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 know that I am capable of so much more than what I have been putting out into the world. Sometimes I can be incredibly lethargic, uncaring and self-centered and then choose not to pursue all that I am capable of being and all that You created me to be. Help me to snap out of it when I fall into these old patterns of thought. My desire is to serve You and do all things that glorify Your Name. Your Son Jesus said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father." Father, I believe the Words that Jesus spoke and I believe that I AM capable of great works through You. I also realize that I could be right there, right there on the edge of selling my soul because of personal desires, ambition or materialism. Father, my daily meditation with You, at this very minute, is a deliberate action on my part to keep me in check, in order to realize and live my full capability and the personal mission that You created for me to 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 Luke
22 "The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised."
23 And He said to all, "If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
24 For whoever would save his life will lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake, he will save it.
25 For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?"
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
