Holy Women - for the Rosebud, Day 18

Continue to pray from our guiding verse: If your instructions hadn’t sustained me with joy, I would have died in my misery. Psalm 119:92


Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: “Go and gather together all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will do the same. And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.” So Mordecai went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him. Esther 4:15-17

Father in Heaven, thank you for Esther. Raise up Christian women on the Rosebud to call the people to prayer and fasting. Bless these women with your help as they come boldly to your throne of grace in prayer. Deliver their people from spirits who want to destroy them with suicide. We ask this in Jesus' Name. Amen.

What a wonderful sketch of mother and child!

May the most Blessed Mother, the Theotokos, interceed in heaven for the people of the Rosebud Reservation.

May the Holy Spirit, the one Spirit who never lies, speak truth to yearning hearts and breathe new life.

May the Light of Christ shine in the sweat lodges, purifying every desire.

Amen. Amen. Amen.
