Power Prayer

"Almighty and ever-present Father,

your watchful care reaches from end to end

and orders all things in such power

that even the tensions and tragedies of sin

cannot frustrate your loving plans.

Help us to embrace your will,

give us the strength to follow your call,

so that your truth may live in our hearts

and reflect peace to those who believe in your love.

We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord."

The Church prays thus in the Opening Prayer in the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. I call this power prayer. Consider these truths in the prayer:

  • God's plan for us is loving.
  • Nothing can frustrate this plan; not even sins.
  • We need God's help to embrace his will.
  • We need his strength to follow his call.

I rejoice in the certain knowledge that God's loving providence covers my life totally. All is well. All shall be well. All manner of things shall be well.
