"Jacob was the father of Joseph,the husband of Mary.''
Matthew 1 : 1
Nowadays people love to research their ancestry. Here in Ireland it is big business, finding out the ancestral lines and getting to know one’s true identity from the past. Before time began God had chosen the ancestors of Jesus. Through his family tree Jesus becomes part of a human family with roots in the past like all of us.
Heavenly Father I ask you to go back through all in my bloodline and the bloodlines connected to all my family and relatives and forgive the wrongs, heal the illnesses, bind the evil deeds. I ask you to heal any hurt that I caused even unknowingly. Fill me with the blessing of your love and make me an ever truer family member. Amen
