Prayer for the Twelfth Meeting

Twelfth Meeting

Lord Jesus, we come together to review and share the movements of your Spirit within us as we prayed your Beatitudes and reflected on the readiness of your disciples to answer your invitation:
“Follow me.” We ask you to be with us to guide our interpretations of your Word.
The guidelines you set before your disciples, which might be called Be-Attitudes, challenge us to become free of undesirable attachments; to trust in your all-encompassing love in times of sorrow; to be humble, just and merciful; and to seek as best we can to introduce an aura of peace into our world. Just as you gathered dedicated disciples who left their homes, families and livelihood in answer to your call, so do you desire that we be ever ready to say, “Here I am, Lord” when you speak those same words to us in the silence of our hearts.
Please send your Spirit to be with us that we may be aware of the graces you have bestowed on us; filled with gratitude for all the undeserved gifts we have received; and eager to receive new insights and direction from you over the coming week.
Please bless our families and keep them safe and well, Lord.
We thank you for loving us unconditionally and we pray that we may become the persons you are calling us to be. Amen.
