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 know that 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 and then I choose not to pursue all that I am capable of being; all that You created me to be. Help me to snap out of it when I fall into these old patterns of thought. My desire is to serve You and do all things that glorify Your Name. Your Son Jesus said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father." Father, I believe the Words that Jesus spoke and I believe that I am capable of great works through You. Just like You did for Peter, help me to realize and live my full capability, so that I do the personal mission that You created me to do.
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 Luke
1 While the crowd was pressing in on Jesus and listening to the Word of God, He was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret.
2 He saw two boats there alongside the lake; the fishermen had disembarked and were washing their nets.
3 Getting into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, He asked him to put out a short distance from the shore. Then He sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.
4 After He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, "Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch."
5 Simon said in reply, "Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets."
6 When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing.
7 They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come to help them. They came and filled both boats so that they were in danger of sinking.
8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at the knees of Jesus and said, "Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man."
9 For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him and all those with him,
10 and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men."
11 When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed Him.
