Heavenly Father, when I read the Old Testament, I realize you know all about flawed families. Jacob and Isaac plotted for their father’s favor. Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery. David’s own son conspired to murder him, and yet you used these broken families. I pray that you would use my family, too, despite it’s flaws. Shed your grace over us. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
