February 16 (reputation) Blessed Jesus, in the New Testament Letter to Philemon, it says that his slave Onesimus had run away as a thief, met Saint Paul, and received forgiveness. I give to You my own desire to run. When my reputation has been slandered by people who misunderstand me, who are prejudiced against me, and whom I've hurt through my sinfulness, help me to stop running away from them and show me how to run to You instead to find justice. Just as Paul became an advocate for Saint Onesimus, bring to me someone who will help others see me as I really am and open their hearts toward me. Saint Onesimus, pray for me. Amen. -from wordbytes.org/saints/DailyPrayers/On es imus.htm
