Daily Meditation – The Priority of Prayer

[Consider and visualize making prayer a daily priority.  Paul wrote to Timothy with the specific guidance of – “First of all.”]

First of all, then, I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone, for kings and for all in authority, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all devotion and dignity. This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.

- 1 Timothy 2: 1-4

Daily Meditation - Surrendering to God's Will

[Consider the following prayer from St. Ignatius as taken from the Spiritual Exercises]

Take, Lord, and Receive
 
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will.
All I have and call my own.
Whatever I have or hold, you have given me.
I return it all to you and surrender it wholly to be governed by your will.
Give me only your love and your grace and I am rich enough and ask for nothing more.

Daily Meditation – Prayer with Unwavering Faith

[Consider unhesitating faith which depends on “singleness” of mind and purpose]

When he was going back to the city in the morning, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went over to it, but found nothing on it except leaves. And he said to it, "May no fruit ever come from you again." And immediately the fig tree withered. When the disciples saw this, they were amazed and said, "How was it that the fig tree withered immediately?" Jesus said to them in reply, "Amen, I say to you, if you have faith and do not waver, not only will you do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' it will be done. Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive."

- Matthew 21: 18-22

Daily Meditation - Finding God

Of course we cannot bring about an experience of God through our own efforts. Such can only be given to us. It is sheer gift. But when we wait with open hands and undefended heart, God DOES come. We do experience God's presence. We have God's word on it.

"When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, you will find Me with you, says the Lord" (Jer 29:13-14).
