Pause for Prayer: SUNDAY 11/24

Audio for today's Pause for Prayer

Today we celebrate your kingship, Lord,
even though you told us in so many ways
not to make you a king...

But I just might need a king...

I need you to reign over my life
because left to my own devices
I mess things up way too often...

I need you to rule over my passions:
my hungers and my desires too often override
my thinking, my reasoning and my conscience...

I need you to govern and hold sway
over my erratic ways, my ups and downs,
my inconsistent unpredictability...

I need you to decree again the law of love,
commanding me to give with generosity
when I'm so tempted to hold back...

Be my king, Lord:
reign with loving order over chaos in my day;
rule with gentle strength when I start to go astray;
and govern with your word of truth the way I live my life...

Be my king, Lord,
and rule with gentle grace my heart and soul
and all my thoughts and words and deeds
that I might serve you always,
loyal to your name...

  1. Dear Fr. Fleming,

    My Mom, amazingly enough,
    heard of this site from a man she met at Sacred Heart Church in Lexington. What a blessing that was as I can't begin to tell you how good it is to hear your voice again, to hear your words of comfort and faith in my very own kitchen while I try to make sense of my day and good food for my family.

    Love, Beth Lorenz

  2. I'm very pleased you've found my page, Beth, and that you find it helpful! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
