January 30 Prayer
‘ I want you to be free from anxiety, concerns, complications
To live a good ordered life, with an unhindered devotion to God.’
‘The widow carefully placed her few copper coins in the offering,
giving everything she had. ’Mat.12:41-44
There is some kind of freedom that comes
when we can give all we have,
letting go of their grasp.
It takes a certain kind of intentionality
But if all of one’s heart is on the true treasure then perhaps
the things of this world could loosen their grip upon the heart.
Take a moment to ask what you are anxious about?
What hinders your interior freedom?
What is the one true treasure that calls your heart?
Now carefully give all that you are concerned and care about to the one who treasures you.
Pray a prayer of trust ;
‘Let my trust be in your mercy, not in myself.
Let my hope be in Your love, not in health or strength,
Or ability or human resources.
I trust you that everything else will become for me,
strength, health, and support.
Everything will bring me to heaven.” - Thomas Merton
We give to you all that hinders us now.
So that our lives will be ordered by your love and mercy.
