A Prayer for Family

Almighty God,

Thank You for our family and the love we share. We ask that You guide us and protect us, and help us to grow closer together as we follow Your teachings. Please give us patience, kindness, and understanding as we navigate the challenges of life.

We pray for strength and wisdom as we raise our children to know and love You. Help us to be good role models and to teach them Your ways. Protect them from harm and give them the guidance they need to make good choices.

We pray for our relationships with one another, that we may be a source of comfort, support, and joy to one another. Help us to forgive each other and to show love and grace in all that we do.

We ask for Your blessings on our family, that we may be a blessing to others. Please guide us in the path You have for us and use us to make a positive difference in the world.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
