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 read Your Word and my spirit receives it gratefully and gracefully. From this moment forward, I consciously choose to act upon Your Word to do Good for myself and others out of respect and praise to You. I am fully aware that I should follow You and Your Word even when it is challenging or unpopular. I must stand strong and dust my feet and walk away when it is necessary. As one of Your many children, my only concern is that I please You before pleasing anyone else's mind, judgment or belief system.
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
40 When they heard these words, some of the people said, "This is really the prophet."
41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "Is the Christ to come from Galilee?
42 Has not the scripture said that the Christ is descended from David, and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David was?"
43 So there was a division among the people over Him.
44 Some of them wanted to arrest Him, but no one laid hands on Him.
45 The officers then went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why did you not bring Him?"
46 The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this Man!"
47 The Pharisees answered them, "Are you led astray, you also?
48 Have any of the authorities or of the Pharisees believed in Him?
49 But this crowd, who do not know the law, are accursed."
50 Nicode'mus, who had gone to Him before, and who was one of them, said to them,
51 "Does our law judge a man without first giving him a hearing and learning what he does?"
52 They replied, "Are you from Galilee too? Search and you will see that no prophet is to rise from Galilee."
53 They went each to his own house,
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
