A Prayer for Your Family

Deliver us, good Lord, from the excessive demands of business and social life that limit family relationships, from the insensitivity and harshness of judgment that prevent understanding, from domineering ways and selfish imposition of our will, from softness and indulgence mistaken for love. Bless us with wise and understanding hearts, that we may demand neither too much nor too little, and grant us sure a measure of love that we may nurture our children to that fulness of manhood and womanhood which thou has purposed for them; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Taken from The Book of Worship for Church and Home of The Methodist Church, 1965
