A Generous Father

Today Jesus gives us some comforting words about the love God the Father has for his children. "Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find," is a beautiful promise I can cling to when I'm worried, anxious, or feeling lost. Loving parents give their children what is good, healthy, and appropriate for them. Jesus reassures us that our Father in heaven will always provide for us too. God shows his love for us in many different ways, but especially through the Holy Spirit who sets our hearts on fire with love for God and for those in need. What is one simple thing I can ask the Lord today? Do I trust that God will show me what to do? How do I see his generous, loving heart revealed in other people? How have I reflected God's love to others lately? Am I hospitable, welcoming, generous, and forgiving? Maggie Melchior is a convert to the Catholic faith. She currently serves as Coordinator of New Evangelization and Faith Formation for a parish in the Diocese of Green Bay.

Prayer

"Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day. It is a choice based on the knowledge that we belong to God and have found in God our refuge and safety and that nothing, not even death, can take God away from us. Joy is the experience of knowing that you are unconditionally loved and that nothing--sickness, failure, emotional distress, oppression, war, or even death--can take that love away." Fr. Henri Nouwen, Dutch priest, author, and teacher: 1932-1996

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.
