REFLECTION…

.

Never say or do anything

except in the name of the Lord Jesus…

What a wonderful way to keep check on ourselves

and to keep us away from wrong-doing

and out of spiritual trouble!

.

When Jesus became one like us,

He taught us,

by word and by example,

how we should live our lives;

how we should speak and act.

.

If I invoke Him, the Son of the Living God,

before I set out to do anything

– not only when starting off on some difficult task

but also if it’s simply before going out with friends

or just sitting down to watch TV –

then I will be calling on Him to be my witness.

.

Having called upon the Lord,

I will then surely do my utmost to act appropriately,

serenely

and, thankful to have Him by my side,

I find myself giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

.

Every time we act in Jesus name

and follow His example,

we will be giving grateful thanks to the Father,

who so loved us

that He gave His one and only Son,

so that we would not perish

but have eternal life. (cf. Jn 3:16)

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Let all that I do, say or think,

be pleasing to You, O Lord.
