Prayer to the Family

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today to lift up our families to You. We ask that You bless each member of our family, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Protect them from harm and give them Your peace. Give us the strength and wisdom to fulfill our roles as parents, children, and siblings, as You have called us to be.

Help us to love one another as You have loved us, and to forgive as You have forgiven us. We pray for unity and harmony within our families, and for the bonds of love to be strengthened. We trust in Your plan for our families and ask that You guide us in the way You want us to go.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
