Pray for Families (Enjoying the Gift)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Think back to your favorite childhood memories.  A joyful smile floods your face, doesn’t it?  Rest there a while.   My guess is your cherished memories are not about time with “things” but with people: relatives, family, & friends.  Yet how easy it is to immerse ourselves with “things” when we are trying to fill a void in our life.  Other times we selfishly fill the void with people whom we treat like “things” which we discard when we have no further use for them.

Family and friends are a gift.  Our Lord shines through them so that we might experience his unconditional love and friendship and seek to draw nearer to Him.

Empty yourself of your needless wants and desires and make room for the only thing that can fill the void.  Jesus.

Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you of two minds.  Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you. James 4:8,10

Lord, help us let go of all that separates us from you.  Bless our families, that together we may experience the fullness of your love!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Gather your family and cherish the time together. Feel the heaven-sent love!  Pass it on!
