Pray for Families (Judas or Peter?)

Good Friday

Dear Prayer Warriors,

We make choices everyday in our attitudes, responses, and behaviors.

During trials, do we hold on to an attitude like Judas’ or Peter’s?
Despair or Hope & Repentance?

When challenged, do we respond like a soldier or a servant?
Battle or Love?

In our behaviors, are we a Child of the Darkness or Child of the Light?
Evil or Good?

Do we respond to others as an antagonizer or a consoler?
Pain or Comfort?

Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth. By this we shall know that we are of the truth, and reassure our hearts before him whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 1 John 3:18-21

Meditate on the Passion of Christ. It was to purge our collective sin that He made the ultimate sacrifice. Contemplate your behavior toward each family member. How might your behavior change to imitate that of Jesus? Pray that each member of your family will remain or become a Child of the Light.

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God. John 3:16-21

May all of us continually accept the gift of our salvation.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Share the gift. Pass it on.
