|The Holy Family.|
Lord Jesus Christ, we lift our hearts to you, that you may prepare them and plant in them your wisdom and truth. Let us rise to give thanks for our God for all your care of us through the night, and for your guidance throughout the day.
Holy One, bring your people together in love and strength of heart. May we deal charitably and peaceably with each other, and welcome each other in Your Holy Name.
Send forth the Holy Spirit to unite us to your will, O God, and to inflame us with that same mercy you have freely given to us. Bless and keep all those who are in distress or sorrow; let you love wash over us as a healing balm.
Blessed Savior, open our hearts to receive your blessing, and anoint and protect those we now name.
