Forgetting that our mission as disciples is linked with Christ’s presence has plagued Christ’s followers since the beginning. It’s still a temptation that yields bitter fruit.
My prayer response:
O Christ of New Life, help me to remember that you are with me always. Help me to re-member it with all of my body, I pray.
Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20
Invitation to prayer:
What prayers are emerging from your heart, mind, and body? Pray them now. Let them lead you where you need to go.
