Call My Family, Lord

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
~~ 1 Peter 2:9

Father, I pray today that you may count my family worthy of your calling.

Enable us to become increasingly loving, full of integrity, and steeped in the knowledge of you and your Word.

I ask that you work in our lives that we may grow in all things that please you.

Help us to establish and pursue only those plans, goals, and purposes that are in keeping with your will and intent for our lives;

By your power cause every good purpose and faith-prompted act of ours to bear abundant fruit.

I pray this so that the name of the Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in our lives and our lives in Him.

I thank you for your marvelous grace, for we know:
~~It is only by your grace that we can love unconditionally.
~~It is only by your grace that we can become fruitful.
~~It is only by your grace that we can persevere.
~~It is only by your grace that we can mature.

I ask all these things depending on your grace and in the name of Jesus Christ.

Amen.

  1. I remember that picture!

    I found a black catholic church two blocks from my apartment that i’ve been going to recently. I think it’s my favorite church to date – and since it’s so close i don’t have an excuse not to go. If lance were here next Sunday, I’d take him so he can see their spin on catholic mass. Michael likes it because he says he feels uplifted after service instead of the usual guilt that follows the masses he’s used to šŸ™‚

  2. @ Ashley,
    I am glad to hear that you’ve found a church you enjoy.
    I am also happy to see that you are visiting Chi Rho. šŸ™‚
    Love ya,
    ~ Dad
