Pray for Families (Growing in Virtue)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

As I've been away on pilgrimage, I was blessed to experience a new kind of family, one where everyone is seeking a closer walk with God. The experience was illuminated by the angelic voice of our tour lead, Alejandro, who with his Italian accent would either whisper (when the majority were snoozing on the tour bus) or shout (when we were in large tour queues, " family...Family!"  Being greeted and welcomed as "family" made us feel like we were being wrapped in a nice warm blanket. Witnessing the patience he had with even the slowest pilgrim was inspirational. 

It makes you wonder, if and when we recognize our own family as "ours" and treat them with loving kindness and patience, what positive change might occur?

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galations 5:22-23

Let's pray for some heavenly fruit!  

Come quickly to help me, LORD! Psalm 40:14

Pray that all members of your family grow in the virtues that they most need for the uplifting of others. Don't forget to include yourself in this prayer!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Become a prayer warrior, the best kind of family. Pass it on!
