DAY 38

 

READ

The Lord is my light and my salvation. Who shall frighten me? The Lord is the defender of my life. Who shall make me tremble? Psalm 26:1-2

 

REFLECT

If our faith in God were just a little bit stronger, we too would be stronger. We would be like anchors and safe harbors in a storm. We would be bright lights and sources of hope for people lost in darkness and confusion. And that is what God is teaching us to be every time we pray, because even the smallest prayer exercises our faith and makes it grow. How strong is my faith? What has strengthened it or weakened it in the past? What can I do to keep strengthening it, a little bit more every day? Reread the verse, slowly; maybe even out loud: let your mind and heart drink in the power of those inspired words.

A Prayer for Pilgrims

Where can I go when the night is dark and I stumble along the way?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, whose light turns the night into day.
Where can I go when my heart is low and my spirit wounded with pain?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, to the God who gives joy to my youth!
Where can I go when my heart is full, overflowing with thanks and praise?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, whose peace is the joy of my days.
Where can I go when my heart is healed and mended with comfort and love?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, whose grace gives me strength from above.
Where can I go when my heart is at peace and filled with the spirit of truth?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, to the God who gives joy to my youth!
Where can I go to give of myself in return for all I’ve received?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, who calls me to serve those in need.
Where can I go to pour out myself as God’s love is poured out for all?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, whose love bids me to answer the call.
Where can I go for life worth the living, for love strong in word, deed, and truth?
I will go up to the house of the Lord, my God, to the God who gives joy to my youth!
