A Prayer, and something to think about

I haven't been able to join in Spiritual Sunday in a while. Today I'm sharing two things that were in our church bulletin.

The first is a prayer to pray before going on the internet.

Almighty and eternal God, who created us in Your image and taught us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful, especially in the divine person of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we ask You, that during our journeys through the internet, we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to You and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reflection Questions for Family Discussion

1. Share a time in your life when your heart seemed like a mixture of belief and lack of faith at the same time.

2. Relate an experience that brought peace to your life in the middle of difficulties.

3. Who do you know who lives and acts as if Christ is truly alive? How does this person affect you?

Go here for more inspiration.

The internet prayer is very good. It would be great if everyone would pray a similar prayer. There are so many things on the internet that can be harmful. This is a good suggestion and the questions for family discussion sounds like a good idea too. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Hi Katherine,
What a wonderful prayer to pray before surfing the 'Net or blogging in general. We can and do affect many lives along the way. Thank you for sharing this with us today.
