Audio of Daily Prayer

God of love and understanding, we all know how challenging our world can be for young people – especially teenagers.  During these years of change, Lord, be with them as they learn to balance family, school, friends and significant others.  Guide them with Your gentle touch as they struggle with peer pressure, as it can be hard for them to find their true voice.  Infuse them with Your love so they find the courage to identify their personal beliefs.  Father, I pray that teenagers will learn to turn to You in their times of need.  Amen.

 

Matthew 5:20-26

Jesus said to his disciples:
"I tell you,
unless your righteousness surpasses that
of the scribes and Pharisees,
you will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.

"You have heard that it was said to your ancestors,
You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.
But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother
will be liable to judgment,
and whoever says to his brother, Raqa,
will be answerable to the Sanhedrin,
and whoever says, 'You fool,' will be liable to fiery Gehenna.
Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar,
and there recall that your brother
has anything against you,
leave your gift there at the altar,
go first and be reconciled with your brother,
and then come and offer your gift.
Settle with your opponent quickly while on the way to court.
Otherwise your opponent will hand you over to the judge,
and the judge will hand you over to the guard,
and you will be thrown into prison.
Amen, I say to you,
you will not be released until you have paid the last penny."
