30 Day Prayer Challenge - Day 5

*The 30 Day Prayer Challenge is hosted by Real Life Rosary.  During these 30 days we are using the book 4 Simple Steps to Better Meditations to dive deeper into reading the daily scriptures.  Please click any of links for more information.  Join our Facebook Group to stay up to date.

Step #1 - Clear the Mind.

No distractions this morning, thankfully!

Step #2 - Read the Scriptures

Today's readings can be found here.  The readings seemed to be blurry to me today.  I could only see one line no matter how many times I read the passages - "Unless your faith is firm you shall not be firm."

Step #3 - Join the Story

Although that line is the only one that that was clear to me it helped me understand the Gospel.  As I sat an listened to Jesus, the same message was loud and clear in the Gospel - Unless your faith is firm you shall not be firm.  

Step #4 - Talk/Listen to God

Dear God, I do believe, help my unbelief.  I want to be faithful, help me in my unfaithfulness.  Give me the eyes to see your wonderful works in my own day.  Help me to recognize the miracles before me each and every day.

Step #5 - Bonus Step - Thanksgiving

Dear Lord, thank you for this time of prayer and meditation.  Thank you for another day to know you, to love you, and to serve you.  Thank you for all of the people joining us during these 30 days.  Help us all to grow in our love for you and one another!  Give us the strength to to have a firm faith!

Today is Tuesday, I would encourage you to pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.  Here are the Sorrowful Mysteries of Addiction.
