Prayer for My Family

Lord Jesus, you were born into a human family.  You know our joys and struggles.  Bless our family with your love.  Refresh and strengthen us in the happiness of our good times.  Comfort and assist us in our painful times.  Fill our home with the burning charity you showed us on the Cross, that our family life may reflect the joy and peace of your Resurrection.
