October 1 Prayer
“The Lord is Compassionate and merciful, slow to anger and filled with unfailing love.” Ps.103:8-9
Compassion in the Hebrew word has a homonym that means “womb”.
Could it be that The lord carries his people like a mother carries a child in her womb?
St. Therese de Liseux is known by ‘the little way’ she chose to live by.
“My vocation is love.” so she sought out to be surrendered to the love that filled her.
Could it be that each of us have this kind of love within us when we say yes to God?
When we say no to every other selfish drive and be fully compelled by his love?
For some of us little acts of love may come easier than others.
For some not so.
We must learn how to love in this way.
Let us not refuse the One who alone can rescue us from our false assumptions and judgments.
Perhaps we could start by noticing.
What is it that awakens compassion within you?
That is where love begins to enter.
The morning light shines so bright in what you see that it almost is too much to take in.
Let it shine on the one thing, the one little tug on your heart and then respond to it with love.
As you breathe in another moment's breath let it be one filled with his spirit of love.
We pray ,
Lord, you’re so kind and tenderhearted and patient with people who fail you!
Your love is like a flooding river overflowing its banks with kindness.
Let us be aware of the love inside of us that is you.
May we be so compelled by your love that it flows every so freely in the little things we do.
In little ways you call us to.
Fill us once again we pray to overflow this day.
Psalm 103 TPT
