Have you ever prayed "God give me strength"?
If you have, you are already practicing what this week's Gospel teaches us. In it we are reminded that God is our source of strength to nourish us on our journey through life. Not only physical strength from the bounty of nature He created, but also strength of mind and spirit that God provides when we pray and worship.
One of the best ways to gather strength and deal with life's trials is to follow the example of Jesus – to turn our focus away from ourselves and help others in need.
So next time you're feeling tired or troubled, remember to pray "God give me strength". He will guide you and provide what you need.
