Pro-Life Prints :: Praying for Others

by | Feb 25, 2017 | Art, Life Is Precious, Pro-Life | 1 comment

Pro-Life Prints is a brilliant addition to the Culture of Life Studies Program. It has been a fun and engaging hands-on way to teach our little ones more about the dignity of every human life!

We worked through the four lessons the last week of January (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3) following the presidential inauguration and leading up to this year’s annual March for Life, but our youngest ended up coming down with a virus on Day 4 so we finished the final lesson in shifts. It was the first thing he wanted to do as soon as he was feeling better again the following Monday, but it’s taken me nearly a month to get back to sharing the photos with you all!

This fourth and final lesson focused on Praying for Others. We talked about the importance of praying for friends, family, and even strangers. The lesson also included a special tip to help us remember everyone for whom we need to pray, including ourselves.

.: Pray for the World :.

The whole world needs our prayers. 

“Yet, Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay and You are the Potter: we are all the work of Your hand.” – Isaiah 64:7

My Life with God by Father Lovasik

.: Praying for Others :.

Use your finger to remember who to pray for. 

I loved the explanations used in the lesson! In summary, the thumb is for family and those closest to you, the index finger is for teachers and all those who instruct you, the middle/tallest finger is for all those in authority, the ring finger (which is the weakest finger) is for unborn babies and all of the weakest members of our society, and finally the pinkie is a reminder to pray for ourselves last. After praying for all the others we will be better able to pray for ourselves and ask God for what we truly need.

“Pray for one another, that you may be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful.” – James 5:16

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
