Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of my family and for the many joys and blessings that have come to me through each of them.
Help me to appreciate the uniqueness of each while celebrating the diversity of all.
Through the intercession of Archangel Michael, I ask you to protect my family from the evils of this world.
Grant us all the power to forgive when we have been hurt, and the humility to ask for forgiveness when we have caused pain.
Unite us in the love of your son, Jesus, that we may be a sign of the unity you desire for all humankind.
Archangel Michael, intercede for us.
