Bring all of us in this diocese to clarity about what we are seeking in life: Jesus, help us to seek you.
He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying, and remained with him that day (now it was about the tenth hour). (John 1:39)
Holy Spirit, please help us to make the choice to come and see what Jesus has for us.
A word received: Come, I AM calling you.
A word received at St. Ann's Amsterdam last night: Do not be afraid to do what I ask of you. I want to use each one of you here but you will never be alone because I am walking with each of you. I want to see joy well up in you. Follow me.
