Acts 22:30, 23:6-11. Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope – Psalm 15(16):1-2, 5, 7-11. John 17:20-26.
‘You have loved them even as you have loved me.’
Today’s Gospel reading helps us realise what you want for us, Lord. Sometimes we can feel lonely and deserted, just as the disciples must have felt. All that is around us seems to say that we are alone, that your death was your end, that you changed nothing. Yet you pray for us to the Father. You show that you do care about our loneliness and sense of isolation. You want to involve us in the close, loving relationship you have with your Father.
Help us to open our hearts to you, to the love and companionship you offer. In letting your love work in us, we can come to know the Father, and so understand and love others.
Creator God, be the animating centre of our lives. Guide us towards Jesus and those in whom we will find his presence. Send forth your Holy Spirit into our hearts.Email this Print This Page
