MY 40 DAYS JOURNEY: DAY 2

Daily Reflection:  I need to take up my cross. If i love Jesus i need to embrace my cross. I am called to die to what is secure and familiar.  I am called to die to what is narrow and selfish.  I am called to die to the tiny, false life of self preoccupation and self preservation. It will definitely be not easy but His grace will be sufficient!

The Readings
Deuteronomy 30:15-20; Psalm 1:1-2, 3, 4, 6; Luke 9:22-25

The Journey Begins
There are so many lessons for our journey in this prayer.
 
It starts with God’s inspiration.
 
We are reminded of the breath of life that God breathed at the beginning of creation
 
and the driving wind of the Holy Spirit’s coming at Pentecost.
 
The grace for all we are about to do comes from God.
 
Today we pray to be open to it.
 
Today we also acknowledge that for us to what we need to do these six weeks,
 
we need God’s continuing help.
 
Each day, with every prayer, every sacrifice, every act of generosity
 
we will need help which can only come from God.
 
And, finally, we need God’s guidance to persevere to the end.
 
There will be tough choices, not only between good and evil,
 
but choices about what is the greater good.
 
We may even be called to do something quite heroic and self-sacrificing.
 
A wonderful prayer.  Easy to remember, even memorize.
 
It is possible to say it every day.
