Thursday of the Seventh Week of Easter - 2013

Zephaniah 3:17: The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, we pray that when the storms of life rage against us, we will remember these words and find refuge, comfort and peace in your sheltering care. Make us aware, O God, of your singing in our life as you make your salvation more clearly to us each day. Through our Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus’ prayer on the eve of his sacrifice shows the immense love and trust he had for his beloved disciples. He knew they would desert him in his hour of trial, yet he entrusted to them the great task of dispersal his name throughout the world and to the end of the ages. The Lord Jesus assign us today with the same mission - to make him known and loved by all. Jesus died and rose again that all strength be one as he and the Father are one. Do we love and accept all baptized Christians as your brothers and sisters in Christ? Heavenly Father, have mercy on all your people and heal the separations in the body of Jesus. May all Christian people throughout the world attain the harmony for which Jesus prayed on the eve of his sacrifice. Renew in us the power of the Spirit that we may be a sign of that harmony and a means of its growth. Increase in us a fervent love for all our brothers and sisters in Jesus.
