Day 2: Novena for Families, Virtue of Faith

Day 2 Intercessory Prayer: Virtue of Faith

Noah, beg of the Lord that He might strengthen families in the virtue of faith. May He help us seal any fractures in our marriages with the love of the Holy Spirit. May He help us pass along to our children the truths of our Catholic Faith and the love of the Lord. Let us reaffirm our baptismal promises and marital covenant, and in so doing renew the face of the earth. May we be witnesses to the rainbow God has stretched across the sky showing His covenantal love for us. Noah, may we faithfully follow your example of trust and perseverance, sending forth our children to carry the Catholic Faith into the world.

Prayer of the Family: The Threshold of Faith

God, our loving Father and Creator, You invite families to participate in Your unique plan for salvation by entrusting to us the lives of our children, inscribing Your Divine image in their souls. This image or “icon” illuminates our families with Your face, transfiguring our homes into domestic churches. You stand at our thresholds knocking, waiting for us to throw open our doors and invite You to enter more fully into our family life. Let us not ignore Your repeated knocking, but welcome You, embracing the graces You wish to give. May these graces enable us to pass on the gift of our Catholic Faith to our children, giving them what they need for salvation and growth in holiness. It is from the threshold of our domestic church that our families will bring glory to You and hope to the world.

Our Lady of Good Help, Queen of Heaven, implore your Son to strengthen the virtue of faith in our families in order to teach our children what they should know for salvation.
