Jesus…Wake Up!

I ran across this beautiful prayer and I thought I should post it for all to see. We’ve all had that experience when everything around us looks dark. Some of you may be going through it now. Even though we go through difficult times in life, it’s important to remember that the Lord is right there with us. In the same way that the Apostles woke Him while He slept in the storm-tossed boat (Mt 8:23-27, Mk 4:35-41, Lk 8:22-25), we should never hesitate to call upon Him when we are lonely, troubled or afraid. Ask Him to fill your heart with His peace and to help you carry your cross. Receive Him in the Eucharist and listen to Him speak through the Bible. It won’t be long before you start to feel His peace…even in the midst of the storm!

O Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence, Your love and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust in Your protecting love and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You, we shall see Your hand, Your purpose,
Your will through all things.

(St Ignatius of Loyola)
