We need to trust in God’s power to protect us and provide for all our needs.

In the gospel reading today, Jesus is warning us to be on guard against the three things that will make us sleepy: carousing or overindulgence, drunkenness, and the anxieties of daily living. He wants us to be fully awake when He comes.

Jesus warns us not to be anxious of anything in our daily life. Worrying is a sign of lack of faith and too much of it can lead us to depression. It is a thief that takes away our joy and peace of mind. Jesus emphasizes the need to be vigilant at all times and to pray more fervently.

We need to avoid spiritual laziness and indifference. We need to be freed from excessive and crippling anxiety, needless worries and evil habits. We need to get our strength from God by prayer, which means listening to God and talking to Him.

We need to trust in God’s power to protect us and provide for all our needs. Constant prayer is a powerful weapon against worry and addictions. It is our source of strength in the midst of tribulations. Moreover, prayer provides us the confidence to meet our Creator at the end of our earthy life.
