Watching and Praying

Reading: Matthew 26:41

“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.  The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”

Lord, thank you for your Holy Spirit who helps me to pray.  I also pray for your Spirit of discernment.  Open my eyes, my ears, my mind and my heart, Lord, and my mouth only as guided by You.  Help me to keep watch and make sense of what’s happening in the world, my locality, the needs of the people that you place in my path.  Give me the strength and the grace to carry out what You would have me do in this time and place.  Amen.
