"Lord, I offer to you the future members of my family, including in-laws, spouses of children, adoptees, and unborn children. I surrender to you and to your divine will the future of my family, and I abandon myself to your plans. Whomever you choose to bring into the life of my family, and whenever you choose to do so, teach me to love and to pray for those people. May new family members be welcomed with love and generosity. Grant that our relationships be free from vain family posturing, jealousy, selfishness, adn competition amongst members. Teach us to be open to new life at all times and in all situations. May the Spirit of peace and love pervade my family at all times, I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen."
