TODAY’S PRAYER – April 24, 2017
Abba, Father in heaven, Sovereign and Mighty God, You are the maker of heaven earth, the sea and that is in them. We praise You and thank You, for being our savior and protector. We pray for your presence and power of Christ’s resurrection. We pray that Christ’s resurrection may continue to reign in us and among us as we continue this post -resurrection journey. While we have the faith and trust in Your love, we still are besieged by oppositions, threats, resistance, and, rage, just like what the gentiles waged against your people. Please be with us and protect us. We are grateful for the baptism we have received, giving us the new life in Christ, given by water and Holy Spirit. We believe your calling is leading us to become important part of building up Your reign on earth.
Father, as we recall the newness of life that came upon us on the day of baptism, we acknowledge that this is the only way we could be born from above, this is the only way we can be born again. Help us to live this new life in Christ. We pray that we may do justice to our being “people of God,” people of the resurrection, by living faithfully the dignity and freedom as children of God, by loving as Christ loves, by being the salt of the earth and light of the world, and by living a new existence as Your children in the Church today. Like Peter and John who suffered persecutions for preaching Your gospel, we ask You to protect us and strengthen our will to respond in prayer of praise to You, when we face the same persecutions. Strengthen us by Your Holy Spirit that we may boldly love our new life in You. Encourage and remind us that the Spirit is as alive in us today as it was in the early Church. We ask this through Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
We ask this through Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.

“Filipino Families are Called to be Brave Missionary Disciples“
We become bold missionary disciples when:
- we root all our actions and decisions to the reality of God's love for us.
- we cross over the other side of life where God wishes us to be.
- we allow ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit.
