TODAY’S WORD…

.

One day Jesus was praying in a certain place.

When He finished, one of His disciples said to Him,

“Lord, teach us to pray…”

.

– Luke 11:1 (NIV)

.

.

.

THE LORD’S PRAYER…

…please say it slowly, respectfully, and meaningfully…one phrase at a time. Remember who you are addressing.

.

Our Father,

who art in heaven,

hallowed be Thy Name;

Thy kingdom come;

Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

.

.

QUOTES…

.

“What prayer could be more true before God the Father

than that which his Son, Who is Truth, uttered with His Own lips?”

.

– St. John Chrysostom

.

.

“Sometimes

when I am in such a state of spiritual dryness that not a single good thought occurs to me,

I say very slowly the ‘Our Father,’ or the ‘Hail Mary,’

and these prayers suffice to take me out of myself,

and wonderfully refresh me.”

.

– St. Therese of Lisieux

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Holy Spirit, give me the wisdom to see my faults and the meekness to admit them,

so that my prayer may reach and be acceptable to the Father.
