Let Us Pray
Dear Lord, help me to become more aware of the distractions in my life that prevent me from experiencing your presence and peace. May I develop the discipline of removing those distractions so that I may contemplate your goodness and your plan for me.
Scripture for Reflection
"Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking some one to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experience of suffering is required of your brotherhood throughout the world" (1 Peter 5:8–9).
