Father, this month, we enter the holy season of Lent. During these holy days, we want to grow in our trust and love of you. May your will be done in our family. All continue with the Lord’s Prayer: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. Next, the parent invites each family member to mention some worry that he or she wants to entrust to the Lord, or some event that strengthened his or her faith that God never forgets us. After each person finishes speaking, all respond with: Father, not my will but yours be done. (Luke 22:42) Or: Jesus, I trust in you. The parent who is leading the prayer concludes with: Lord our God, you know what makes us worry, and you know all our needs. We entrust our lives to you, and the concerns of those we love. Take care of us, and help us to trust in your loving care. Amen. All make the sign of the cross. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
