An Act of Hope {Printable}

Recently I made printable graphics of the prayer An Act of Hope to give as gifts. Spring is the season when many children receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion for the first time. Through the Sacrament of Holy Communion, we unite ourselves with Christ in a very intimate way. When we receive the Holy Eucharist, the actual body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ, He strengthens us. 

I thought the prayer An Act of Hope would be an excellent prayer to give to children upon receiving their First Communion. It reminds them that by having a relationship with Jesus they have no reason to fear or despair. He is always with them, strengthening them. With grace from the Lord, they can trust that when they choose wrong over right their sins will be forgiven, all they have to do is ask. With the Redeemer's mercy, they can have eternal life in heaven. By having hope in God's promises, the future is always something to look forward to with joy. 

I made two slightly different graphics with PicMonkey. I saved them to my computer, uploaded them to Shutterfly, and ordered them in an 8x10 size. They turned out great! 

I am sharing them here, in case you would like to print them, too. Just save them to your computer and print them yourself or with a company you trust. Enjoy!
