The line in scripture that speaks to me today is “if two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven”. Many times it seems like our prayers are falling on deaf ears. It’s hard to accept that God’s ways are not our ways and he has a time for everything we ask for with faith. Surrendering to the will of God is not easy. I pray that he will give me the courage to trust him and his plans for my life .
I invite you to share your thoughts and feelings.
‘If your brother does something wrong, go and have it out with him alone, between your two selves. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.
If he does not listen, take one or two others along with you: whatever the misdemeanour, the evidence of two or three witnesses is required to sustain the charge.
But if he refuses to listen to these, report it to the community; and if he refuses to listen to the community, treat him like a gentile or a tax collector.
In truth I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
In truth I tell you once again, if two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven.
For where two or three meet in my name, I am there among them.’
Gospel, Matthew 18:15-20
