My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God

My soul is thirsting for you
Prayers for the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

This week, let us meditate on the words of the responsorial psalm, which expresses our desire to be united with God as Jeremiah was.




“O God, you are my God whom I seek; My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.” In what ways are you seeking God right now? How is your soul thirsting for God? Consider a time when you felt particularly close to God, when you experienced some kind of inner transformation and you could say with the psalmist: “You are my help, and in the shadow of your wings I shout for joy.”




This week, allow yourself to spend some quiet time in the presence of the Lord. Ask yourself how, like Jeremiah, the Word of God can burn within you.
