#550 - I've Been Neglecting My Family
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, I have been neglecting my spouse and children. I have been spending time outside the home with friends. I have been a workaholic, working in my office throughout the evening. I've missed many meals. I've missed tucking my kids into bed. I've missed playing ball in the backyard. I've missed school plays and recitals. I've missed the kid's soccer games. Why? I'm searching for meaning and fulfillment in something other than being a devoted spouse and parent. Father, I can earn a great fortune. I can become powerful and influential in society. I can have fond memories with friends. However, it will all be meaningless when my spouse and children have no interest in spending time with me. Neglecting the family has repercussions. Every time. If I could do it all over again, I'd sacrifice my career to give my family the devotion they deserve. Father, help me to change today before it's too late. Help me to show my family I'll sacrifice other things to spend time with them. Help me to have touching moments that my family cherishes throughout their lives. Help me to surrender my life to You so that the Holy Spirit can give me the love, kindness, gentleness, compassion, grace, generosity, mercy, and love that will endear me to my family's heart. Amen.
