God of all times and places, we ask you to attend to this prayer and the voices, heard and silent, who pray it.
For families who struggle to speak to one another in love,
For families who delight in being together,
For families who want to live with less in order that others might have more,
For families who do not have enough to dress warmly or to go to bed without hunger,
For families who read your word together,
For families who find it hard to spend any time together,
For my family,
For the families in my community,
For the families of your prayer warriors,
For the families of the members of CAF,
For the families in our congregations,
For the families around the world,
For all families, we pray that love will grow in them so that love will shine through them.
