Family Blessings

Among the many prayers for family, there are blessing prayers to say for your family. Blessings can be performed by priests during rites, but every Christian can say a blessing. You can perform a blessing with a simple gesture (with the signing of the cross, for example), or by saying a few words. To bless means to pray for the wellbeing of others. It is a symbol of love and benevolence, done by entrusting the Lord with our family members. 

Family Blessing Prayer

“We bless You, O Lord Our Father, for sending Your Son to live a family life, and share the joys and pains of mankind. 

We pray You to bless this family: (...)

Strengthen its members, keep them under Your protection, bring them peace and happiness. 

Help them help one another in challenges and sorrows. Let them follow the footsteps of Your Son, and live in perfect harmony with Your love.

We ask this Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. 


Blessing of a Child

(Sign the cross on your child’s forehead)
