Worth being awake


2 Peter 3:8-13

Question for reflection:
What awakens you to the wonder, joy and presence of God’s new life in this Holy Season? How are you witnessing the “special things” of God?

Prayer for the day:

God of new life, open our hearts and minds to your holy presence as we wait and watch for your new heaven and new earth. Make us ever alert and responsive to the cries of the poor, the oppressed, victims of violence, and all who long for your way of peace and righteousness.  In the name of the Prince of Peace, Jesus the Christ. Amen.

~ Mary Jo Flory-Steury, Associate General Secretary
