Weekly Prayer - Prayer for the Season

God, You are the source of all life.
You created me and formed me in my mother’s womb.
(Psalm 139)

You gave Your only Son Jesus so that I may
have live, and have it to the full.
(John 10:10)

You shaped me and blew the breath of life
into me and made me become a living being.
(Genesis 2:7)

My pride and selfishness makes me think I am God,
and this blinds me to think that I live for myself.
Your servant St. Paul reminds me that while I live,
I live for You, God, and if I die, I am Yours.
(Romans 14:8)

Facing the music of life that it offers,
the challenges at times makes me “cut out”
myself from the very source of life.
I am like the branch that cuts out from the true vine.
(John 15:5)

When I am not connected to the source of life or the true vine,
I really feel empty, and it makes me think
that life is not worth living.
The source of life fills me with all the blessings and graces I need.

Restore me that I may be one with You.
You are my life.
