THE COUPLE THAT PRAYS TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER.

June 16th– June 22nd 2019
The Most Holy Trinity
Jesus said to his disciples: “When the Spirit of truth comes he will lead you to the complete truth”. The most profound truth of all is about the nature of the true God, a Trinity of Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This truth is far beyond our understanding but is implanted close into our hearts by God’s Spirit. The second profound truth is that we are made in God’s image. This truth is also far beyond our understanding but is capable of being lived out by us through the power of the same Spirit living in us. It is in the intimate relationships of marriage and family that we especially share in the intimate life of the true God. But we need to learn to live there with an ever-greater reverence and love. We also live in God through our community with one another as Christians. This needs to be characterised by energy and enthusiasm for the world as the kingdom of God.
Morning Prayer, when together
Father, you sent your Word to bring us truth
and your Spirit to make us holy.
Through them we come to know the mystery of your life.
Help us to worship you, one God in three Persons,
by proclaiming and living our faith in you.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
During the day, when apart
Lord our God, make our love holy.
Through our sacrament of marriage
make us a perfect offering to you.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
Evening/Night Prayer together
Lord God, we worship you
a Trinity of Persons, one eternal God.
May our faith and the love we share
bring us health of mind and body.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
