Oh, dear Jesus, be deeply embedded in our conversations today. Strengthen our family structures. Mend any rifts. Restore broken and bruised relationships. May we see you in each other. May others see you in us. I ask in your precious and powerful name, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20 ESV)
