|A Prayer Diary||
Jesus lived thirty-three years because He had to show what a normal man after God’s pattern was like. He died that through His death we might have to source of life that was in Him.
As we gain direct experience of our own power and divinity, se sense that others are similarly powerful, responsible and divinely capable.
O Though to whom I owe the gift of this day’s life, give to me also, I beseech Thee, the spirit to use if as I ought.
So we must receive the light of the newborn Savior by faith, in order to manifest it by our witness in common praise and by the works of our charity towards one another.
Grant me daily the grace of gratitude, to be thankful for all my many gifts, and so be freed from artificial needs, that I might lead a joyful, simple life.
Edward Hays quoted in www.gratefulness.org
Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people; to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.
