For those at home
O God, Father in Heaven,
who hast set Thy earthly children in families
and given to them the joys of human companionship,
bless, we beseech Thee, those from whom we are separated.
May our mutual love bridge the distance between us.
Assure them
that in absence
our hearts are true
and may the thought of them
restrain and inspire us
day by day.
Relieve them
from undue anxiety in our behalf.
Spare them,
if it be Thy will,
to us
and us to them,
so that in Thine own good time
we may look once more
upon their faces.
Bestow upon them
all that they need
for the body and the soul.
We thank Thee
for those who ministered to us when we were young and weak,
for the friends and kindred of maturer years,
and for all whom we love.
May we be more worthy of their noblest thoughts of us
and may we serve them better in the future than in the past.
