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.
The following prayer is by Emmett Fox
Today, I accept God's gift of abundance.
Today everything that I AM and have, that is Good,
I identify everything I do with success.
I think affirmatively.
And with all my prayers, I accept abundance.
Whatever I need, whenever I need it,
wherever I need it, for as long as I need it,
will always be at hand.
I no longer see negation
in my undertakings.
Rather, I claim that the action of the Living Spirit
prospers everything I do,
increases every Good I possess
and brings success to me and everyone I meet.
Everything I think about and do
is animated by the Divine Presence,
sustained by the Infinite Power,
and multiplied by the Divine Goodness.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
29 Moving on from there Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, went up on the mountain, and sat down there.
30 Great crowds came to Him, having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute, and many others. They placed them at His feet, and He cured them.
31 The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind able to see, and they glorified the God of Israel.
32 Jesus summoned His disciples and said, "My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, for they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, for fear they may collapse on the way."
33 The disciples said to Him, "Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place to satisfy such a crowd?"
34 Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do you have?" "Seven," they replied, "and a few fish."
35 He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground.
36 Then He took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.
37 They all ate and were satisfied. They picked up the fragments left over--seven baskets full.
