Lord, bless this family and. Give them hearts that follow after you. Give them the strength to not be afraid. Give them the courage to stand up to what is right. Produce within them an attitude of integrity, giving their lives to giving you glory. Protect each family member under the shadow of your wings. Lord, help them to find their own strength in you. Increase their unity and peace as we all seek to follow after you. Amen
