Mark 12:25 (your guardian angel?)

03 Jun Mark 12:25 (your guardian angel?)

Let’s welcome God every morning before work by giving ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which is based on Living Faith. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Col. 3:17

When they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but they are like the angels in heaven. Mark 12:25 (full readings)

Living Faith snippets: “When we resurrect into our new life, our relationship with God will be transformed. We will love God passionately…and experience His unconditional love enthusiastically. We will love and admire His entire creation unreservedly. Our joy will be overflowing, and nothing will be able to take our joy away. That is God’s plan for us. Lord, thank you for the gift of life that continues to grow into ever deeper levels of fulfillment.” by Fr Kenneth E. Grabner

Faith Challenge: Let’s challenge each other to joyfully live out the Good News.
* NEW: Pray to know the name of your guardian angel and then embrace that relationship…we are a communion of Saints (physical and spiritual)…here to do God’s will!

* Let’s never forget the horrific reality of abortion (images)…#1 cause of death in America. Let’s courageously share ProLife Truth (John 14:6) to create social tension for exposing abortion’s unjust peace…rebuilding a Culture of Life (Matt 5:16) and setting the unborn free!

Our Prayers: Those who pray together stay together. Fasting ideas in footnote below.
* Prayer to end abortion, abused children, chastity, peace, our enemies, our troops, depression/ despair, prisoners, ProLife politicians, illnesses/injuries, jobs, natural disasters, addictions, Matt Kayser (classmate Lt Rosslyn Schulte was killed), Carla Neal (Dan, Denise, Ruth & Julie), Sue Peters (Wendi Kotlinsky cancer treatment), Carol Nesbitt (cousin Rob Mischel with brain cancer)

Faith Quote: “In Jesus’ love you will find the fulfillment of your deepest aspirations, and you will grow into full spiritual maturity.” John Paul II

Through Christ our Lord,
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)!
