How to Energize Your Family

How to Energize Your Family's Faith: Family Reflection Video

Why pray?  |  Love thy Neighbor

Why couldn’t the apostles heal the boy?

Jesus is faced today with a father asking for healing on his son’s behalf. He asked Jesus for this healing after the apostles could not complete the task. In looking at why they were unable, Jesus says they did not energize and activate their healing power through prayer.

Jesus offers us freedom from sin, bondage, evil habits, and addictions as long as we have faith. Faith is a free gift of God and the human act of believing in Him. Families, God will work daily miracles in our lives, provided we pray with trusting faith.

When does your family pray together?

Pray with your family today. Keep trust in your hearts, and the Lord will answer!
