CMMB: Your Weekly Reflection in Prayer

Weekly Prayer Reflection for Winter
“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God Who produces all of them in everyone.”

1 Corinthians 12:4-6

2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Dear Friemds, 
On the third Monday of January, all fifty states now celebrate in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King had a dream, and spoke of that dream in Washington, D.C. in August 1963, almost fifty years ago. He dreamt that all children could live together in peace, and not be judged by the color of their skin. He dreamt that justice and righteousness would pour down from the heavens.

It is important for us to not only reflect on the dream and vision of Dr. King, but to work and pray like him (also like the African child below) that peace and justice, gentleness and compassion, be more present and shining in our world in this New Year.

Prayer of an African Child
 Lord God, what kind of world is this that the adult people are going to leave for us children? There is fighting everywhere. You are the only one Who can help us, Lord. Give us a new world in which we can be happy, in which we can have friends and work together for a good future. A world in which there will not be any cruel people who seek to destroy us and our world in so many ways.
