Prayer for My Family–The family unit is God’s idea:
“And did not He make one? Yet had He the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That He might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth” (Malachi 2:15).
No Family is Right Without God’s Involvement: The family is the nucleus of the church, society, nation, and the world at large. Whatever is in the society today is an offshoot of the
home front. However, Psalm 127:1 says,
“Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”
God Does Not Intrude Without Invitation: No one can raise a healthy family without the Lord’s help. Prayer is Earth’s permission for Heaven’s intervention. God would not enter a home where He is not welcomed. So, you need to invite Him through your prayers for your family. He says,
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).
Your family should be an extension of God’s family in Heaven to the Earth here.
Cooperate With Your Prayer Objectives: After prayer is offered, the family must be patterned in line with the prayer to get the answers delivered. A family that prays for peace must give peace a chance to reign. If you pray for godliness, you must learn godliness and practice it, etc.
Prayer for My Family
Thanksgiving: Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me a family. I am grateful in Jesus name.
Mercy: Lord have mercy on my family, and forgive anything anyone among us has done to give the enemy a foothold to intrude in Jesus’ name.
“And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually” (Job 1:5). “Neither give place to the devil” (Ephesians 4:27).
Security from Evil: Lord, the destroyer of homes will not find my family in Jesus’ name. No evil and evil ones that creeps into homes to destroy them will have access to my family in Jesus’ name.
“For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts” (2 Timothy 3:6). The Fear of God: Father, let fear of You fill the heart of every member of my family, from the oldest to the youngest in Jesus’ name. Let none habor rebellion or defiance against Your word in Jesus’ name.
The Knowledge of God: Reveal Yourself to every one of us in Jesus’ name. Let every one of our daily experiences capture the reality of You in Jesus’ name. Make Yourself real to us through Your word in Jesus name. “And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord” (1 Samuel 3:21).
Love & Unity: Father, bind us together in love in Jesus’ name. Give us an impenetrable unity in Jesus name. Let our minds and purposes be knitted together in Jesus name. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1).
Removal of Burdens: The Great Deliverer, take away every burden of afflictions upon my family in Jesus name. “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). Thank You for answered prayers. In Jesus’ name I have prayed. Amen!
