Would you mind praying for lukewarm and lost souls today?
I’m feeling a bit on edge. And I can’t shake it. I know fear is not of the Lord, and I’m turning to prayer for solace.
A friend of one of my children has lost faith. I recognize that we all go through different seasons in our life, and that questioning one’s faith can actually be a call to dig deaper into the questions that arise.
But it still scares me.
It scares me because I fear for this child’s soul (because in my mind anyone under 30 is child I need to look out for). It scares me because of the influence they might have over my own child.
All this fear is of unknown – not knowing what role I fill, unsure about what to say/do.
What do we know? We know God is Love. We know he sent us His Son. He gave us the sacraments.
What can I do? I can pray, I can ask for prayers, I can see this as an opportunity to grow closer to my own child as we talk through what’s going on.
So now I’m tampering my fear with 1) What I know, and 2) What I can do, and leave the rest to God.
This also reminds me to start another Divine Mercy Novena.
Thank you for your prayers!
