Pray for Families (Be Bold!)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Last week the 3 million+ pilgrims who descended upon Copacabana Beach in Rio for World Youth Day, heard Pope Francis in essence, commission them as disciples. 

"Where does Jesus send us?" he asked them. "There are no borders, no limits: He sends us to everyone."

Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  Luke 2:10

He also told them that not sharing their experience of God's love with others would be "like withholding oxygen from a flame that was burning strongly."

For this reason, I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have through the imposition of my hands. 2 Timothy 1:6

Powered by Love, we are all called as God’s children to share the gospel.  The Lord wrote His name upon our hearts, and here for many, a dormant desire rests like a pilot light waiting to be burst forth. 

All journeys are most fruitful when accompanied by prayer.  Pray that as we the children of God journey toward Him, we never neglect to invite others to walk with us.  May we grow in holy desire and become emboldened to share the joy, peace, and love that is only found in Him.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Be bold!  Pass it on!
