Fr. Steve begins his preaching series on The Family. This week he explores the understanding of a family prepared and the importance of praying new hearts into our Children. He used the following Scripture verse as a backdrop to how to prepare your family for the world:

Ephesians 3:14-19—Pray for your family like St. Paul

For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that he may grant you, in accord with the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, 17 and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, be rooted and grounded in love, 18 and may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
