Today’s Consuming Fire
Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s
of John Vianney
Faith that Never Gives Up
“Your living faith in Me keeps your soul in a continual freshness and makes you ready to receive abundant graces. Hence, My little one, do not serve anyone but Me.” (Jesus) (August 1, 1963)
Today’s Readings: She said, “Please, Lord, for even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the table of their masters.” Then Jesus said to her in reply, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed from that hour. (Matthew 15)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, sometimes it seems that we pray and we plead and You do not hear. It would be so easy if we were in the Canaanite woman’s place to give up, get mad, think You don’t love us and move on. But Lord it is precisely when we feel You are not listening that we have to dig in and keep praying and pleading. Because it was this woman’s faith, love, and humility and no pun intended dogged persistence that moved Your Heart. Lord may we come boldly to the throne of Grace and never give up- let us come to You with living faith always no matter how it may seem. Let us ask, seek, and keep knocking especially for those we love!
