By Stephen W. Hiemstra
Our heavenly Father,
Thank you for our families,
the ones who raise and care for us when we are small and weak
and cannot care for ourselves.
Break the power of evil words and weak DNA to hurt our family.
Cast out sin and the power of evil to influence them.
Bless our parents, our siblings, our aunts and uncles, and grandparents
with faith and wisdom and your Holy Spirit
that their example may reflect Christ’s teaching to the whole community.
Through the power of your Holy Spirit,
may their lips always profess thanks and lift up the good around them
and may we care for our families even more dearly than they cared for us.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
