Father God, the Tankard Family comes before you humbly and thanking you for all you have brought us through. As with many families, we have seen tragedies, struggles, hardships, hurt, and pain. It was only by your mercy and grace that we made it through. We thank you for loving us, for providing for us and during the times when we couldn't see our way through a situation, you made a way for each of us. We honor you and praise you for just being you!
Father, you are merciful and gracious and you honor all of your promises. You promised to never leave nor forsake us. And for that, Father, we thank you!
We ask for forgiveness for any wrong we've done knowingly and unknowingly. If there is a family member who is experiencing any confusion, we ask that you bring them peace and contentment. For any family member who is sick and shut in, we ask that you give them strength. For any family member experiencing financial hardships, we ask that you blessed their finances. For any family members who are in any need, we know that you see the need and that you can supply all that they need.
Father we ask that you send your heavenly and earthly angels to protect us all. We ask that you restore our family. Restore our broken hearts, restore broken spirits, restore our faith, restore our love for you and for each other. Father, we ask that you teach us to love one another as you have loved us unconditionally! We ask that you strengthen us when we are weak, that you nourish us with your word when we are hungry and we ask that you warm us with your Holy Spirit so that we are lead to do what is right and pleasing to you!
We ask that you continue to bless us as we go forth with our Family Reunion and beyond the reunion. Let us continually recognize that you are the Almighty and that you reign and have the power to see and do all things. You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. You are our help, you are our hope. We rely on only you. You will supply all that we need. Father we love you and honor you! We ask for your blessings in Jesus' name
