HAPPY THANKSGIVING

FROM OUR SOUTH EAST MINNESOTA RETROUVAILLE FAMILY TO YOURS!




Take a few moments of every day this month and share with your spouse or a family member what you're thankful for and why you're thankful for them. 



May we give thanks to He who makes all things possible. 






HOLIDAY SEASON STRESS

 Christmas is known around the world as a season of good cheer and an occasion to celebrate the birth of Christ. During the same time, many marriages are faced with hardships of loneliness, stress, loss of loved ones, financial burdens and more. May these scriptures provide a source of comfort: 


YOU ARE LOVED

Isaiah 54: 10 - "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed says the Lord who has compassion on you." 


GOD WILL PROVIDE

Philippians 4:19 - "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." 


HE HEALS

Psalm 147:3 - "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."


HE SUSTAINS YOU

Psalm 55:22 - "Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved."


TALK TO GOD IN PRAYER

Philippians 4:6 - "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God."

Prayer for SE MN Retrouvaille

Heavenly Father, Author of marriage, through Your divine providence You have brought us together to join in Your mission to heal hurting marriages and families. Shower us with the graces we need to serve You together as a community of disciples. Fill us with Your divine mercy and love so we can pour it out on all those You put on Your path. We trust that You will provide the financial and manual resources needed to accomplish this mission. Let us always keep You the center of this awesome, healing ministry. 


Holy family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph, patron saint of Retrouvaille, pray for us.
