St. Peter Claver – Luke 6: 12-19
Before Jesus decides, he always prays. In doing so, he models discernment for his disciples. When make a choice, it is tempting to do so in haste. Sometimes circumstances seem to require a reaction rather than a response. Discernment makes a difference.
O Lord, grant me the patience to pray before acting. May I have the courage to ask for a moment and to discern your will in all that I say and do.
