Almighty God and Father, we come before You, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name; and we pray that You will bestow upon our family Your gifts, in keeping with the riches of Your glory.
May You strengthen us inwardly through the help of Your Holy Spirit.
May Christ Jesus Your Son, dwell in our hearts through faith, and may love be the root and foundation of our lives.
And finally, may You give us the grace to be able to grasp fully, with all the holy ones, the breadth and length and height and depth of Christ’s love. Amen (Eph.3:13-18)
