Family Prayer

NOTE:  I wrote the following letter to my family and have seen and experienced so many positive changes in my relationships with each and every member of my family.  Please read it and if you feel it can make a positive difference in your life with your family and your relationships then you are welcome to copy it and sign your name as your pledge to your family.  My prayer and wish for you is that you create the relationships you wish for yourself and your family by being the example you want from each of them.  Sincerely, Catherine Martin, written December 2005.

My Prayer and Wish for Our Family


My Pledge to you

 I pray that we become closer and closer as a family united.

I pray that we connect on a deeper and more spiritual level.

I pray that we appreciate and accept each other.

I pray that we love and support each other through thick and thin.

I pray that we not take each other for granted.

I pray that we put judgments aside and truly listen to one another.

I pray that we understand that we are family for a reason
and that we take advantage of that reason.

I pray that we forgive and forget any and all past hurts that we have caused each other,
even if we didn’t intentionally hurt the other.

I pray that we always have good intent when talking and sharing
information with each other.

I pray that we are totally honest with each other and will
not walk on egg shells at the expense of ourselves.

I pray that we really get to know each other and that we show interest
in each other’s lives.

I prayer that we be open to each other’s point of view
especially when that point of view does not match our own..

I pray that we put all of our past struggles and lack of communication behind us
and go forward in a more positive, open, honest, and loving way.

 My Pledge to You

I pledge to you that I will do all that I have prayed for.
I pledge to you that I will honor and cherish you as a loving individual
and a very special gift from God.

I am truly blessed to have you in my life!
