Holy Spirit of God, help me continue to live rooted and established in Christ Jesus...
I know that it is always better to be rooted and established in Christ, before the day begins, as I journey through the day, and any time I am at rest and reflecting on things. But it is hard to continue keep my heart and mind rooted and grounded as I should. Only with the help of the Holy Spirit as I move through the disciplines of prayer (including praying scriptures), fasting and acts of charity am I able to excavate a foundation deep and firm enough to build up my life in Christ brick by brick, thought by thought. Nothing is more grounding than ‘becoming alive’ in Christ. Holy Spirit of God, help me continue to live rooted and established in Christ Jesus.
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:8)
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
