Isaiah 25:6-10; Psalm 23; Matthew 15:29-37
The Lord invites us to a bounquet on his holy mountain. On that mountain the bible says he will destroy the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death for ever, and he will wipe away tears from all faces. These benefits and many others await us on the mountain only if we can climb. In the gospel, Jesus healed the sick and fed the multitude that came to meet him on the Mountain top. Jesus cares for our spiritual and material needs. But we must endeavour to climb his holy mountain – a place of prayer and encounter before we can enjoy the benefits therein.
Let us pray
Lord Jesus, am only human help me to serve you. Give me the grace to begin and sustain a life of prayer. By the Power in your name, drive away from me all forms of sicknesses and diseases. Drive away faithlessness and dispair. Drive far away poison, harmful ideas and persons. Restore strength to my body and joy to my spirit, so that in my renewed health, I may testify of your healing and miraculous power through Christ our Lord. Amen!
