[From the version for families with children]
Laser beams: one of the amazing inventions in modern times. These beams can reconnect delicate areas of the eyes as well as do other wonderful things.
Praying for someone is like sending a laser beam of your love and God’s love into their souls and bodies. That’s the way Daniel prays in the reading for today. As you read his prayer, let your mind and heart be open to how you too can pray for the people of this earth, all of whom are God’s children.
You will notice four aspects of Daniel prayer that can be summarized under the following acronym: ACTS: Adoration, Contrition, Thanksgiving and Supplication—another name for prayer requests. So let’s you and I do ACTS today and everyday, sending laser beams of prayer to those for whom we are called to pray.
Mondays are dedicated to the reading of the Hebrew Prophets.
In the season of Kingdomtide this year, we read the Book of Daniel.
