Prayer with the Family
Dear Jesus, I pray for my family and place each of them in your care, love and protection. We ask the Holy Family of Nazareth to be our inspiration and model, and to protect our family as we begin each new day. May our family be strong in times of trial, be united when crosses and trials come our way, and support each other when some feel in need of comfort. May we create times of joy and fun, memories of love and care, and rejoice with each other as we journey each day. Amen.
