“For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.” 2 Timothy 1:6
“In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:1-5
Let Us Pray the Conference Prayer
Heavenly Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name, we praise Thee, and acknowledge Thee, God of all creation.
We give you thanks for you are a Mighty God! We honor you for who You are, and for all that You do! We seek your blessings and graces upon us as we prepare for our CFC USA National Conference on July 6-8 in Leesburg, Virginia.
We ask for your protection and to stand firm in our Faith upon all the activities leading up to this event. We pray that all members of Couples for Christ, and other invited delegates will attend this momentous occasion. Father God, please remove all obstacles in our way. Provide us all that we need in all our preparations.
As our souls rejoice in You, lead us in a new song of praise to celebrate You once again. May we say yes to the invitation to the feast, and be filled. Like water was turned into wine, turn our hearts & spirits into the vessels and witnesses of Your Love. As Mama Mary had shown us, we are your servants, called to follow you with joy and courage. In faith and hope, may we do as Jesus tells us.
Let Your Holy Spirit light our way, to inspire us, and to move us to exalt You above all things.
We ask this through your Only Son, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.
+ Hail Mary + Glory Be.
