Day 226: The Supreme Gift of Marriage (1652-1658)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, wow, gosh, Lord, you are good, and you have given us the gift of life. All life flows from you. All life, Lord God, flows from you. Your Holy Spirit-life exists where your Holy Spirit exists. Life radiates where your Holy Spirit penetrates. Lord God, we ask you to please penetrate our hearts with your Holy Spirit. Penetrate our relationships with your Holy Spirit so that your love, your life can radiate in our hearts, in our lives, in our relationships, especially those relationships, Lord, where it seems impossible, where it seems like there is no hope. Bring us that same Holy Spirit, that same Holy Spirit of hope, the same Holy Spirit of life, the same Holy Spirit of love, so that in this broken world, with our broken hearts, we can still be holy. We can still be yours. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
