We’re giving FAITH5 a small twist: FAITH5 plus 1. The plus 1 is a chance as individuals or as a family to perform a reckless act of grace throughout the week.
This week the plus 1 is to choose one thing this week that you will go without…a cup of coffee, desert, a bag of chips, etc. As you do that, pray for the hungry. And find a way to donate what you save to hunger or to a hungry person.
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… 1 high and 1 low.|
|Read… Jesus said to them: You give them something to eat. (Luke 9:13, when the disciples asked Jesus to send the people home after a long day of listening to Jesus.)|
|Talk… about this passage in light of your day…your high and your low. What thing are you facing today or tomorrow where you need the strength of Jesus to help you?|
|Pray… for each other.|
|Bless… each other with a word of affirmation. Make the sign of the cross on each other and say to each other: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
