Bless My Child
Every mother prays, even if only, "Lord, give me patience!" Just as children need our love at every age, so too they always need our prayers. Challenged by her children's school principal asking, "If not us, who; if not here, where; if not now, when," Julie Cragon began praying specifically for each of her children. Just as children need our love at every age, so too they always need our prayers. Cragon provides prayers for every stage of their growth, beginning even before they are born and going all the way to the point when they are becoming moms or dads themselves.
Jesus at My Side: 365 Reflections on His Words (Our Sunday Visitor, 2012) provides readers with the words of Jesus Himself, combined with a short meditation and a prayer challenge – one for every day of the year. “This is not an interpretation of the Gospels,” stated Cragon, “but a meditation on what Jesus is saying to us today.” In the meditations, Cragon relates each one of Jesus’ quotes to something in her own life – children, work, relationships – and encourages readers to do the same.
