The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name – he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.
First I’ll pray,
Then let the day
As I reflect today, oh Holy Spirit, our Advocate, help me each moment to see what you are teaching me. I have a list of plans, but I know that there will be interruptions and obstacles. Let me keep my eyes on you, as Peter did when he first walked toward you over the water. Once he stopped looking at you and thought of himself, he floundered. Focus me, Spirit of God. Center me in you. Nothing else matters.
If I consider every circumstance, every task, every encounter a prayer, then I can push aside selfishness and irritation. If I remember that I am yours, everything will have meaning. Teach me; guide me. Thy will be done.
