“There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer….Prayer does not “change” God’s mind – It changes us!........Until we as a people once again “connect” with the source of all life, we will have no life within us drifting aimlessly from one thing to the next………When a society or an individual “disconnects” from the very source that created it, something profoundly breaks……We are either in the process of resisting God's truth or in the process of being shaped and molded by his truth…..Time spent in prayer is never wasted.”

Gospel Text: (Lk 10:38-42)

Jesus entered a village 
where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.
She had a sister named Mary
who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. 
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said,
“Lord, do you not care
that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? 
Tell her to help me.” 
The Lord said to her in reply,
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. 
There is need of only one thing. 
Mary has chosen the better part
and it will not be taken from her.”


Reflect, today, upon that which is most important in life. Dispel excuses and temptations to simply fulfill all the other important duties of life, neglecting that which is most important – God! Commit yourself to remain at the feet of Jesus, adoring Him, listening to Him and loving Him. If you do, you will find that your life is more ordered and that the time you spend in prayer bears more good fruit than every other important duty you fulfill every day.
