Family can take many forms—beyond our blood relatives. Family can also encompass friends, neighbors, and coworkers. Now is a good time to pray for those whom we call family.
Dear God, life can be a challenge,
but you’ve surrounded me with
people who warm my heart
and nurture my spirit.
Keep them safe and sound in your loving care.
Let me never forget that family, whatever shape it takes,
is a ready source of warmth when I am cold.
Share this prayer with a friend or family member who needs it most.
