Hands open and ready

Let us pray that God will help us to love one another.

Lord, our help and guide, make your love the foundation of our lives.

May our love for you express itself in our eagerrness to do good for others.

We may be unfaithful, but He is always faithful. Second Reading

Your words are spirit, Lord, and they are life; you have the message of eternal life. Gospel Acclamation

... those who seek the Lord, lack no blessing.  Communion Antiphon

Here is a saying that you can rely on: if we have died with him, then we shall live with him.  1 Timothy 2:11

I allow myself to become still. I slowly read the text and then give myself time to reflect on God’s love for me as I am now. 
Consciously aware of God’s Spirit praying within me, I ponder this prayer again. 
Are my thoughts and feelings influenced by this prayer? Maybe questions such as these arise in my mind:  

  • How can I allow the Lord to be my help and guide? 
  • How can I make his love the foundation of my life? 

I allow the Holy Spirit to touch and challenge me.  
Slowly and with quiet confidence I ask for what I need to ‘do good for others’ in my life this week. 

'Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.’
