"We pray that our lives will be shaped by the Gospel"
This is part of our nightly prayer with the children. They all know it. They all pray it. This morning I woke up with this prayer on my lips.
Frankly, I have to ask, "What do I really mean when I pray this?"
The origin of the word gospel is Good News. Does my life speak of good news?
Am I open to being shaped? Do I allow the teaching of Jesus to penetrate my will?
Do I live and work in a manner that provokes the questions for which the Gospel is the answer?
