ENLIGHTENMENT PRAYER

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
My God, I firmly believe that Thou art everywhere present and seest all things...cleanse my heart from all vain, wicked, and distracting thoughts. Enlighten my understanding, and inflame my will, that I may pray with reverence, attention, and devotion.

REFLECTION

"Stand steadfast, therefore, you who work righteousness, and doubt not, that your passage may be with the holy angels."
Shepherd of Hermas

Reflect on the quote for a while.
What does it mean to you?
Sit quietly and consider this:
How often do you do charity work?

THANKSGIVING PRAYER

Almighty and eternal God, I adore Thee, and I thank Thee for all the benefits which Thou, in Thy infinite goodness and mercy, hast conferred upon me.

RESOLUTION

Based on this reflection, I resolve to avoid all sin.
However, I should especially resolve to avoid one particular deadly sin:
(Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Pride, Sloth)

St. James says, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction.” I’m a black man, if you didn’t know. And it makes me sad that there are many problems in the black community these days. The main problem is that black kids are missing their fathers. I thank God for my parents, especially my father, because fathers are necessary. Even Jesus (who is God) opted to have an earthly foster father. If you want to help any community, St. James laid out a plan. Help the fatherless and widows and you can’t go wrong. Mass movements that have nebulous demands aren’t helpful. Believe St. James.

RESOLUTION & MORNING PRAYER

My God, I offer Thee these resolutions; unless Thou deignest to bless them, I can not be faithful to them. I beseech Thee most earnestly to bless me, that I may serve Thee faithfully this day by a perfect devotedness to all my duties and a steadfast adherence to all my promises and good resolutions. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Thank you and God bless ☦️
Until next time, stay holy my friend...
