Dear God, I thank You for the gift of home and family. Nothing has ever made me feel content than being around my parents, my siblings and even our pets. I thank You for the opportunity I get to spend time with them from the conversation we have during shared meals or the large occasions where we are able to celebrate with extended family members. I am thankful for the laughs we shared, the tears we shed, the battles we fought and the pains we felt as a family. Nothing has been easy but I am grateful that I have a family to lean on.
I thank You for my parents. Thank You for demonstrating Your love for me through my father and my mother. Their love and care always warm my heart. I pray that You will continue to sustain them with strength as they work and wisdom as they make decisions everyday. I pray that You will keep on uniting them as one and that they will continue to love each other with You at the center. Grant them good health and long life.
I thank You for my siblings. I am grateful to have them. I pray that You will establish us to become God-fearing and obedient children. Help us to always honor and respect our parents even as we grow older. Keep the sweet bond that we have as brothers and sisters and do not allow anything or anyone to divide us. Help us overcome our immaturities that we may grow in character.
I pray that Jesus will always be the foundation of this family. Help us to raise up generations of God-fearing children. Unite us in the love of Christ. Protect us from all evil. Provide all our needs. This I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
