Matthew 6:21

25 June, 2023

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. – Matthew 6:21

Heavenly Father, you have granted to your human creation, the whole world, with its wealth of all you have filled therein, for the sufficiency of mankind. We praise and thank you, our Glorious God, for the power, knowledge and wisdom you have awarded to human beings, during our lifetime on earth, to pursue our dreams and fulfill our desires. Lord, we have sinned against you in every way, by forgetting your magnanimous Being and focusing instead, on the temporal gains of this world, ignoring the truth that this world is not our permanent home and we have to return to you.

The desire and craving, pursuing and possessing of earthly treasure is a deadly and deceitful evil, which can cause the loss of souls, even sometimes, of those believers in your Holy Word. It can deeply contaminate the purity of our minds and hearts, causing us to wander from the inherent richness which you have given us of the good news of the Holy Gospel and the grace of eternal life, through everlasting Salvation. It can cause us to forfeit the rich heavenly inheritance which Jesus has made possible for us, and that you Father, are reserving for each of your children in Christ.

Lord, give us the grace and the clear vision of righteousness, to engage ourselves with spiritual fervor, in the unrelentingly pursuit after godliness, faith, love, perseverance and humility of heart, by submitting our lives to your Holy Will. May our hearts, grounded in Jesus our Lord, be faithful to your Holy commands, and may we not be lured away from our spiritual growth and the wisdom of your Holy Word, by the transient treasures of this world. We pray that we harbour the desire to work for the betterment of the lesser of our brethren, uplifting them in faith and love. May we, by our deeds of mercy, rightly inherit the eternal gifts of your grace and rejoice in the heavenly realms, gaining Salvation through Jesus our Lord. Amen
