Dear Lord, I pray that my brothers and sisters in Christ may be beloved and longed for by you. May they be a source of joy and crown for you. Help them to stand firm in you, Lord, and to follow your ways. May they be filled with your love and grace, and may they be a shining example of your goodness to the world. I pray that they may be strengthened in their faith and that they may always be rooted in you. Thank you for the gift of their presence in my life, and may we all continue to grow in our love for you. Amen.
