Prayer for my family
Lord be besides us, all every day
Guiding and leading us gently always.
Lord be above us, help us to see
The hope of the future, of all we could be.
Lord be beneath us, carry us when
We’re too shattered or tired to really have strength.
Lord be ahead of us, smoothing our paths
Protecting and blessing the places we pass.
Lord be behind us, healing our wounds,
Forgiving our mistakes and making us new.
Jesus, be within us, this family is yours
Now and forever, you are our Lord.

Prayer for Son’s Protection
I give my precious son to you.
You have journeyed with me, from his birth till now.
Come walk with him, to protect, keep and help him at this difficult time.
Give me all that I need to love and support him.
I surrender to you my concerns, worries and regrets.
Please wipe away my guilt and fill me afresh with new vision and hope.
Bless his life with contentment and joy,
And may his cup overflow with goodness and love.
I entrust him to you.
