O Jesus Christ, our brother, our Lord:
   you lived in Nazareth;
   you obeyed your parents,
   worked with your father,
   and enjoyed the company
   of your friends and relations.

Think of our homes now, and bless them for us.
Strengthen the love that we have for one another;
   give all that we need for our welfare and happiness.
In a word, Lord, make our homes like you home;
   for your name’s sake.

Christopher Campling, 1925- , English Anglican Priest
