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

encouragement.

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.
