Bible study for the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time
6/24 – Acts 10:42-48 – Lord God, Your grace calls to us and draws us to baptism. Send forth Your Spirit to draw all to regeneration in Your Holy Church. Grant that no person may place any barrier to acceptance into new life in You.
6/25 – Acts 8:38 – Lord Jesus, continue to draw people to You through the work of Your deacons who, like Philip, proclaim Your word and baptize.
6/26 – John 3:23 – Lord Jesus, John went out to proclaim Your arrival, and the immanence of the kingdom. Grant that we may likewise go forth to boldly proclaim Your salvation, welcoming all who come forward to accept You.
6/27 – Acts 22:16 – Lord Jesus, the gift and grace of baptism are readily available to all. Inspire our brothers and sisters to avail themselves of this beautiful sacrament which all Your Church’s hold in common.
6/28 – Isaiah 1:16-18 – Lord God, in baptism we are regenerated to new life, reborn to follow Your Gospel and do good for all. Grant that we may maintain life in You and freedom from sin.
6/29 – 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 – Lord Jesus, in baptism we were made clean. In our journey of faith we continue to struggle against what is evil and separates us from You and our brothers and sisters. Grant us the grace to persevere in avoiding evil and in doing good.
6/30 – John 3:5 – Lord Jesus, renew us. Grant that we may always remember the promise of our baptism and confirmation through which we have been made heirs to the kingdom.
Pray the week: Lord Jesus, thank You for the gift of baptism through which we have entered into Your life.
