Father, watch over your family
and keep us safe in your care,
for all our hope is in you.
Keep your family safe, O Lord, with unfailing care,
that, relying solely on the hope of heavenly grace,
they may be defended always by your protection.
God our Father, you give us a share
in the one bread and the one cup
and make us one in Christ.
Help us to bring your salvation
and joy to all the world.
O God, who have willed that we be partakers
in the one Bread and the one Chalice,
grant us, we pray, so to live
that, made one in Christ,
we may joyfully bear fruit
for the salvation of the world.
