Prayer of Family

Lord God, thank You for family
For the ones You gave us and the ones we made for ourselves
For the naked vulnerability of self we share with the ones who know us best
May we never cease to be amazed
By the ones we sometimes forget to see
May their existence be a miracle every day
Thank You for the times when their faces show us what “home” means
Grant us hearts to love well and without qualification
May we give each other our presence and not just our time
And see that our lives are best lived together
AMEN.
