Dt 6:4-13/Mt 17:14-20 (412)
Many who plead for mercy from God and healing from Jesus do so on behalf of another. Often a parent pleads for a child. Who could say no to a mother or father who cries out for offspring in need? God knows this well, because everything comes from God.
O Holy Spirit, help me to cry out on behalf of those around me who need You. May I place the needs of others above my own. In doing so, may I celebrate what it means to be loved by You.
