Surrender Novena Day 1
Brothers and Sisters
In my prayer time today, I was led to do a recorded message to all of you (very impromptu and unscripted) instead of my usual letter. (See action button below) One thing I mention in the message is my sense that the Lord wants to see our Community pray the
together in the nine days leading up to Easter.
Palm Sunday is all about Jesus surrendering to his mission as Savior and Redeemer- a mission that was full of pain and desolation. The promise of the resurrection gave him assurance of the Father’s Love. In this time of uncertainty, we are called to do likewise- Surrender to the will of God in the hope he will bring about resurrection and life in the midst of suffering and distress!
Here is the Prayer for Day 1 of the Surrender Novena:
(From Jesus) Why do you confuse yourselves by worrying? Leave the care of your affairs to me, and everything will be peaceful. I say to you, in truth, that every act of true, blind, complete surrender to me produces the effect that you desire and resolves all difficult situations.
Say This: O Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything! (10 times)
We will send out the successive days of the Novena to you every day by email until Holy Saturday. Please pray this with me and your other brothers and sisters of COTL as we seek the will and Grace of God upon us, and upon the Whole World
In addition, Jojo and I are working on a way to do an online video gathering! We have a lot of things figured out and will be in touch very soon about how we can get together and worship the Lord together (online is better than nothing!). Worship is an important way the people of God can bring forth the power of God to a World in need of a revelation of the Father’s love.
God Bless you all- We are praying for you! Look for Day two of the Surrender Novena tomorrow!
