Pope Saint John Paul the Great Prayer Card


Prayer of John Paul II for Families

Lord God, from You every family in Heaven and

on earth takes its name.  Father, You are love and

life.  Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, born of woman,

and through the Holy Spirit, the fountain of divine charity,

grant the every family on earth may become for each successive

generation a true shrine of life and love.

Grant that Your grace may guide the thoughts and

actions of husbands and wives for the good of their

families and of all the families in the world.

Grant that the young may find in the family solid

support for their human dignity and for their growth

in truth and love.

Grant that love, strengthened by the grace of the

sacrament of marriage, may prove mightier than all

the weaknesses and trials through which our families

sometimes pass.

Through the intercession of the Holy Family of

Nazareth, grant that the Church may fruitfully carry

out her worldwide mission in the family and through

the family.

We ask this of You, Who is life, truth and love with

the Son and the Holy Spirit.
