Prayer to be More Flexible

L. "I have become all things to all people

R. so that by all possible means I might save some of them." (1 Cor. 9:22)

 God our Father, over the course of many years each of us has developed many habits, good and bad, and formed many opinions about people and life. As comfortable as we are with these habits and opinions, we know that we do not have all the answers to the many issues and problems that face us each day.

 Help us to be more flexible in our ways and to be more open-minded to the thoughts, customs and ideas of others. Let the similarities and dif?ferences that exist between us help us see the strengths and weaknesses of our own lifestyle and show us new ways to improve ourselves as persons.

 May our thoughts and ideas have a positive influence on those with whom we dialogue even though we may not always agree with them. Help us to see that sharing and caring about each other can and will benefit us all. Hear us, O loving Father. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ

you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.

   Show us your face and we will be saved.

Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;

the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;

made Peter weep after his betrayal,

and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.

   Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:

“If you knew the gift of God!”

   You are the visible face of the invisible Father,

of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:

let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.

You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness

in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:

let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.

   Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,

and restore sight to the blind.  

   We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.         Amen.

   How have you ever insisted that things had to done a certain way? - Your way! I found it interesting that a friend of mine will not let her husband do the laundry because he NEVER folds things the way she likes them folded.

 When I was a young lad, I used to watch a neighbor lock his car when he came home from work each day. He would get out of his car, lock the doors, walk about 5 steps away from the car, come back and check all the doors again to make sure they were locked, would again walk about 5 steps away, come back, run his fingers along the edges of all the car windows to make sure they were closed tightly, walk 5 steps away from the car, turn and look back and only then go into his house. Now that's what I call inflexible.

 Hopefully, you and I aren't that bad off, but being inflexible can hurt our relationships with family, friends and co-workers. This month we ask our heavenly Father to help us to not insist that things always have to be done our way and help us to be more flexible
