As you begin your prayer, pause for a few moments. Remove yourself from the cares of the day. Rest in the love of God.
Matthew 9:35 Jesus went around to all the towns and villages.
Once Jesus left home, it seems he traveled constantly. But it was purposeful movement: teaching, proclaiming, and curing. Acts of teaching and proclaiming the Gospel often require leaving home, even if it’s just to the local sanctuary. In every corner of the world, people are spreading the Gospel. God’s word is on the move. May our hearts be moved, as Christ’s was, by the sight of others in need.
How am I called to lift up Christ inside and outside of the comfort of my own home?
Christ, allow me to spread your word through selfless acts of kindness, service, and prayer.
