A Bruised Reed

“Ask often and ask for much with respect to intentions and needs and you will receive accordingly. Even more, if I perceive your trust, I will fulfill your request repeatedly. “ (Jesus) (August 6, 1963)

Today’s Readings: A bruised reed he will not break ,a smoldering wick he will not quench, until he brings justice to victory. And in his name the Gentiles will hope.(Matthew 12)

Prayer Mediation- Lord, we are all bruised reeds- broken, wounded, so often afraid to ask You for what we really need. And yet You invite us to ask and it will be given to us, seek and we will find, knock and the door will be opened to us (Matthew 7). Lord, You are not an angry God waiting for us to mess up even more but a loving Father who looks on us with compassion and tenderness ready to bring us to the victory of a life lived in You. Let us come to You with humble trust knowing that You hear our prayers and You will answer.
