Prayer Of The Day

The Lord is near to all who call upon him. Ps 145

Jesus, you are always near to us.Our hearts, however, are not always near to you.We are a jealous people, often seeking to be ahead of our brothers and sisters.In today’s gospel you teach us that it is better to be humble and give up our will to you.Those who place themselves first on this earth will be the last to enter heaven.We beg you in prayer to lead us to consider first our brothers and sisters, and only once their needs are met, seek to meet our own. Help us to remember to call on you, because you are always near. Amen.
