Practicing the presence

Who is your family? Are you estranged from any member of your family? Make it a point each day this week to pray for God’s blessings on any and all family members from whom you might be estranged.

During this week send a card by mail to these family members and tell them you are praying God will bless them. If you feel the gesture would be misunderstood, then send the card anonymously. However, emphasis you are praying God’s love and blessings over them.


  • Prayers of thanksgiving and petition
  • Journaling or silent reflection
  • “The Lord’s Prayer”
