Prayer and Devotion

Friday Prayer -Father CK

Dear Lord, I come to you not satisfied with staying average, not satisfied with just the traditional, not satisfied with the way it has always been. I press into you that I may come up higher. I am open to you. I want to experience your new things in your perfect timing. I pick up confidence that I will more clearly hear your voice and understand how to follow you. I pick up confidence that you are going to lead me away from sickness and weakness and lead me toward health and healing. declare that this day, I will walk the paths of peace of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Amen


Friday Devotion – Father CK


FRIDAY AFTERNOON PRAYER
Heavenly Father, in these days of illness, stress,
depression and distress,
Give us patience, understanding, and strength.
Bring healing and peace to us.
Renew our minds and bodies, so that,
restored, we may serve you faithfully.
Fill our lives with your healing presence.
Share your power with us so that we may live each
new day
by the strength only you can give.
Open our hearts and minds to the way of peace,
we ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.


Gospel Reflection

First readingActs 18:9-18 

‘I have many people on my side in this city’

At Corinth one night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision, ‘Do not be afraid to speak out, nor allow yourself to be silenced: I am with you. I have so many people on my side in this city that no one will even attempt to hurt you.’ So Paul stayed there preaching the word of God among them for eighteen months.

  But, while Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews made a concerted attack on Paul and brought him before the tribunal. ‘We accuse this man’ they said ‘of persuading people to worship God in a way that breaks the Law.’ Before Paul could open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, ‘Listen, you Jews. If this were a misdemeanour or a crime, I would not hesitate to attend to you; but if it is only quibbles about words and names, and about your own Law, then you must deal with it yourselves – I have no intention of making legal decisions about things like that.’ Then he sent them out of the court, and at once they all turned on Sosthenes, the synagogue president, and beat him in front of the court house. Gallio refused to take any notice at all.

  After staying on for some time, Paul took leave of the brothers and sailed for Syria, accompanied by Priscilla and Aquila. At Cenchreae he had his hair cut off, because of a vow he had made.


Responsorial Psalm
Psalm 46(47):2-7 

God is king of all the earth.

All peoples, clap your hands,

  cry to God with shouts of joy!

For the Lord, the Most High, we must fear,

  great king over all the earth.

God is king of all the earth.

He subdues peoples under us

  and nations under our feet.

Our inheritance, our glory, is from him,

  given to Jacob out of love.

God is king of all the earth.

God goes up with shouts of joy;

  the Lord goes up with trumpet blast.

Sing praise for God, sing praise,

  sing praise to our king, sing praise.

God is king of all the earth.


Gospel AcclamationJn14:26

Alleluia, alleluia!

The Holy Spirit will teach you everything

and remind you of all I have said to you.

Alleluia!


GospelJohn 16:20-23 

Your hearts will be full of joy that no-one will take from you

Jesus said to his disciples:

‘I tell you most solemnly,

you will be weeping and wailing

while the world will rejoice;

you will be sorrowful,

but your sorrow will turn to joy.

A woman in childbirth suffers,

because her time has come;

but when she has given birth to the child she forgets the suffering

in her joy that a man has been born into the world.

So it is with you: you are sad now,

but I shall see you again, and your hearts will be full of joy,

and that joy no one shall take from you.

When that day comes,

you will not ask me any questions.’

The Word Of God.
