Prayer for one’s Family

O Jesus, our Lord and our brother!

We recommend our family and all that is ours to Your protection;

We confide all to Your love.

Fill our house with blessings, even as You filled the holy house of Nazareth with Your presence;

before all else, keep sin far from it.

Do You alone reign by Your law, by Your most holy love, and by the exercise of every Christian virtue.

Let all of us obey You, love You, and study how to copy in our own lives Your example, that of Mary Your Mother, and that of Your blameless guardian,

St. Joseph. Keep all evils and misfortunes far from us and our house, but grant that we may be ever in harmony with Your divine will, even in the sorrows which You send to us. Finally, grant us the grace to live in perfect harmony and in the fullness of charity toward our neighbor. Grant that every one of us may deserve by a holy life the comfort of Your holy sacraments at the hour of death.
Amen.
