Daily Prayers by Brother Matthew


Wednesday, 19 June 2024

Faithful God, you know how we are troubled by the injustice in the world and above all by the suffering of innocent people. But you are always on their side. We hear Jesus say to us: "Happy are those who are hungry and thirsty for justice - they will be satisfied." Rekindle in us always this desire for your justice.

Eternal God, you see us and you know us. Far from making us afraid, your way of looking is gentle and kind. You want to set us free from all that keeps us far from you, from ourselves, and from others. From the depths of our heart we dare say to you: "My heart is with you."

It is such a great mystery, God of life, that you want to come to us at the point where we are, and that through your Christ you journey together with us. Give us the simplicity to open our hearts, and to tell you our worries, but above all our gratitude for what you are for us. And then our prayer becomes a song of praise for your love.
