Pray for Families (The Gift of Faith)


Greetings Prayer Warriors,

I found this family prayer and thought it would be a good addition to your tool belt of prayers.

May we be receptive and open to allowing Jesus’ Love to grow within us, so that it’s abundance may be shared with others, especially in our own families.

A Family Prayer For The Year Of Faith

O God our Father,
in Jesus you call all Christian families and homes
to be signs of living faith.
By the light of the Holy Spirit,
lead us to be thankful for the gift of faith,
and by that gift
may we grow in our relationship with Jesus, your Son,
and be confident witnesses to Christian hope and joy
to all we meet.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
(Family Prayer from usccb.org)

It was not through the law that the promise was made to Abraham and his descendants that he would inherit the world, but through the righteousness that comes from faith.   He did not doubt God’s promise in unbelief; rather, he was empowered by faith and gave glory to God.  Romans 4:13;20

Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth; break into song; sing praise! Psalm 98:4

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Accept the gift of faith and share it.
