A prayer for family life

God of compassion,

whose Son Jesus Christ, the child of Mary,

shared the life of a home in Nazareth,

and on the cross drew the whole human family to himself:

strengthen us in our daily living

that in joy and in sorrow

we may know the power of your presence

to bind together and to heal;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

A prayer for international unrest

Almighty Father,

whose will is to restore all things

in your beloved Son, the King of all:

govern the hearts and minds of those in authority,

and bring the families of the nations,

divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin,

to be subject to his just and gentle rule;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

.

Heavenly Father, You console and lead us in times of doubt and confusion,
May we follow the light of your love and spread hope now and at all times. Amen
