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, today's reading below immediately had me questioning how well I follow Your instructions when I know that You are guiding my direction, swaying my decisions and providing me answers to dilemmas. I know that my intuition is when You are speaking to me, yet I have no clue as to why sometimes I do not listen to You. This is something that I need to look at to see if it is my ego, stubbornness, fear or something else that makes me pull this way when You are pointing me that way. Thank You for this awareness today that when I hear direction from You, especially in the form of a command that says, "Go . . " or "Do . . . " that I need to go or do just as Jesus said to His apostles. When Jesus said, "Go . . . " that is exactly what He meant, that is what the apostles did. From now on when You speak to me, I will listen and 'go' or 'do'.
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 Mark
15 He said to them, "Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.
16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.
17 These signs will accompany those who believe: in My Name they will drive out demons, they will speak new languages.
18 They will pick up serpents (with their hands), and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not harm them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
