Greetings Prayer Warriors,
Reflect back to your childhood. Do you have memories of gathering together at the dinner table each night, discussing your day or hearing about a family member’s? Maybe it was spent teasing a sibling or complaining about the food, but either way, it was a daily time for togetherness.
Today with technology, we have even more ways to connect, but rather than bringing us closer together, it tends to separate us. Rather than free up our time, instead our time is consumed by it. Family members never seem to have the time or ability to sit and engage fully. Satan smiles knowingly, as once again he has found a way to take a good and use it to weaken the family.
Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings, from the wicked who despoil me. Psalm 17:8-9
Lord, help us to hold fast to our family rituals and long time traditions of togetherness. May we grow in the desire to always put our family second, only after you. Protect us from the subtle snares of the devil and guard us as the apple of your eye. St. Michael, come with a legion of angels angels to guard and guide us always. Jesus we trust in you!
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Sharing is a form of togetherness. Pass it on!
