In the belief that the family that prays as one
becomes one in the Father,

Secular Franciscan Order

encourages your family to pray daily
the Prayer For A Family.

The Holy Family 

Prayer For A Family

 O Dear JESUS, I humbly implore
You to grant Your special graces
to our Family.  May our home be the
shrine of peace, purity, love, labor, and faith.
I beg You, Dear Jesus, to protect and bless
all of us, absent and present,
living and dead.

 O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus, and
our Mother, pray to Jesus for our Family,
for all the Families of the world,
to guard the cradle of the newborn,
the schools of the young and their vocations.

 Blessed Saint Joseph,
holy guardian of Jesus and Mary, assist us
by your prayers in all the necessities of life.

Ask of Jesus that special grace which He
granted to you, to watch over our home
at the pillow of the sick and the dying,
so that with Mary and with you,
heaven may find our Family unbroken
in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Amen.
