For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, I am capable of so much more than the energy that I have been putting out into the world. Sometimes I can be incredibly lethargic, uncaring and self-centered. Sometimes I choose not to pursue all that I am capable of being and all that You created me to be. Often times, I just throw in the towel and choose self-pity and martyrdom simply because something seems too hard. I know if it were easy then everyone would do it. I also know that there is a reason why some things need to challenging in order to serve me or someone else down the road. Father, help me to snap out of it when I fall into these pitiful patterns of thought because these types of thought will surely keep me from my purpose. My desire is to serve You and do all things that glorify Your Name, not my own. I believe that I am capable of great works through You. Besides, what parent would not want the best and most for their child? As my Father, I know You only want what is best for me and what You purposed for me. I also know, that You know, I can do it! Help me to realize and live my full capability and the personal mission that You created for me to fulfill.
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark
24 From that place He went off to the district of Tyre. He entered a house and wanted no one to know about it, but He could not escape notice.
25 Soon a woman whose daughter had an unclean spirit heard about Him. She came and fell at His feet.
26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophoenician by birth, and she begged Him to drive the demon out of her daughter.
27 He said to her, "Let the children be fed first. For it is not right to take the food of the children and throw it to the dogs."
28 She replied and said to Him, "Lord, even the dogs under the table eat the children's scraps."
29 Then He said to her, "For saying this, you may go. The demon has gone out of your daughter."
30 When the woman went home, she found the child lying in bed and the demon gone.
