For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, I realize that it is up to me to make certain that I remain fully connected to You, just as closely and tightly as I was, when I was still only spirit without the form of a physical body. The scripture today reminds me that You are always, always, always seeking me and calling me back to Yourself. You are always watching out for me just as any parent would always seek out their child and want to know where they are and what they are doing. You always want me close to You, safe and secure. Always! I Love knowing that You want me, close to you, always and forever, no matter what. It is through the way of Jesus and His soul food that my spirit follows straight back to You. Jesus is 'the Sign' or 'Example' that says, "Go this way" or "Do it like this." The food I really need to ingest and assimilate is Your Word made known through Jesus, who IS the Sustenance of Life. Talk about eating words! Absorbing and integrating His words is up to me and I understand that I do need to slow down my energy and savor His words and let Him quench my thirst for spiritual connections. The depth and wisdom of His words are so profound when I really tune-in. If there are any words to be eaten at any time in my Life, I would rather be eating the Word of You and not my own words. Jesus was motivated to influence others with Your Word and I am motivated to follow His Example. Thank You for this wonderful awareness today of how I am influenced and how I in turn can influence others.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John
[Jesus said to them . . . ]
44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets: 'They shall all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to My Father and learns from Him comes to Me.
46 Not that anyone has seen the Father except The One who is from God; He has seen the Father.
47 Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal Life.
48 I AM the bread of Life.
49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died;
50 this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die.
51 I AM the Living Bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the Life of the world."
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
