My house will be called a "House of Prayer"

Prayer for June 17, 2019

Jesus said to his disciples: "You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. But I say to you, offer no resistance to one who is evil. When someone strikes you on your right cheek, turn the other one to him as well." - Matthew 5:38-39
Lord, that is a very tall order. It takes courage, strength and humility to understand, forgive and not strike back when we are hurt, insulted or mistreated. Give us the grace to be able to do so that we may be worthy to be called true Christians - in name, in spirit and in deed. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen
