*UNISON  PRAYER    

In You, O God, every family on earth receives its name. 
Illumine the homes of this earth with the light of Your love,
granting  courage to those who are hurt or lonely,
endurance for those who care for sick family members,
and wisdom to those in fearful times of change. 
We thank You for gifts of love we have received from mother,
 father, spouse, child, or companion.
As we have been loved by You and others, so may we love.
Grant us Your peace, through Jesus, the Christ.
Amen.
