Hebrew 13: 15-17, 20-21

Through him, then, let us continually offer a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name. Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls and will give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with sighing—for that would be harmful to you.

Now may the God of peace, who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, make you complete in everything good so that you may do his will, working among us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

The Very Best

May the God of peace . . . through Jesus Christ do in us what pleases him. [Hebrews 13:21]

Shortly after Mikhail Baryshnikov defected from the Soviet Union, he performed at the Kennedy Center for two weeks. A critic wrote: “As the two weeks went by I realized something more amazing than the dancing. A young woman, Gelsey Kirkland, had been chosen by Baryshnikov to be his partner. She sparkled; she was radiant; she was full of life. And I realized that I was seeing the miracle of one person bringing out in another person her very best.” God wants to work this same miracle in us through God’s Son, Jesus.

What is there in Jesus that brings out the sparkle and the very best in me?

God be thanked for that good and perfect gift . . . His life, His love, His very self in Jesus Christ.

Prayer

Lord, throughout our lives you have revealed to us the pathway for being our best self. When we place before you all that we are and anticipate your active participation in our days, we discover opportunities that were hidden to us. Our spirit becomes one with your Spirit and though our life on the surface may be buffeted by the gale force winds, we are anchored to an abiding hope. Lord, in gratitude for our life, we pray that we will be a force for good, a person dedicated to helping others to be their very best self.

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
