PRAY

Reflecting on Abraham's willingness to do what God commanded in the first reading, pray this prayer about seeking God's will in your own life. 

PSALM 27:7-9, 13-14

Hear, O Lord, the sound of my call;
have pity on me, and answer me.
Of you my heart speaks; you my glance seeks;
your presence, O Lord, I seek.
Hide not your face from me; 
do not in anger repel your servant.
You are my helper: cast me not off;
forsake me not, O God my savior.

I believe that I shall see the bounty of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord with courage;
be stouthearted, and wait for the Lord.

~from Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers
