Genesis 37:20 (sweet dreams)

13 Mar Genesis 37:20 (sweet dreams)

Welcome God every morning before your work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

We shall then see what comes of his dreams. Genesis 37:20 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “Despite being betrayed by his brothers, thrown into a cistern, sold into slavery and falsely accused of rape, [Joseph] never resorts to revenge. Enemies become friends. He overcomes every obstacle without a hint of vengeance. He seeks no retribution. Joseph triumphs because he relies completely on God’s love and mercy.” by Paul Pennick

Sr. Francelle’s devotion: Works of Mercy.

Faith Challenge: Let’s challenge each other to joyfully live out the Good News. Suggestions?
* NEW: Parents with children at home, kneel down and pray with them each night…fueling sweet dreams for all (see quote below). If you don’t have children at home, kneel down and pray with your spouse or guardian angel, asking God to speak to you in your sweet dreams.

Stations of the Cross (6): Veronica wipes the face of Jesus. Consider attending Stations (Fri evenings during Lent).

* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images). Abortion is #1 cause of death in America.
* NOW (25 Feb-5 Apr): Support the 40 Days for Life campaign by praying by an abortion mill for one hour (Matt 26:40)…let’s defend the voiceless unborn!

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas below.
* Let’s pray for courage to share ProLife Truth to those around us (John 14:6)…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16).
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, lack of faith, illnesses/injuries, jobs, Sue Peters (Carrie), Paul Cote (sister Christine)

Faith Quote: “No father can adequately articulate the experience of watching his sleeping child. Could you look at her and believe that the sum of her existence rests in a mass of cells? Certainly not. But this is exactly how a rank secularist is obliged to view his daughter.” by Meg Meeker, M.D. (author of “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters”)

In God We Trust,
Phil 4:13

* Prayer: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. ‘If you pray that God will move a mountain and He doesn’t, assume Christ wants you to climb it instead.’
* Fasting: Let’s fast from things that take our eyes off Jesus (selfishness, bitterness, being so critical, impatience, gossip, excessive video games, etc) and take on things that fix our eyes on Jesus (selflessness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, patience, understanding, caring, helping, listening).
* Defend the unborn: ‘Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to death; don’t stand back and let them die’ (Prov 24:11). ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you’ (Jer 1:5). ‘It is a great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish’ (Blessed Mother Teresa).
* Evangelization: Let’s make room for unbelievers (be a friend, make a friend, lead friend to Christ) and perpetual re-evangelization of self and those near us, by way of daily prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of selfless love, mercy, and service.
Let’s joyfully invite others to join our LIFE Group…Rich or Pat will gladly add them to the devotions distribution list (Mark 16:15)!
