“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 40:1-3

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and He turned to me and heard my cry.
.

He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
. .

He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what He has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord.

.

– Psalm 40:1-3 (NLT)

My Lord and my God,

I know that You love me,

and I thank You for Your faithfulness in responding.

Grant, O Lord,

that, filled with hope,

and with faith and trust in my heart

I will always be prepared to wait patiently till You respond;

to accept that Your will be done;

and to never stop reaching out for Your helping hand

O Lord, my God, my Healer and my Saviour,

I lift my heart to You,

and I sing a song of praise and thanks,

to give You glory and honour.

Amen.

QUOTE…

.

The Holy Spirit…teaches us-to pray in hope.

Conversely, the prayer of the Church and personal prayer nourish hope in us.

.

The psalms especially, with their concrete and varied language,

teach us to fix our hope in God:

"I waited patiently for the LORD;

He inclined to me and heard my cry." [Ps 40:1]

.

As St. Paul prayed:

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,

so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope." [Rom 15:13]

.

– Catechism of the Catholic Church – CCC 2657

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

Jesus, I trust in You!
