Here I Am, Lord

Here I am, Lord, I come to do your will.  Psalm 40

It’s been a wonderful two weeks of feasting, but now it’s time to get back to fasting.

Tomorrow’s response to the psalm could be our daily inspiration.  Here I am, Lord. I come to do your will. 

How can we do God’s will?  A strong prayer and sacramental life is essential first, in knowing what God’s will is, and second, doing God’s will.

In this way, fasting is one of the most important spiritual tools for helping us to know and serve God.  Doing God’s will in our lives is not always easy.  Our tendency to sin makes us want to serve ourselves instead of God.  When we fast, we increase in virtue. Fasting invites the Holy Spirit in to heal our hearts and helps us to be selfless instead of selfish. Fasting added to prayer takes our prayer to a whole new level.

There’s no better example of doing God’s will than the Blessed Mother, who readily said, “I am the handmaiden of the Lord.”

Today let’s fast and pray for all the community intentions, for a peace-filled 2018 and for all those who are suffering emotionally, spiritually or physically.

Holy Mary, pray for us!  Holy Spirit, teach us to pray!
