Blessed are You, eternal God,
King of the universe:
You have called us in Jesus to be Your beloved people,
living pure and blameless lives in Your sight.
Bless + this family who ask for your grace.
Let your Spirit guide their words and deeds,
so that their light may shine before all
and lead all who know them to give You praise.
May their home be filled with the spirit of love,
with the obedience of faith,
and the strength of hope.
Make their lives happy in Your service,
and bring them in Your love to your eternal home.
we praise Your Name,
and ask this blessing through Christ our Lord.
(When performed by a member of the family.)
Bless our home, Father,
and all who live here in peace:
may we all love you.
