Thursday, June 14 -1King 18:41-46 - Ps 65:10-13
Elijah prayed seven times for something that was good,
something that was promised: the rain necessary to end
a famine of 3-1/2 years. It took more than one prayer
Sometimes we must persevere in prayer. The need for
persistence in prayer is for our good. It teaches us to go
to God spontaneously and regularly. So pray with
persistance and perseverance.
Friday, June 15 - 1Kings 19:9, 11-16
Ps 27:7-9, 13-14 - Matthew 5:27-32
The Lord often whispers, as He did to the prophet
Elijah. He is gentle. He will not cry out, nor will His
voice be heard in the streets. Often the Lord
seemingly "hides" for example, in the Tabernacle
or in the Eucharist. Can you still and quiet your
soul in oder to hear His whispers and silence?

Sunday, June 17, Ez 17:22-24 - 2Cor 5:6-10
Ps 92:2-3, 13-16 - Mark 4:26-34 - Happy Father's Day
The father's blessing seems especially important,
particularly in the present age when, according to study,
over 37% of the children in the USA live apart from
their fathers. Think of a blessing as the tender, healing
voice of Your Heavenly Father (Who often uses human
voices to express His intentions.) Some of the definitions
of a blessing include: approval, encouragement, welfare,
benediction, praise, pardon. To bless a person is to say,
"I see God's goodness in you." the Lord encourages us to
beleive that a word spoken in His Name really means
something, and does something. (Is 55:10-11 "My Word that
goes out of My Mouth will not return to Me empty, but
will accomplish the purpose for which I sent it."
In Your Most Holy and Divine Will and in the name of all
we pray: "Heavenly Father, we ask for a special anointing for
the father-figure. Release Your love and Your healing Power
thru his word. If he needs healing in his fathering and in his own
father-wounds, allow that healing to begin now. Holy Spirit
anoint him in his inmost being. Heavenly Father, may he speak
about Your Fatherly Love to his children." Amen
Monday, June 18 - 1King 21-1-16 -Ps 5:2-7, Matt 5:38-42
God is calling us thru our consciences to obey Him and desobey
any govenmental authority which is opposed to the teaching of
Christ and His Church.
