MEDITATION:

Written by Lianna Davis, a contemporary author.

God calls us to walk in good relationships with others as believers, as far as it is up to us. And through the paradigm of relationship is one way we can think about righteousness — righteousness as always treating the other rightly, full of love and truth. Now, viewing righteousness in a relational way deeply honors God. For our faith in Him is all about a righteousness before Him. First and foremost, we want a righteous relationship with God Himself. We know that is only possible through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross. He forgives our sins and our transgressions of His holy ways for us. We can live before Him “in the right” because He has been poured out as a drink offering for us.

PRAYER:

Written by John Vetri, a contemporary Jesuit and author.

O God,

I find myself at the beginning of another day.

I do not know what it will bring.

Please help me to be ready for whatever it may be.

If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely.

If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly.

If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently.

If I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.

I pray just for today, for these twenty-four hours,

for the ability to cooperate with others according to the way Jesus taught us to live.

“Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

May these words that he taught us become more than words.

Please free my thinking and feelings and the thinking and feelings of others,

from all forms of self-will, self-centeredness, dishonesty, and deception.

Along with my brothers and sisters,

I need this freedom to make my choices today according to your desires.

Send your Spirit to inspire me in time of doubt and indecision so that, together, we can walk along your path.
