I pray that you Lord open the eyes of our hearts. Strengthen us so that we may not only see your will for our lives but that we may act boldly in accordance with it.  

Help us accept the sufferings offered by life and allowed by you for our

progress and purification, we spare ourselves much harder ones. Help us develop this kind of realism and, once and for all stop expecting a life without suffering or conflict. That is the life of Heaven, not earth. Help us, strengthen us, so that we may willingly take up our cross Daily and follow Jesus courageously.

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”               Romans 12:2

Lord, please help these kids know they are perfectly made and forever loved.

Glory to God,

Mr.  P.
