Let us ask God to bless us,
adn our families and friends.
(A moment of silence...)
Father of us all,
look upon us in Your love, and bless us.
Be merciful to us,
and to our families and friends.
Protect us from sin and harm,
and guide us with Your light
until we come together again.
All praise, glory, and honour to you, Father,
through Christ our Lord.
May you be protected and blessed,
and made strong in faith, hope, and love
by our all-powerful God,
the Father, the + Son, and the Holy Spirit.
