"The Christian family is . . . where God's children learn to pray 'as the Church' and to persevere in prayer" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2685). As a human and Christian family, some of our earliest prayers focus on the people in our lives.
Prayers for people often highlight important moments in the life of a family, school, or Church. Prayers for people remind us that, whether in times of grief or joy, God is always with us.
