Friday of 4th Week of Easter, 12 May – John 14:1-6 ~ my Father’s home

Friday of the Fourth Week of Easter

+ In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen!

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, your Son Jesus Christ is the way that leads to you and to one another, the truth that is good news of love and hope, and the life which he sacrificed to give it.

Help us to show the way to him and to go his way to one another, to speak the truth that is encouraging and credible, and to give life by sharing happiness, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Reading: John 14:1-6 (NLT)

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.”

“No, we don’t know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

Reflection & Prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ: in this evil age of conflict and uncertainty, speak to us a word of peace and encouragement.

+ Pacify our troubled hearts that we may love and serve all believers as members of our family in faith.
+ Thank you for preparing a place for us in our Father’s home where we can live together with you forever.
+ Give us patient endurance while we wait confidently for your return; even so, Lord, come quickly.
+ Sustain us with your Spirit that our lives may reflect your presence and bear credible witness to your Way to the Father.

Lord Jesus Christ: you are the Way, the Truth, and the Life – the only way by which we come to the Father. Secure us in our faith and support us in our trust that we may live with you forever in our Father’s house. For your name’s sake, we ask it. Amen.
