Daily Prayer & Reading December 4
December 4, 2018
Today, Lord I pray for healthy and strong relationships. I pray for families – that parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents and cousins alike can be united in love and faith. I pray for married couples – that they work together to do Your will. I pray for friendships – that the bond between friends will last a lifetime. I pray, Lord, that everyone has someone to turn to in times of need. Amen.
Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
“I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows who the Son is except the Father,
and who the Father is except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
Turning to the disciples in private he said,
“Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
For I say to you,
many prophets and kings desired to see what you see,
but did not see it,
and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”
