Saturday, May 27: "Ask in Jesus` name, that your joy may be full"

Gospel Reading: John 16:23-28

 

In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name. Hitherto you have asked nothing in my name; ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.  "I have said this to you in figures; the hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in figures but tell you plainly of the Father.  In that day you will ask in my name; and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;  for the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from the Father.  I came from the Father and have come into the world; again, I am leaving the world and going to the Father."

 

Meditation: Do you pray with confidence to your heavenly Father? Jesus often taught his disciples by way of illustration or parable. Here he speaks not in "figures" (the same word used for parables), but in plain speech. Jesus revealed to them the hidden treasure of the heavenly kingdom and he taught them how to pray to the Father in his name. Now Jesus opens his heart and speaks in the plainest of language:"The Father himself loves you!" How can the disciples be certain of this?

 

 

"Heavenly Father, your love knows no bounds and your mercies are new every day. Fill me with gratitude for your countless blessings and draw me near to your throne of grace and mercy. Give me confidence and boldness to pray that your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
