May this family be devoted to You more and more every day. Strengthen us so that we may joyfully and faithfully follow Your will for us.
Let us cling to the spiritual and release the temporal.
Guide us Lord as we seek a clean, simple, organized and focused life. Give us clear discernment of truly necessary possessions so that we may never be in the place of the rich official who was "quite sad, for he was very rich" (Luke 18:23b).
