Let us pray now for ourselves, our own families, and families across the world.
For members of the community of the church, the family of God, we pray:
For the people of the world, the family of humanity, we pray:
For families suffering loss, division, or hardship, we pray:
For families separated by distance or military service, we pray:
For those who serve families in crisis, we pray:
For ourselves gathered here, the parish family, we pray:
For those who are ill and have asked for our prayers, including, Connie Edwards. May they be blessed and healed in this coming new year, we pray:
For those who have died, and for all our beloved dead and the families that mourn their passing, we pray:
Good and gracious God, watch over and protect us and our homes. Strengthen the love which unites families in peace and joy. We pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
