Monday of the second week of Advent
God of Strength,
I need your courage.
You offer to make firm the knees that are weak.
Only you know how frightened I so often am.
And you do offer me strength.
There is the promise of your Son’s coming
and knowing that you will save me.
I can’t do this on my own
no matter how often I think I can.
Give me the humility to ask for your help
and open heart to accept
your healing and love in my life.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.

In today’s Gospel we hear Jesus challenge the Pharisees by asking “What are you thinking in your heart’s?”. How often would Jesus say the same to us because of our thoughts or actions?
