Abba Father

"God of the universe, we worship you as Lord. God, ever close to us, we rejoice to call you Father. From this world's uncertainty we look to your covenant. Keep us one in your peace, secure in your love….."

God our Father is ever close to us. We rejoice to call Him Father. He is indeed our Father. We are His kids. Abba Father!

Nothing is certain in this world. But the word of God stands firm forever. The certainty of God's word is a covenant.

God is our guide and protector

"Father, guide and protector of your people, grant us an unfailing respect for your name and keep us always in your love……" (Opening Prayer – 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

God is our guide and protector. Love and respect for God's name is grace.

A hundred fold reward

"I solemnly tell you: those who have left everything and followed me will be repaid a hundred fold and will gain eternal life." (Matthew 19: 28 – 29)

What we can leave behind completely for Christ's sake?

  • Family
  • Property
  • Status

Lord Jesus, help me to truly leave everything and follow you so that I may deserve your promise in Matthew 19: 27 – 29.
