About Today Readings

Colossians 2:6-15. Psalm 144(145):1-2, 8-11. Luke 6:12-19.

The Lord is compassionate to all his creatures – Psalm 144(145):1-2, 8-11.

Jesus spent the whole night in prayer.

When day came he picked out twelve and he called them apostles.

It’s not difficult, Lord, to guess what you talked about that night in prayer with your Father. You were preoccupied with a momentous decision—the choice you were making of a small group to whom you could entrust the continuation of the mission your Father had given you. You had a certain twelve in mind, and you were asking the Father to confirm your choice.

Lord, daily we face difficult decisions. Sometimes we can feel lost and confused. Often we seem to make the wrong choice. Can that be because we have relied too much on our own weak human efforts? You have shown us the need to bring our problems to you and your Father in persevering prayer.
