Maybe we all need to step back and take a look at the kind of Catholic we are. Maybe we need to remember when Jesus first came into our lives. When we were in the tombs of our sin, unable to save ourselves, and we heard those mighty and bold words, “Take away the stone!” God called us out of our tombs of sin and into His abundant life.
Do not be afraid to tell people what God has done in your life and promise that He will work mightily in their life as well. Do not be afraid to pray for people. Do not be afraid to tell people that God will bless them, heal them, deliver them and raise them from their tombs of hopelessness. Most of all: Tell anyone and everyone how much God loves them and that He wants to have a passionate relationship with them. Have faith in the mighty deeds of the Lord.
The following is a prayer of surrender to the Holy Spirit. Try praying it everyday. Surrender more and more to the God who loves you. Have faith that God will work mightily.
Dear Jesus, I am so sorry for my sins and my unfaithfulness. I ask oh Lord for the grace to faithfully serve you each and everyday. I surrender myself to you totally and completely. I ask that You send Your Holy Spirit into me and stir up the gifts I have received. Enflame my heart Oh Jesus. I surrender all. Come Holy Spirit. I ask all this in Jesus’ name. Amen
Take away the Stone! John 11:38
