Daily Prayer

O Lord, You set before us a choice: “to choose life or to choose death.”  When we are afraid or lonely, be near us. When we are hateful or arrogant, gentle us. When we are enticed by the forces of evil – be they drugs, violence, hatred or envy – grant us the grace to follow You. Whenever we are tempted down the road of death, help us to see Your path and to choose life instead. Amen

Jn 15:1-8

Jesus said to his disciples:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.
He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit,
and everyone that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.
You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you.
Remain in me, as I remain in you.
Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own
unless it remains on the vine,
so neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine, you are the branches.
Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit,
because without me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me
will be thrown out like a branch and wither;
people will gather them and throw them into a fire
and they will be burned.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you,
ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.
By this is my Father glorified,
that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.”
