These nine days of prayer provide an opportunity to open ourselves to God's love and energy so that, like the early disciples, we become both individually and corporately the people God calls us to be.

Day 4: Monday, June 2

Matthew 25.3 1-46

Jesus said, 'Whatever you did for one of the least of these, you did it to me.'

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your people.

Adoration: Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.

Confession: for when we could have helped someone in need but turned our backs.

Thanks: for those who serve people in need in the name of Christ.

Seeking: that we may see Jesus in the faces of those around us.
