1 John 5:14-21

Psalm 149

John 2:1-11

…the Mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.”  John 2:3

Lord, everything you touch is changed.  Everyone who experiences you is transformed like the wedding water into wine.  There have been times in my life that I have run out of wine.  Living unaware of your presence is like a wedding without wine.  Changing the human heart is a greater sign of your glory than changing water into wine.  Lord, I yearn to live the life you want for me.  Change my pride to humility.  Change my independence to relying on you.  Change my sinful ways to your ways.  Help me to seek your guidance when faced with decisions, big and small.  Heal my wounded heart with your forgiveness.  Drown my guilt and shame with mercy.  Jesus, I gotta believe the wine at that wedding was the choicest of all vintages.  May I obey the words of your mother Mary: “Do whatever he tells you”.  Fill the jars of my life with your abundant grace so that it overflows with your life and love.  Amen.
