Pray for Families (Praising kindnesses)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Family can easily be taken for granted.  The small kindnesses they do for us on a daily/weekly/monthly basis can be overlooked as they become routine.  Unfortunately, what they don’t do for us tends to rise to the top of our consciousness.  So make a point of verbally noticing all your family does for you and each other and show some sincere appreciation. 

A good time to get the positive dialogue flowing is during a vacation or “stay-cation”.  Take this time to tune-in more closely to your family.  Vacations are a great way to make some lasting positive memories. Now here is the secret to a wonderful family vacation…

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do. And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection. Colossians 3: 12-14

Most of all, don’t forget to pray with your family, while on vacation. As the routine changes, it can be even easier to slip in some prayer.  Say a prayer during your drive time, before heading out to the airport, after a day of fun, etc.  Pray for each family member, adding some personalized intentions.  Praise the Lord for His enduring kindness to your family.

Blessing to all of you as you enjoy the gift of summer!

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Prayer is a simple path to perfection, yours or others! Pass it on!
