  • CWG Prayer Chain Post: June 16, 2019

    The CWG Prayer Chain Post is a weekly post for members to include their special intentions by adding a comment.

    Romans 5:1-5

    Brothers and sisters: Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance, and endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope, and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

    The power of prayer and the power of people praying.

    JUNE INTENTION PRAYER 

    A Prayer For a Family

    O dear Jesus,
    I humbly implore You to grant Your special graces to our family.
    May our home be the shrine of peace, purity, love, labor, and faith.
    I beg You, dear Jesus, to protect and bless all of us, absent and present, living
    and dead.

    O Mary,
    loving Mother of Jesus,
    and our Mother,
    pray to Jesus for our family,
    for all the families of the world,
    to guard the cradle of the newborn,
    the schools of the young and their vocations.

    Blessed Saint Joseph,
    holy guardian of Jesus and Mary,
    assist us by your prayers
    in all the necessities of life.
    Ask of Jesus that special grace
    which He granted to you,
    to watch over our home
    at the pillow of the sick and the dying,
    so that with Mary and with you,
    heaven may find our family unbroken
    in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    Amen.

    Please leave a comment with your intention. If you have problems adding an intention, email it to Mike Hays at coachhays(at)gmail(dot)com and I will add it.  God bless.

The CWG Prayer

Holy Family, guide our minds, our hearts, our hands, as we write, speak, illustrate – help our words to live in union with the Word.

Teach us discipline and skill to use the talents God gives us.

Give us also insight and courage to convey God's love through our craft, and humility to be open to His divine will, shaping our lives, in loving loyalty to His Church.

In Christ's name,

Amen.
