Day 107: Origin of the Church (758-766)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we give you praise and we thank you so much. We thank you for not giving up on us in our brokenness. For not abandoning us in our weakness. But actually in our weakness, Lord, you come to us. In our brokenness you draw close to us. Thank you not only for drawing us close to you. We also thank you for creating a Church where we don’t approach you alone. Yes of course, Lord, we give you our hearts personally and individually. But, you also call us to be a family. You call us as brothers and sisters to live in communion with each other and to live in that covenant relationship with you. So we ask you to please help us to be patient with our brothers and sisters. Help us to be patient with the reality that is the Church and help us to always live in right relationship with you this day and every day. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
