I receive the “Thought of the Day” every morning by email. Thank you!
My husband and I lead a time of praise and adoration in our parish every first Wednesday of the month. Last month, we prayed Léandre Lachance’s inspired text of the “Prayer to Jesus” with the participants.
This Sunday, on the cover of our parish bulletin, our parish priest wrote a short editorial. What a surprise for us to see that he had taken inspiration from the text of the “Prayer to Jesus” and had written a short comment about it at the end! See the means the Lord uses to touch the hearts: through the inspirations provided to Léandre by Jesus. And his messages reach our small village … What a wonderful thing!

Editorial of the Week: Prayer to Jesus
“Lord Jesus, I want to thank You, to praise You, to bless You and give thanks for Your Presence in my heart; You whom I do not see, but whom I feel by the Love You pour into it. I repeat my “Yes” so that You may transform it according to Your Heart, You who are everything, transform me, who is nothing, into what You want. I would like for my surrender to be total and unconditional. I commit in advance to all the “Yes” you will seek from me. Aware of my weakness, I count on the protection of all the saints, holy angels, mostly my Guardian Angel.”
Through this prayer, let us rediscover the taste and flavor of prayer. To pray is to take a free moment, a period of rest in and with the Lord. Wherever we are, the Lord is there, He is waiting for us, He is listening.
This prayer, this heart-to-heart relationship with God, can help us in our daily lives. Let us not wait for a misfortune to bring us closer to the Lord, let us dare to give thanks, to be grateful for all that we receive.
