A Prayer of Love: December 20

Let us pray:

God our Mother, 
Help us in this Advent season of planning to be present to each other, and to the people we call family. 
Hold us in the complications, the schedules, the pressures. 
Heal us in our grief for family as it used to be, and hear our hope for family, as we continue to do the work of making it, together, through the holidays. Amen 

Written by Rev. Dr. Chris S. Davies, team leader, Faith Education, Innovation, and Formation
