Take my hands and feet, my heart and mind, Lord;
Make what use of them You will.
I am but a lowly channel for Your Divine power;
Manifest that power in whatever way You deem best.
Make me a conscious part of Your radiant Being
And may I have no life separate from Your Life.
| Touch me, O Lord, and fill me with your light and your hope.|
Dear God, please give me strength when I am weak,
love when I feel forsaken,
courage when I am afraid,
wisdom when I feel foolish,
comfort when I am alone,
hope when I feel rejected,
and peace when I am in turmoil.
|Blessèd are you, Sovereign God, creator of all; To you be glory and praise for ever! As we rejoice in the gift of the Word made flesh, let the light of your love always shine in our hearts and your praises ever be on our lips, Father, Son and Holy Spirit: Blessèd be God for ever!|
The Sign of Jonah
29 As the crowds increased, Jesus said, “This is a wicked generation. It asks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah. 30 For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also will the Son of Man be to this generation. 31 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon’s wisdom; and now something greater than Solomon is here. 32 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and now something greater than Jonah is here.
