To all of us who have told ourselves that we have no one to rely on but ourselves, Jesus calls out to you today. Which areas of your lives are you playing the role of saviour in? The Saviour of your soul invites you to take courage and trust in Him!

After you watch this video, ponder the areas of control that you struggle to surrender to the Lord. In prayerful contemplation, invite Jesus into these areas and ask for the grace to surrender.

For further reflection:

You may also want to pray with the creative reflection on Barrabas and Jesus

Do not be afraid to ask for prayers from your friends if you need them. Call for help, if you need. A reminder to also not rely on yourself, especially in this season. Bless one another with the gift of prayer!
