Thursday 12th Ord I
A Pilgrim's Daily Prayer
Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit
from nothingness to union with the One who is the Beginning and the End
Carel Fabritius: Hagar and the Angel
Thursday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time: God Present to Us
Let us pray.
Father, in our apparently worst moments you are always with us to empower us through the Word with your life in the Holy Spirit. I say “apparently worse moments” because every moment is the saving moment. You, Father, through the Word, now made flesh in our Lord Jesus, are always with us at every moment from that first moment in the womb. Even when we reject you and turn away from you in sin, you are always God-with-us calling us to repentance and new life. In fact, Father, your constant presence to us is one of the defining elements of human existence.
