Gospel Reading
Matthew 11: 20-24

Opening Prayer

You love people who respond to You in the simplicity of trust, God of faithfulness. You warned Your children Israel not to lose faith, even amid disaster, darkness and defeat. Jesus was hurt and angry that neighboring peoples lost faith when they did not continue to get what they wanted. Give us the Spirit of Trust, Faithful One, to believe in You, even when You seem absent and our needs and dreams are not being met. Teach us to surrender to Your larger plans and mysterious dreams. Give us innocent trust in the frontiers of our lives.
