Prayer Resources:

Prayer of blessing
May this family be protected from harm, misfortune or sadness
May we enjoy the privilege of spending time together
To share joy, celebrate happy occasions and to be close to each other when there is need for comfort or support May we be blessed with good health and trust in God’s love for each one of us.Amen (Author unknown)

Prayer of Protection
The Light of God surround us
The Love of God enfold us
The Power of God protect us
The Presence of God watch over us
The Mind of God guide us
The Life of God flow through us
The Power of God reside in us
The Joy of God uplift us
The Strength of God renew us
The Beauty of God inspire us 
Wherever we are, God is. 
(Written by James Freeman for all the soldiers in World War II)

Family Prayer
We thank you Lord for all you give;
The food we eat, the lives we live.
And to our loved ones far away
Please send your blessings Lord today. 
Help us all to live our days
With thankful hearts and loving ways. (Author unknown)

Parting Prayer
We leave our family in your hands God
We pray for wonderful blessings
May everyone feel you presence, your strength and your love. (Author unknown)
