A Prayer for the Families

God of Mothers and Fathers

Send strength to those who are apart tonight

Gentleness to those who are fighting for freedom

Yearning to be together.

God of our sons and daughtersHelp us remember that you are the God of their sons and daughters

Who speak to you in languages of their own

Praying for the very same thing.

We remember the cry of Rachel weeping for her children, the bitterness of Hagar as she watched Ishmael sent away

And we do not forget.

Spread a shelter of peace over families that have been torn apart

Send comfort to those children who tonight sleep away from the protective arms of their parents

Renew in us the will to fight for the sons and the daughters, the mothers and fathers.
