A Prayer for Family Healing

Dear God,

We come to You today seeking Your healing and restoration for our family. We know that You are the Great Physician and that no problem is too big for You to handle. We ask that You would bring physical healing to any members of our family who are suffering from illness or injury.

We also pray for emotional and spiritual healing. Where there are divisions or strained relationships within our family, we ask that You would bring reconciliation and peace. Help us to forgive one another and to speak words of love and grace to one another.

We know that You have a perfect plan for our family and that You can use even the difficult circumstances we face for good. Help us to trust in You and to rely on You as our rock and our salvation.

We ask all of these things in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.
