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 think about one person whom you want to pray for all week long. Every night during your FAITH5 prayer time include that person (or those people). If you want, let them know you are praying for them!
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… The Joy of the Lord is your strength… (Nehemiah 8:10)|
|Talk… about this passage in light of your day…your high and your low. What drained you of strength today? What does it mean for you today that the joy of the Lord is your strength?|
|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.|
