Gospel of John 16:12-15
The Spirit will receive what I give and tell you about it.
Jesus said to his disciples:
‘I still have many things to say to you
but they would be too much for you now.
But when the Spirit of truth comes
the Spirit will lead you to the complete truth,
since the Spirit will not be speaking as from the Spirit’s self
but will say only what the Spirit has learnt;
and the Spirit will tell you of the things to come.
The Spirit will glorify me,
since all the Spirit tells you
will be taken from what is mine.
Everything the Father has is mine;
that is why I said:
All he tells you
will be taken from what is mine.’
In my prayer, I listen to the Spirit within. I take time to listen to what is life giving and then respond with gratitude for this gift Jesus through his love of the Father is teaching about here.
I pray for the gifts of this same Spirit to wash over our beautiful but troubled world.
