Prayer for Family

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for blessing us with the gift of family. Thank You for the love and support that we receive from our family members. We ask that You would continue to watch over and protect our family, keeping us safe from harm and providing for our needs.

We pray that You would give us the strength and wisdom to be the best spouses, parents, and siblings that we can be. Help us to love and support one another, and to always seek to put the needs of others before our own.

May our family be a beacon of light and hope in this world, shining Your love and truth to those around us. We pray that You would use our family to bring glory to Your name and to further Your kingdom.

We pray for unity and peace within our family, and for the strength to overcome any challenges or difficulties that may come our way.

We trust in Your unfailing love and grace, and give You all the praise and honor. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
