Today’s Meditation

 

IF I ONLY LOVE JESUS
I praise the wounds
and the blood of the Lamb
that heals the weakness
of my body,
I praise the wounds
and the blood of the Lamb
that heals the weakness
of my soul,
I praise the wounds
and the blood of the Lamb
that heals the weakness
of my spirit!

Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in His forgiving power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in His cleansing power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in His saving power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in His releasing power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in His victorious power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in His renewing power.
Praise be to the blood of the Lamb
in His protecting power.

For whoever believes
in the power of the blood of Jesus,
nothing is impossible.

I praise the blood of the Lamb
that covers all my sins
so that they can no
longer be seen,
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that cleanses me
from all my sins
and makes me
white as snow,
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that has power to free me
from all my bondages
and chains of sin.

I praise the blood of the Lamb
that is stronger
than my own sin-infested blood
and remoulds me
into the image of God,

I praise the blood of the Lamb
that is victorious
over all powers that seek to
oppress me,
over every power of the enemy.
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that protects me from all
the devious attacks of the enemy.
I praise the blood of the Lamb
that prepares for me
the bridal garment.

I praise the blood of the Lamb
that makes all things new.
Hallelujah! Amen.
M. Basilea Schlink


Prayers for others

Canticle
Christ, as a light
illumine and guide me.
Christ, as a shield
overshadow me.
Christ under me;
Christ over me;
Christ beside me
on my left and my right.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;
in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.
This day be within and without me,
lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.
Christ as a light;
Christ as a shield;
Christ beside me
on my left and my right.

Blessing
May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you,
wherever He may send you.
May He guide you through the wilderness,
protect you through the storm.
May He bring you home rejoicing
at the wonders He has shown you.
May He bring you home rejoicing
once again into our doors.

+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
