MY PEACE SHALL BE LIKE A RIVER AND MY NAME SHALL NEVER BE CUT OFF FROM BEFORE THE LORD
?Isa 48:17-19; Ps 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6 (R. John 8:12); Matt 11:16-19
?MY PEACE SHALL BE LIKE A RIVER AND MY NAME SHALL NEVER BE CUT OFF FROM BEFORE THE LORD (see Isa 48:18-19)
Amen! That is my prayer today and also wish that you join me in saying on this day of great joy for me.?
It is my birthday, a day I always want to celebrate my mother in a special way and thank God for saving her life some years ago as she was giving birth to me. Kindly join me in praying for her that God may increase in her, the joys of motherhood.???
Pray for me also that I might receive more strength and zeal from God to carry the Good news of salvation to all who are distressed and in danger of perishing in sin. May I also not lose my own soul in the end. Amen.?
Coming to the presence of the Lord yields a much desired positive transformation. The prophet Isaiah informs us today that it would earn us peace, righteousness and every good thing, including having our names in his book of life (cf. Isa 48:17-19).??
I want to have those good things and remain in the presence of the Lord. I know that you too wish that you could have such. Why not! May it be so for us through Christ our Lord. Amen.?
However, we must not emulate the ways of the hypocrites (see Matt 11:16-19). Do your best to follow God faithfully, and you will have the light of life (cf. John 8:12).???
May the light and peace from God continue to dwell with us to lead us and keep us in his presence at all times. Amen.?
Kindly pray also for my cousin, Sr Christiana Ezeihejiafor DMMM, my classmates, Rev. Frs. Cyril Basikoro and Edwin Ezeokeke and Mr. Chimezie Umeugochukwu, and Miss Sangowawa Orindamola, who also celebrate their birthday today.?
Have a great day ahead. It is well with you.?
