Lord, I’m struggling. My family has changed in ways I’m finding hard to accept. Give me your peace, and the grace to understand that no one’s family is perfect. Help me recognize that everyone has limitations. Show me, and all my family members, how to adjust to what has happened. Teach me how to love the members of my family more, and to be more grateful for the ways they show their love for me. You have the power to bring good from every situation. Help me to grow from this experience. Amen
