FAMILY PRAYER FOR GRACE

God, Our Father, the Father of the Greatest Family of all the heavens and earth and of all there is. We thank you for this opportunity to gather together in one another’s company as one universal family, but even as individual families. We thank you for the light you bring to this gathering. The Light of Jesus shines on each one as we recognize he is the husband and we are His bride, a part of the family of Thee.

Please grant us the vision to see the highest in one another, and grant us the opportunity to continue to be there for each other in good times, as well as not-so-great-times.
Give us strength and fortitude to ride the tides of change, and empower us always to be nurturing and loving with one another. Open our spiritual eyes that we may see one another for who we truly are… and love one other in the same spirit.

May sadness, disappointment and anger be minimal or removed from our lives; may happiness, positive thoughts and good experiences together be bountiful and overflowing. May we always cope, and hope, with each other… with tender grace and ever increasing mercy.

We thank thee for this delicious dinner, prepared with hands of love which you formed and created. Allow us to realize that as we are being fed, we must feed the hungry, the spiritual malnourished. May all consumed here tonight fill us with health and well-being, and may we be consumed by your glory and honor and praise which is bestowed on all those who and trust in thee and live for thee. Help us to live each moment as though we are in your presence. Let our lives be a life song for thee. For the wonderful family of Signature Healthcare and all those involved, we pray this in our wonderful Eternal Father’s name. Amen.
