Prayer for the Day:
O eternal God, often we have not seriously taken your promise to dwell within our hearts and be with us in every facet of our lives. God, you deliver us from our devices that hold us captive to experience healing and love. We are God’s temple even while under construction. Faithful God, you furnish the material for our growth. With your ever-present Spirit extend our ministry beyond what our eyes see and our hearts may embrace. Amen.
Question for reflection:
What implication(s) does it have for me that I am a part of God’s sacred temple and have received a gift of the Spirit?
