PRAY FOR THE FAMILY

Today when the family is facing all kinds of challenges and difficulties from within and from without, we need people who will stand in the gap for families. Pray and (if you can) fast for strong marriages and for strong families. Pray also for the work of the Centre for Marriage and Family that we may be faithful and empowered to fulfill our mission.

 

Below is a prayer for the family which you can pray along with us each day:

Prayer for the Family
by St. John Paul II the Great

 

Lord God, from you every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. Father, you are Love and Life.

Through your Son, Jesus Christ, born of woman, and through the Holy Spirit, fountain of divine charity,

grant that every family on earth may become for each successive generation a true shrine of life and love.

Grant that your grace may guide the thoughts and actions of husbands and wives for the good of their families and of all the families in the world.

Grant that the young may find in the family solid support for their human dignity and for their growth in truth and love.

Grant that love, strengthened by the grace of the sacrament of marriage, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass.

Through the intercession of the Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that the Church may fruitfully carry out her worldwide mission in the family and through the family.

Through Christ our Lord, who is the Way, the Truth and the Life forever and ever.

Amen.
