Prayer for the Day: Conversion and Repentance!
“Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and of your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for your goodness’ sake, O Lord!” (Ps. 25: 6-7). Conversion is about change from our sinful or wayward ways to saintly ways and repentance is the sharp turn from sinfulness to gracefulness that culminates in conversion. As repentant sinners, we need conversion daily in the spirit of true repentance just like the Ninevites of Jonah 3:1-5.10. There is no time to delay our conversion and repentance because the time to be honest is very short as St. Paul tells us through 1Cor. 7:29-31. Therefore, let us humbly follow Jesus in the spirit of immediacy as Peter, Andrew, James and John did in Mark 1:14-20. Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us: Lord have MERCY!
