Today’s Drawing and prayer


Charcoal: Ronald Raab, CSC

Prayer based on: Matthew 9:1-8

Jesus, Son of the Living God,

You call the man out of his paralysis, “Rise, pick up your mat and walk.”

Help me to sort through the years of fear and regret that I too may live a life of integrity.

Open me to the wisdom that is your forgiveness and presence.

Send me forth into the world even when I know I am still stiffened by doubt.

Enable me to learn more about myself from seeking you within my heart.

For I am paralyzed not in my limbs but in my ability to discover you from within.

Jesus, source of mercy, run toward me in my longing for you alone.

With you my heart will rise again.

WIth this wisdom, I will live forever.
