Genesis 17: 3-9

Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him,

“As for me, this is my covenant with you: You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations. No longer shall your name be Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.

I will establish my covenant between me and you, and your offspring after you throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you. And I will give to you, and to your offspring after you, the land where you are now an alien, all the land of Canaan, for a perpetual holding; and I will be their God.” God said to Abraham, “As for you, you shall keep my covenant, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations.

At the Right Time

Everyday I look up at the blue sky
and just wonder why
why, do I have to go through these things God?
I followed the sacraments and I read the bible
But I still don’t know where you’re leading me.

Will you come in if I open the door?
Will you answer my prayer and not hit ignore?
Yes or no?
Will my blessing come to me fast or slow?
How should I know?

When I talk to you how is it that you don’t make a sound?
But…I believe in you and you always come at the right time
Maybe that’s why I keep hoping because soon you might give me a sign.

When are times in your life where you have had to be patient? How has that challenged you and benefited you?

Prayer

Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me.
Christ within me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ in the heart of every one who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

—The Breastplate of St. Patrick
