*The following is a transcript of Father James Kubicki's Daily Reflection for Sunday, February 7, 2010:
Hello, I'm Father James Kubicki, and a couple of weeks ago, I got an e-mail message from Father Jim Goode, a Franciscan priest who is the founder of the National Day of Prayer for the African American and African Families.
Today is the 21st anniversary of this special day of prayer and I would like to ask you to join me in praying this year's theme:
JESUS CONSECRATE OUR HEARTS AND OUR FAMILIES
Here's the prayer, which Fr. Goode has provided us:
"God of Mercy and Love we place our African American and African Families before You today. May we be proud of our history and never forget those who paid a great price for our liberation. Bless us one by one and keep our hearts and minds fixed on higher ground. Help us to live for you and not for ourselves, and may we cherish and proclaim the gift of life. Bless our parents, guardians and grandparents, relatives and friends. Give us the amazing grace to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Help us, as Your children, to live in such a way that the beauty and greatness of authentic love is re-ected in all that we say and do. Give a healing anointing to those less fortunate, especially the motherless, the fatherless, the broken, the sick and the lonely. Bless our departed family members and friends. May they be led into the light of Your dwelling place where we will never grow old, where we will share the fullness of redemption and shout the victory for all eternity. This we ask in the Precious Name of Jesus, our Savior and Blessed Assurance. Amen. Holy Mary, Mother of Our Families, pray for us."
FATHER JAMES KUBICKI IS THE NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF APOSTLESHIP OF PRAYER.
