Your Faith.Forward! Assignment: Walk, Drive, Run, Bike your neighborhood and pray for/bless your neighbors.
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… One high and one low from your day.|
|Read… At that time Jesus came from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to the place where John was. John baptized Jesus in the Jordan River. When Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven open. The Holy Spirit came down on him like a dove. A voice came from heaven and said: “You are my Son and I love you. I am very pleased with you.” (Mark 1:9-11)|
|Talk… Why do you think God said those words to Jesus? How do you think Jesus responded to those words? How do you respond when God says to you: You are my Son and I love you!/You are my daughter and I love you! I am very pleased with you.? Say those words to each other each night before bed.|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
