Articles > Marriage and Family: > Heartprints


"And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."1

"Whatever our hands touch... we leave fingerprints. On walls, on furniture, on door knobs, dishes and books. As we touch we leave our identity.

"Oh [God] please wherever I go today... help me leave heartprints—heartprints of compassion, understanding and love. Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern.

"May my heart touch a lonely neighbor, or a runaway daughter, or an anxious mother, or perhaps a dear friend!

"I shall go out today to leave heartprints, and if some one should say, 'I felt your touch,' may that sense be your loving touch through me!"2

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me today and every day so that my life will reflect your likeness so that the people I rub shoulders with will see your love shining through me so that I will leave heartprints from you on them. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."
