Jonah 4:1-11, Luke 11:1-4
“God, our all-loving Father”
In today’s Gospel, Jesus’ disciples must have been impressed by the way He was praying which was different from the rest of the Jewish religious leaders. He was neither blabbing out words nor simply praying out of routine. Most likely, they saw Jesus praying to God the Father as though He was speaking with someone He truly loved. There was something special in the way Jesus prayed that one of them asked Him, “Lord, teach us to pray...” Jesus invited His disciples as well as each one of us today to enter into a deeper relationship with God who is our Father. God is not someone distant from our lives whom we cannot relate with. God is not indifferent and uncaring. God is Father.
Today, as His children, let us relate with God our all-loving Father. We trust Him and know that we belong to Him and that God will give us all that is good and life-giving.
Question for reflection:
1) Looking back at my journey of faith, what are my experiences of trust and love that I have with God my Father?
