Day

Twenty Fourth Sunday of the Year

September 11th, 2016
"Then the father said to him, 'Son, you are always with me.'" Luke 15 : 31

Jesus tells three parables about God’s joy in forgiving sinners;  the man with the lost sheep;  the woman with the lost silver pieces;  the parent with the lost prodigal child.   This Sunday is for the lost and found department of our lives and home.  The ‘Lost and Found’ department contains an encyclopaedia of life stories.  We lose by ignorance and impulsiveness.  We have been treated mercifully,  and the grace of Our Lord has been granted us in overflowing measure,  along with the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

Prayer

Lord in your goodness have mercy on me. Amen
