God Created Family

We need Mother's Day more than ever!  The family unit, mother, father and children, is created by God!  Sadly, the God designed family unit is under attack in so many ways.  So we need days like Mother's Day to refocus our attention on the truth!  God created family!

As we celebrate Mother's Day tomorrow, let's not only give thanks for our own mom and the mothers we know, let's give thanks for God's design of the family, and let's pray for all families everywhere.  Let's pray for renewal of families where they are broken.  Let's pray and care for those who grieve.  And let's be ready to take in those who have no loving family here on earth.

Gracious Father, you bless the family and renew your people.  Enrich husbands and wives, parents and children more and more with your grace, that, strengthening and supporting each other, they may serve those in need and be a sign of the fulfillment of your perfect kingdom;  where, with your Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, you live and reign, one God through all ages.   (from the Lutheran Book of Worship and its wedding service)
