Noah’s Family: The Noah Window at Chartres (5)

Families have a way of discussing what is going on. I have learned that in addition to talking things out, praying for discernment is helpful.

My Prayer

God, May the time we spend together help me to respond to my loved ones in the best ways possible. May we all hear Your voice more clearly.

Scriptural Touchstone:

The sons of Noah

These are the descendants of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation; Noah walked with God. Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Genesis 6:9-10 (NRSV)

As you bring to mind and heart each member of your family, what prayers are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.


The thirteenth century stained glass window (1205-1215) which relates the stories from Genesis 6-9 about Noah, his family, and the flood. It is the westernmost window in the north side aisle at the Chartres Cathedral in France. The images in this post are found in the fourth row from the bottom.
