Reflection for Wednesday October 8, Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time; Luke 11:1-4

Gospel: Luke 11:1-4
Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say:

Father, hallowed be your name, your Kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test.”

Reflection:
Have we asked Jesus to teach us to pray? This is one of the most powerful petitions that we could ever ask Jesus; to teach us how to pray. But do we pray regularly? When we pray we connect with Jesus and when we pray we allow Jesus to come to us and strengthen us.

Let us observe our feelings before and after praying, isn’t it that we feel good after we’ve prayed? The feelings of a person is different before and after prayer. Why is this so? This is the miracle of our prayer to Jesus, it heals us body and soul; it makes us accept the things that is hard for us to accept and it opens our body and soul to infinite graces from God.

Starting today let us begin our prayer with this humble petition for Jesus: Lord teach us to pray and then we solemnly recite the prayer (The Our Father) that Jesus taught us to pray. After praying the Our Father let us stay and speak to Jesus through our minds. And before ending our prayers let us also ask the Blessed Mother and our favorite saint/s to pray for us.

If exercise is for our bodies, our prayers are for our souls for it makes us have an active and healthy relationship with Jesus. Therefore the more we pray the more that we make healthy our souls and the more we pray the less worries we would have.

Prayer:
Lord teach us to pray, teach us how to properly pray the prayer that you’ve taught us.  Give us the grace of the Holy Spirit so that we could connect with you in our prayers. Give us the gift of spontaneous prayer dear Lord and give us the grace of focus and concentration when we pray. For there are times that our prayers comes only from our mouths and not from our hearts. Teach us how to pray O Lord. Amen. - Marino J. Dasmarinas
