We Are Part of the Family

Heavenly Father

We praise you because when you called us to be your children it allowed us to call you Father. This knowledge gives us inner strength so we can experience every moment how high and wide and deep your love is for us your children.

We thank you for the joy of Christian family life but know that this is not so for everyone. For families who are unhappy through neglect or abuse, saddened by separation, overcome by worry, who are homeless and penniless we pray for them a sense of value and worth.

For your world-wide family suffering famine, drought, war and slavery, move your Spirit among them bringing a sense of hope.

Help us, we pray, to live our lives in the spirit of your family.

Amen
