Prayer About Family

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today with a grateful heart for the gift of family. I thank You for the love and support that my family provides, and for the memories I have been able to create with them.

I ask that You bless my family and protect us from harm. Grant me wisdom and guidance as I navigate the challenges of life. Help me to love my family members as You love me, with patience, kindness, and forgiveness.

I also lift up to You any family members who are struggling or in need of Your comfort and healing. I ask that You be with them, and give them the strength and peace they need to get through this difficult time.

I trust in Your plan for my family and pray for Your will to be done in my life. I thank You for the blessings of family, and for the privilege of being able to call You my Heavenly Father.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
