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 confess that I do need to increase my productivity and effectiveness. Not only can I do more, I am certainly capable of more. My desire is to make You the cornerstone of my Life deliberately, purposefully and Lovingly. I accept You as the foundation of all my thoughts, words, actions and reactions; thereby dictating my mind, my body and all of my business, personal and financial affairs, in turn increasing my productivity and effectiveness. I know if I truly count on You, I will have no doubts, worries or fears. From now on, I will get out of the way of Your Divine Intervention and give my Life over to You; thereby doing every Good thing You would have me do and receiving every Good thing You desire to give me.
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 Matthew
Matthew 21:33-43, 45-46
[Jesus said to them . . . ]
33 "Hear another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a wine press in it, and built a tower. Then he leased it to tenants and went on a journey.
34 When vintage time drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants to obtain his produce.
35 But the tenants seized the servants and one they beat, another they killed, and a third they stoned.
36 Again he sent other servants, more numerous than the first ones, but they treated them in the same way.
37 Finally, he sent his son to them, thinking, 'They will respect my son.'
38 But when the tenants saw the son, they said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and acquire his inheritance.'
39 They seized him, threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.
40 What will the owner of the vineyard do to those tenants when he comes?"
41 They answered Him, "He will put those wretched men to a wretched death and lease his vineyard to other tenants who will give him the produce at the proper times."
42 Jesus said to them, "Did you never read in the scriptures: 'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; by the Lord has this been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes'?
43 Therefore, I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people that will produce its fruit.
45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they knew that He was speaking about them.
46 And although they were attempting to arrest Him, they feared the crowds, for they regarded Him as a prophet.
