Prayer for the Week (May 9-May 15, 2021)

Let us ask our heavenly Father that we put no boundaries to love and compassion:
God, you revealed divine love in all its depth when you sent your only Son into the world to confront and take away the sins of the world.
Through Jesus who calls us his friends, may our love be strong as life and death.
May love have the last word in us and be given for free, like yours.
May we remain in your love and love one another as Jesus has loved us.

Sunday Reflection (May 9, 2021)

If we are friends with God, we will get a glimpse of God’s plans and intentions for the world.  I do not think it is about predicting the future with a timetable cleverly drawn from different texts
in the Bible to prove the Lord is returning in the next few years. I am also convinced that it has nothing to do with returning evil for evil or punch for punch.
Rather, if we have caught a glimpse of God’s plans and intentions for the world, we will reveal God’s love to the world through the actions and words of our lives (John 15:9-17).  God’s plans and intentions for the world are connected with how we treat others, and this even includes how we treat our enemies.  God’s plan for the world is about healing and restoration and resurrection.
