Isaiah 55:10-11 +++ 0 +++ Matthew 6:7-15 03 March 2020
Slow me down Lord, especially this Lent, a season when you invite us to rely in you alone as our life and fulfillment.
Forgive us Lord for being so impatient, when we cannot wait because we want to rush everything simply because we always have so many plans in life; hence, we want total control that we refuse to trust others, especially you, our dearest, loving God.
We always want to rush you, to be quick in fulfilling your words. We refuse to trust in your words that never fail.
Thus says the Lord: “Just as from the heavens the rain and snow come down and do not return there till they have watered the earth, making it fertile and fruitful, giving seed to the one who sows and bread to the one who eats, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me void, but shall do my will, achieving the end for which I sent it.”Isaiah 55:10-11
Teach us to purify our dispositions and attitudes to you this Season of Lent, Lord.
Teach us that attitude of giving our complete selves to you, O God our Father especially in calling out to you as Jesus had taught us in his Lord’s prayer.
When we say “Our Father” in praying, may we submit ourselves to your Divine will and design, O God, so we may learn to set aside out own plans and agenda so we may experience fully you power and grace. Amen.
