Simple Devotion~February 18, 2009

For Today...

Dear Lord,

I bring You my shortcomings... my impatience, my laziness, my failure to do all the good I can. Forgive me for the ways I do not cooperate with Your grace which you give to me in such abundance each day.

I bring You my worship and praise... simply for who You are; for the majesty of Your creation; for Your love and mercy; for all your graces and blessings and for Your Divine Providence in my life. Above all for loving me enough to die for me.

I bring You my prayer... for all those You have given to me in this life; those who remain and those who have gone through death or for other reasons. I give you all those who are in need of prayer and all those who have asked me for prayer because they or someone close to them is suffering. I wish to bring you my prayer in all that I think, say and do.

You spoke to me... last Sunday's Gospel about the leper whom You healed. In this I saw my own spiritual leprosy of which you mercifully healed me. Thank You.


Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello...I am looking forward to getting to know you better...I'm off to subscribe to your blog ;)

I forgot to ask, what does the black box at the end of your blog mean? It says no thanks I already have a messiah. Doylene
