“Now therefore revere the Lord,

and serve Him in sincerity and in faithfulness…

PRAYER…

.

O Lord, my God,

do I truly revere You

by my words, my thoughts and my deeds?

.

Do I serve You in sincerity and in faithfulness,

or do I, in fact, selfishly and foolishly serve two masters?

.

Lord, come and take over,

and remove from me all that isn’t from you.

.

Come, Lord, I have decided.

I want to serve You and only You.

Please help me in my decision

and give me strength, self-control and perseverance,

and, above all, fill me with a great love for You.

.

For this I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Lord, I have decided – I will serve You!

YEAR OF FAITH 2012-2013

FROM THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH…

.

[…] It is by looking to Him in faith

that Christ’s faithful can hope that He Himself fulfills His promises in them,

and that, by loving Him with the same love with which He has loved them,

they may perform works in keeping with their dignity:

.

”I ask you to consider that our Lord Jesus Christ is your true head,

and that you are one of His members.

.

He belongs to you as the head belongs to its members;

all that is His is yours:

His spirit, His heart, His body and soul, and all His faculties.

You must make use of all these as of your own,

to serve, praise, love, and glorify God.

.

You belong to Him, as members belong to their head.

And so He longs for you

to use all that is in you, as if it were His own,

for the service and glory of the Father.” (St. John Eudes)

.

.

“For to me, to live is Christ.” (Phil 1:21)

.

[CCC 1698]
