May the word of the Lord fill you with love and bring you peace.

Sts. Simon and Jude

Jesus went up to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. 

Before making decisions in His ministry, Jesus went off to pray to God. How often do you go off and pray before a big (or small) decision. Do you trust the Lord to lead you to in the right direction or do you think you can do better on your own? If Jesus needed to pray before making decisions, why do you think you do not?  

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to always remember to offer you problems, cares, concerns and needs before I decide what to do. You are the guiding light I need in my life and in Jesus’ holy name, I pray I never forget it. Amen. 

Their message goes out through all the earth.
