Day 286: The Family and Society (2207-2213)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ, we thank you. We give you praise this day. We ask you to please receive our praise, receive our thanks. May you be glorified. Lord God, your identity as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is an image of what families are meant to be. It is an image of this pouring out in love, receiving love, and that love bringing forth life. We ask that you please heal the wounds in our own families, heal the wounds in the families around us. And we ask you, Lord, help our families be a source of goodness for the people around us. And help the people around us support the family. Lord God, let there be in our community and our culture, let there be no division between or opposition between family and society. But help the family to help society, and help society to help the family. Lord God, in your name, in the name of Jesus Christ, we ask. Amen”
