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, You have a Divine Purpose and Design for everything. Your actions do not come back to You void, and neither shall Your Word. I trust Your Word and I trust Your Actions. Father, I know You made me on Purpose. This I am certain. There are no "oops babies" or babies who are "accidents". You made me on purpose because I am here on Purpose for You, to do Your Will. My desire is to please You, to follow You, and to do whatever it is that You Purposed me for. My mind is open, my heart is willing and my body is able. Ever Loving Father, I ask You to fill my spirit with Your Holy Spirit so that I may hear and see; do and speak what is pleasing to You.
Through Jesus Christ's Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face. ~Amen
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matthew 9:35--10:1, 6-8
35 Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness.
36 At the sight of the crowds, His heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd.
37 Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
38 so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest."
1 Then He summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure every disease and every illness.
6 Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 As you go, make this proclamation: 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'
8 Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons. Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give.
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
