0119 Prayer 禱告

馬太福音14:22-23

『耶穌隨即催門徒上船,先渡到那邊去,等他叫眾人散開。散了眾人以後,他就獨自上山去禱告。到了晚上,只有他一人在那裡。』

Matthew 14:22-23

Jesus Walks on the Water

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. 23 After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone.”

親愛的主,我們感謝贊美你!感謝你藉著耶穌基督向我們顯明:留出獨處的時間,單獨與上帝親近是何等重要和奇妙!事實上,我們確實需要這樣的操練。因為生活在這個嘈雜世界當中,我們很容易受到這個世界和這世界的人的影響。主啊,求你賜我們合理安排時間的智慧,使我們能超脫世俗的攪擾,擁有獨處的時間,可以單獨與神親近,好讓我們的心因親近神而越發敏銳,以致不會因不能辨認大牧人我們神的聲音而迷失方向。主啊,懇求你賜我們一顆安靜的心,一對能聽的耳,使我們在安靜中只聽智慧人的言語,不聽掌管愚昧人的喊聲,因為只有越少聽從人的聲音,才能越發聽到神的聲音,更多地得享從神而來的智慧;只有越少受世人期望的牽制,才能越發順服於神的帶領。願神賜我們勇氣,加添我們的力量,使我們能夠決然地向著老我死去,向著世界死去,使在我們裡面活著的是基督,而非我們自己,時刻享受與主同在的喜樂!禱告奉主耶穌基督的名,阿們!
