Family Prayer from Morning Air

A Morning Air listener sent this prayer to Sean:

Lord, behold our family here assembled.

We thank you for this house in which we live; for the love that unites us; for the peace given us this day; for the hope which we expect the morrow; for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies that make our life delightful; for all our friends and all our friendly helpers.

Let peace abound in our small gathering.  Give us courage, gaiety and the quiet mind.  Strengthen to us our friends; soften to us our enemies.  Bless us in all our innocent endeavors.  Give us the strength to encounter that which is to come, that we may be brave in peril and, in all changes of fortune, loyal and loving one to another.

We ask of you this help for the sake of your son, Lord Jesus Christ.

 Amen
