19 November 2019
Heavenly Father, we ask for your presence in families in our neighbourhood.
We pray for strength and understanding between the marriages in our neighbourhood.
We ask for loving, strong bonds between the children, teenagers, adults, and grandparents.
We pray that each branch of the family would demonstrate love for one another. Amen
