“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 25:4-5

TODAY’S WORD…

Show me Your ways, Lord,

teach me Your paths.

Guide me in Your truth and teach me,

for You are God my Saviour,

and my hope is in You all day long.

– Psalm 25:4-5

 

REFLECTION…

What a beautifully simple and humble prayer these two verses from Psalm 25 make! What a wonderful prayer for us to start or end the day off with. What an ideal prayer for us to repeat all day long conscious of life’s choices which we have to constantly make.

.

It is a prayer which, however, can only be truly meaningful, if we also go about helping ourselves in learning about God’s ways and about the paths He wishes us to follow. For this, He gave us Scripture – His Word – a divine “roadmap”, which the Holy Spirit can help us interpret.

Also, by gladly participating in and receiving the Sacraments, we can absorb God’s grace and receive that deeper knowledge of Christ and of His message and teachings, which so lovingly indicate the paths that He wants us to follow, and encourage us all along the way.

 

PRAYER…

Show me Your ways, Lord, teach me Your paths.

Guide me in Your truth and teach me,

for You are God my Saviour,

and my hope is in You all day long. Amen.
