Reflection for Wednesday October 5, 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:
Do you often invoke the name of our Holy God? For example somebody is sick in the family, do you pray over that family member by invoking the very powerful name God or Jesus? The name of God is very powerful it can cure us of our many sickness if we would pray it with faith.

When one of Jesus’ disciples asked Him to teach him how to pray Jesus told the man first that the name of God is holy. Being holy it’s therefore sacred and powerful and this we can always call upon whenever we want.

What should we do so that we can always call upon this holy and powerful God? We should strive to live holy lives as well and we should strive to know more about God. The moment we try to live holy lives and the moment we strive to know more about God through Jesus. We surely could invoke His mighty name anytime.

You therefore have to run away from anything that would make you sin for this is the beginning of holiness. You also have to strive to know more about God and Jesus by reading your bible and by making yourself available for Holy Mass.

Try doing these two and you will see that you would be able easily call upon the name of our Holy God anytime most especially during distressful times. -  Marino J. Dasmarinas
