Simple Devotion~February 18, 2009
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.
