Prayer to Protect Family

Almighty God,

We humbly come before Your throne of grace to ask for Your protection over our family. We trust in Your love and faithfulness and know that You are our stronghold in times of trouble.

We ask that You would surround our home with Your hedge of protection, keeping us safe from all harm and danger. We pray for Your angels to be stationed around us, to guard and guide us in all of our ways.

We also ask that You would grant us wisdom and discernment to recognize and resist any attacks from the enemy. We submit ourselves to Your authority and trust in Your goodness and grace.

We pray that You would bless our family with health, joy, and peace. We give You thanks for all that You have already done, and trust in Your faithfulness to continue to watch over us.

In the name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
