“Ask and it will be given to you;

Read this with your family.
As we journey into Holy Week, we are preparing our hearts to enter into the time of Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection. It was on Palm Sunday that Jesus entered into Jerusalem. He knew that soon he would be carrying his cross to Calvary, and so he was preparing his heart for what was to come.
How often do we take the time to pray and thank Jesus for everything he does for us? When we pray, it means we’re spending time with Jesus. Jesus loves it when we spend time with him. St. Therese was someone who tried to make everything she did a prayer to God, even washing the dishes or doing the laundry. Jesus wants to be a part of your day wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing. The next time you’re doing your chores, just say a little prayer and ask Jesus to come and be with you. He wants to be part of everything you do.
- What is prayer? Talking and listening to God, praising him, telling him what’s on your heart, asking him for what you need, etc.
- Who are some people that you would like to pray for this week?
Pray together every day this week. Taking the time to pray as a family is one of the most important ways to stay close to Jesus. It might be difficult at first, but find the time this week and stick with it. Holy Week is a great time to go deeper in your family’s prayer life. If it’s something new, don't be afraid to start small. Take a few moments to gather together and read through these short reflections. Let your kids take turns leading the prayer times and see if they could add a little faith sharing on something they read or learned that day.
