Today, we pray for our relatives
Lord Jesus, we surrender to You today members of our extended family. We pray that strife within our homes is healed and relationships are washed in Your Precious Blood and mended. May we learn to love them as our own, just as You decided they should be our own. Let us hold each other’s hand and be accountable for one another. May every negative thought be surrendered at the foot of Your cross today. Bless our dear ones to come closer to You and to each other. May we always bless and never curse our families. Amen.
Collect: O God, strength of those who hope in you, graciously hear our pleas, and, since without you mortal frailty can do nothing, grant us always the help of your grace, that in following your commands we may please you by our resolve and our deeds. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
