Welcome to another minute mental prayer. First of all, let's ask Our Blessed Lord to enlighten us and guide us to greater truth, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen +

Now, let's think about these reflections for a few moments while meditating on this quote:

"Bow your knees, pray to the Lord, and glorify His name because He deemed you worthy."

Shepherd of Hermas. Book 1. Vision 2. Chapter 1.

What does it mean to bow your knees? Why does bowing have significance? Do you feel worthy of God's grace? If not, why not? How often do you glorify God?


Yes, I know, there are a lot of questions here. Take some time and mull over them. The answers to life's toughest questions are all in God. He is the answer. He is the solution. He is the only thing that can make us truly happy. So we should definitely take time to meditate on difficult questions such as these. God has deemed us worthy. That's why you're here, reading this blog post right now. This is why you are praying along with me. Is it Divine Providence or just chance? Your further sanctification is not–cannot–be pure chance. So relish the moment. Enjoy your prayer time. And thank God for all His graces.


Now, let's thank God for his enlightenment, mercy, and forgiveness. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen +
