Prayer for our Family by Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

Heavenly Father,
you have given us the model of life in the Holy Family of Nazareth.
Help us, O Loving Father, to make our family another Nazareth
where love, peace and joy reign.
May it be deeply contemplative, intensely eucharistic, revived with joy.

Help us to stay together in joy and sorrow in family prayer.
Teach us to see Jesus in the members of our family, 
and may we welcome with an open heart and open arms all those
who visit our humble home.

May the eucharistic heart of Jesus make our hearts humble like his
and help us to carry out our family duties in a holy way.
May we love one another as God loves each one of us,
more and more each day, and forgive each other's faults
as you forgive our sins.

May we see our home a safe haven where love
and compassion are expressed and shared,
may we get to know you ever more clearly,
to follow you ever more nearly
and to love you and others ever more dearly.

Help us, O Loving Father, to take whatever you give
and give whatever you take  with a big smile.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, cause of our joy, pray for us.
St. Joseph, pray for us.
Holy Guardian Angels, be always with us, guide and protect us. Amen.
