In honor of National Stepfamily Day (September 16th), I wanted to share this Prayer For A Blended Family with you. My husband gave me this framed prayer on our fifth wedding anniversary. It hangs proudly in our kitchen and I smile every time I read it. It is my hope that this prayer will be a blessing to you. Being the stepmother in a blended family brings both joys and challenges. It is my sincere hope that you will celebrate the blessings of your family today!
Prayer for a Blended Family
Lord, in Your providence,
You have provided the family
as a place where people can
experience love, learn important
life lessons, and find unequaled
May Your design be reflected
in this new family.
I pray that You would unite and
bind this family together;
even in togetherness, may there
be space to be individuals.
Help each person to love, respect,
and encourage others
within the family.
May the care and hospitality
within the family be extended
to those outside; that others
might see Your presence.
