  • CWG Prayer Chain Post: June 25, 2017

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

    Matthew 10:26-33

    Jesus said to the Twelve: “Fear no one. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known. What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna. Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge. Even all the hairs of your head are counted. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.”

     

    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.
