2 Corinthians 11:1-11, Psalm 111:1-4, 7-8, Matthew 6:7-15


2 Corinthians 11:1-11, Psalm 111:1-4, 7-8, 
Matthew 6:7-15

2 Corinthians 11:1-11

My Beloved we have been redeemed at too great a price for it all to be for naught. The Father will neither permit nor tolerate anyone who steals those who belong to You and You alone. We are grafted into Your Body. We are members of God's family. We are children of the Most High purchased at the cost of Your Most Precious Blood, and we have been promised in betrothal to You. Espoused to You, we are Yours. Grant to Your Church the wisdom to be like You in all things. Keep us humble and obedient, loving all as we love ourselves, and You above and before all.

The world belongs to You and we who are in the world belong to You.  Alleluia!

Psalm 111:1-4, 7-8

My Beloved, we give praise to God almighty, Your Father and ours, for all He has done for us through Your work of redemption. We thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit who enables us to live the Christian life with courage ad truth.  We thank You for giving us Your Memorial of Love which reminds us each day of Your saving work. You are merciful, loving and kind. We see Your awesome work everywhere but most especially in our own lives. Yes we rejoice because You are faithful, just and worthy of trust always.

Matthew 6:7-15

My Beloved, You are wonderful. Thank You for assuring us that our Father knows what we need even before we ask Him. Thank You for teaching us to pray. God our Father who created the heavens and the earth and who created us in love, deserves our praise, worship, honor and obedience always, seeking His will alone in all things. He who provides for us as He provides for all living things, desires that we forgive as we have been forgiven.  We ask for His mighty protection against the evil one who wants to strike us where we are weakest and most vulnerable and steal our inheritance.

Thank You for reminding us that our forgiveness is conditional and depends on our forgiving those who have anything against us. This is the Father's will so let us make haste and forgive all injuries quickly so that we may live in His love and in Your Presence all the days of our life.
