Acts 12:24-13:5a, Psalm 67:2-3, 5-6, 8, John 12:44-50
All the work we undertake to spread the Good News must always be under the guidance and prompting of the Holy Spirit in order for it to bear fruit. My Beloved, when we allow ourselves to be the instruments of God, humbly submitting to His will, He can work mightily in us and bring about His good purposes. Prayer, fasting and laying on of hands is how we can discern Your will and do it. Whatever we do, it must be in concert with the will of the Triune God.
Psalm 67:2-3, 5-6, 8
My Beloved, cover us with Your grace, blessing and peace. Keep Your Face uncovered so we may look to You and be saved. We will let our voices unite with everyone who believes and we will praise Your mighty deeds and tell everyone of Your saving help. Watch over the people You have chosen and keep us close to Your heart always.
My Beloved, You who are the Word of the Father and who reposed in Him eternally was sent to us so that we may believe that we are God's children with an eternal destiny. You are the Way to the Father's House. This is what He intended - that we see Him who has no Form is Imaged and revealed perfectly in You. He who see You sees the Father, He who hears You hears the Father. He who does what You command obeys the Father. You have come to save the world from condemnation You have revealed God's love. In choosing life over death and love over hate we are open to Your invitation to love and obey in order that we may enjoy eternal life beginning in the here and now and extending into eternity.
