Prayer of the Family

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today to give thanks for the blessings of our family. We are grateful for the love and joy that we share with one another. We thank You for the protection and provision that You have given us. We ask that You continue to guide and bless our family and that we may grow closer to You and to one another each day.

We pray for Your wisdom and strength for each member of our family. We ask that they may fulfill the roles that You have given them. We pray for our children, that they may be guided by Your love and truth. We pray that they may grow to be men and women of God. We pray for our parents, that they may be blessed with health and joy, and that they may be a shining example of Your love for us.

We also lift up to You any of our family members who are facing particular difficulties or challenges. We pray that You may provide them with the grace and guidance they need to overcome them.

We ask that You protect our family from evil and harm. We pray that You would surround us with Your love and peace. We ask that You would use us to bring Your love and light to those around us. We pray that our home may be a reflection of Your love and goodness.

We give You all the honor and glory, and we pray this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
