 Introduction by Mary Elizabeth











 Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary to heal the root of any sin within me and to set me free from any lies, so that I can live more fully in my true identity as a beloved child of the Heavenly Father and bride of Christ.

Meditation Song:

“Beloved” by Tenth Avenue North



 Journaling questions after listening to the meditation and meditation song:

 1) Jesus, what lies do You want to uproot within my heart that have prevented me from living out my true identity as your beloved child and bride?  Allow Jesus to reveal His Truth to you and to heal these areas within.

2) Jesus, what are the chains of sin within my heart that You want to break so that I may be set free to live more fully for You?
