Mark 12:29-31 says “Jesus answered, “The most important command is this, Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
As parents, my wife and I are always looking for ways to get our family involved with loving God and loving others. This is what the Family Prayer & Action Journey was born out of, a desire for our family to do more. A few of us had the idea to do something at a time when our families were always together, at meals. The idea for this Prayer Journey is that each evening around the dinner table families would take 2 minutes to learn about the injustice of the world, God’s heart towards those injustices and ways that we can respond.
Our prayer is that in the 3o days it takes to go through this justice journey your family would grow closer together and understand more of God’s heart for justice.
We understand that life can get busy, so if you miss a day just pick it up the next time you gather. Included in the 30 day journey are focus cards that look at issues of injustice, action cards that call you as a family to respond to different injustices, and coupon cards for you to support different justice focussed ministries.
To order your 30 day Family Prayer and Action Journey, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The packets are $7.50 each (plus shipping) or 2 for $15 (including shipping). The cards come with a card holder, and some Steps of Justice stickers (there are 36 cards in the Prayer & Action journey which are 3 1/2″ by 2 1/2″, the size of a baseball/hockey card) Shipping international is extra, call or email for details.
