Catholicjules’ Prayer/Mantra

Posted: March 23, 2013 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys, Meditations, Prayers

As I continue to journey in faith, one of my greatest challenges is remaining humble and holy when faced with confrontation.  The temptation to be snide, defensive and in certain situations even a little aggressive is overwhelming.  I have given in to the weakness from time to time though not as often as I used to in the past. As I was reflecting on this weakness today, this came to mind….

If I see every situation or encounter as an opportunity to bear witness to Christ then I remain walking in the Light.

Later this morning, I brought my kids for their swimming lesson and decided to go for a swim as well. And again I believe inspired by the Holy Spirit I came up with this mantra/prayer which I intend to recite every day first thing I wake up and need be throughout the day until it I am one with it. It incorporates the Jesus prayer as well as a desire to live in discipleship.

“Lord Jesus Christ, son of the Living God have mercy on me a sinner, with, through and in your Love let me always bear witness to you in thought, word and deed.” Amen
