What have you asked from the Lord lately? Ask that His will be done in your life - Daily Bible Reflections May 27, 2015

YOUR WILL BE DONE
 
“You do not know what you are asking.” – Mark 10:38
 
      Christmas 2013 was very different from my family’s past Christmases. We had noche buena at the wake of my aunt who succumbed to cancer. A few months earlier, when the doctors discovered that my aunt had the Big C, we fervently prayed for her healing. We believed that our God is bigger and greater than any sickness and that He is our Great Healer. But the Lord knew what is best for everyone. Tita Lory joined our Creator five days before the much-awaited Christmas Day.
       We asked the Lord for her complete healing. We asked that she be free from cancer. We asked for longer life for her. But maybe God said, “You do not know what you are asking.” If God had granted our requests, maybe her pain would have lasted longer. Maybe there’ll be more emotional stress, both for her and her family. Maybe she’ll suffer more.
       Most of the time, we do not know what we are asking from the Lord. Our wisdom is too limited that we think it will be good for us. Although we pray for specific intentions, let’s not forget to include this at the end of our prayer, “Let not my will, but Yours be done.”
       Because at the end of the day, we do not know, Lord. But You do. Lala Dela Cruz (bella.delacruz@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: What have you asked from the Lord lately? Ask that His will be done in your life.
 
Father, in everything, let not my will but Yours be done.
 
St. Augustine of Canterbury, bishop, pray for us.
