Ep. 53 : A Prayer for Belonging

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we’ve invited Korean American author Tasha Jun to lend us her words this week. In this prayer for belonging, we are reminded that we are not outsiders to God, who divinely knit us together. Let us pray to the One who makes visible what is kept invisible that our children would feel seen and that their stories—and ours as parents—would reflect their heritage and the hope and survival of those who came before.

With short, welcoming episodes, Liturgies for Parents invites parents like you to take a breath and find comfort in the prayers of another. Each week, you'll hear some scripture, a short prayer, and a gentle reminder of God's presence in your life from Kayla Craig, a mom of four and author of To Light Their Way: A Collection of Prayers & Liturgies for Parents.

In a weary world, Liturgies for Parents offers a nuanced and nurturing moment of reprieve, inviting all who are raising kids to breathe and remember that God is with you. Liturgies for Parents will leave you feeling a bit more centered -- and a bit more rooted in God's big love for you, your family, and your neighbors, too.
