Weekly Devotion – October 23rd

Weekly Devotions

Weekly devotion - October 23rdOur reflection from the Gospel this week is:

“Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God.”

In the ancient times of Caesar, the ruler’s image was on the currency used. It could be interpreted that the coins were the ruler’s personal property. We, too, have been stamped with God’s image, since we are created in His own likeness. We belong, not to ourselves, but to God who created us.

We pray together: St. Jude, teach me to remember that I am created in the image of God and to strive to do what is right.

    Father, I’ve read that I should and can pray for the impossible. The impossible has been laid before you multiple times. At what point do I move along? At what point do I say, “Oh Lord it must be not your will” Or do I stay persistent in prayer? All things, ways are possible with you. So why not ask for it? Why not ? Why wouldn’t I try to persuade you? Tell me? In the name of Christ , Amen

I don’t know her needs , so attend to her long term and short term well being. I pray my friend Tkf finds some kind of softness in his jaded heart. I pray my friend Jw will not be fleeced in any area of his life. I pray my mother finds some peace of mind and can lay down her restlessness. Father, give me the tools I need to reach goals. Again, praying in the name of Christ. Amen
