Lord, I long to spend more time with You. The noise, unrest, and busy-ness around me urges and deepens my desire for quiet time with You.
Thank you heavenly Father for all the ways You bless me each day. Today, on the feast of St. John Paul II, I ask that you especially bless me as a woman. I believe that I am an important part of Your plan and that you have chosen me to be here now. Bless my mission, that I may contribute to the Kingdom of Heaven today, through my interactions with those in my workplace, my neighborhood, and especially in my home.
Lord, make my life a mission of love. A mission of making Your love and mercy known to all through the way I relate, speak, and even think. Purify my heart that I may be an ever more worthy dwelling for Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
St. John Paul II, pray for us!
