Wednesday of 6th Week of Easter, 24 May – John 16:12-15 ~ God’s Spokesperson

Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter

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

Opening Prayer

Lord God, Heavenly Father, you are not far away from me, for in you I live and move and exist and you live in me through your Holy Spirit. Be indeed with me, Lord, send me your Holy Spirit of truth and through him deepen my understanding of the life and teaching of your Son, that I may accept the full truth and live by it consistently. I ask this through Christ my Lord.

Reading: John 16:12-15 (NLT)

“There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can’t bear it now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring me glory by telling you whatever he receives from me. All that belongs to the Father is mine; this is why I said, ‘The Spirit will tell you whatever he receives from me.’

Reflection & Prayer:

Heavenly Father: Thank you for your kindness and gentleness to me; you give me what I need when I need it, but you don’t overwhelm me with more than I can handle at the time. You have been a good Father to me.

Continue the work of transformation in me that Jesus began through his Word and Spirit. The more I learn about you, the more I realize I have so much more to learn – it’s a life-long process as the ages and stages of my life unfold and I encounter challenges and opportunities that I’ve never dealt with before.

Speak to me again today; apply your Word to my life experience; show me what you would have me say and do; and give me the courage and strength to put my faith to work. Through Jesus my Lord – the Way, the Truth, and the Life – who lives with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Concluding Prayer – Psalm 148:13-14 (NLT)

Let them all praise the name of the Lord. For his name is very great; his glory towers over the earth and heaven! He has made his people strong, honoring his faithful ones—the people of Israel who are close to him.

Praise the Lord!

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