Readings of the day:
God would always save his own, if not at the instant, his time is never too late. We who bear the mark of his spirit can never be deserted, a steadfast spirit in prayer is all that is needed from us. Whatever may tend to keep us in bonds can never break down the spirit in us. With the Apostles Paul and Silas, they were held in chains, but this couldn’t stop them from singing and praying. What a witnesses they were for Christ in the midst of their struggles, which lead to the conversion of those around them.
In the midst of our struggles and concerns, let us serve as holy witness to God; immersed in praying and singing, even if our heart is burdened, our lips swollen and our palms in thorns, for God who sees us and knows all, in our unfailingly spirit in him would carve a way as he did the apostles.
May we in the end exclaim like the Psalmist, “with your right hand you save me, O Lord. I thank you, Lord, with all my heart; you have heard the words of my mouth”.
May God grant us an unfailing heart, we pray.
Peace and Love of Christ.
