A Prayer for Family

Heavenly Father,
Please shine your light upon my family.
Give us strength to overcome all of the
difficulties that we are dealing with now
and protect us against any and all problems
we may encounter in the future.
O Lord, please bring us together as we
are meant to be. May the love that binds
us only grow stronger as we fulfill the destiny
you have laid out for us.

Grant my family forgiveness for any sins we
have committed. May we also forgive one
another Lord, as it is sometimes difficult to do.

Bless us Lord,
In your name I pray, Amen

a prayer for a family

QUESTION: How important is prayer for families?


Prayer for families is the very foundation that keeps a family unit together. Have you heard the phrase “A family that prays together stays together”? The concept is true – a family that has their focus on praying to the Lord Jesus Christ has a foundation that may be shaken at times, but it will withstand all that comes against them.

It’s important for parents to have their children involved in family prayer because this helps build the children’s relationship with the Lord and also teaches them the importance of prayer. Families that pray together establish trust with one another, learn to pray in a fellowship, and come in agreement through Jesus. These disciplines help bring unity to the household.

The family is a small church and our ministry first starts at home. In 1 Timothy 3:5 we read, “If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?” Managing your family is caring for each member, teaching them God’s ways, leading them to grow in the Lord, and equipping them for adult life. Prayer is an important element in this process. A family who has a heart of prayer for each other will have a heart of prayer for the world.

Prayer for families can be done in a variety of ways – by you in your prayer closet, by praying together with your spouse, praying together as a family unit, and praying with friends. Praying for your family not only lays a foundation for family life, it also surrounds your family with protection and peace.

In many cases, the Lord reveals specific needs for your family members. He reveals pain that they may be feeling or certain things that are drawing them away from fellowship with Him. Praying for your family can give you insight from the Lord and most of all, prayer will bring you comfort as God reminds you of His promises. Perhaps some members of your family do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Prayer for the unsaved is vital.

Prayer for Families – Sample Prayers

  • Prayer for protection and provision – Father, Thank you for my family. I ask that you bless them with Your favor. Provide for all of their needs. I ask You to protect them from harm and evil. Surround them in the shadow of Your wing. Go before them and prepare the way for them. If any path is crooked, I ask you to make it straight. Protect them from the schemes of the enemy and keep them from deception. Bring Your perfect peace to their hearts. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
  • Prayer for unity – Father, I thank you for blessing me with my family. I ask you to bring us into unity through You. I ask that anything that is hidden in darkness – to cause disunity – will be brought to light. I ask You to lead us into Your perfect truth and help us to be the family You intend us to be. Lord, help us to be a blessing to one another and to others. Reveal Yourself to us and let us come into agreement with You. Lead us in Your ways. Grant us compassionate hearts, fill us with Your love that does not keep records of wrong, and bring joy to our hearts when we think of one another. Bring Your perfect peace and unity into our family. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

a prayer for a family

A prayer for the family :

Our Father,

We acknowledge you as the creator of family.  Thank you for our mother, father, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.

We believe in your promises and desire to apply your truth.  Thank you for being faithful even when we are not.

We trust you will provide us with a well deep enough to love each other without end. Thank you that you loved us first.

We confess that we have not always treated our family with kindness. Thank you for showing us the path to forgiveness.

Protect our marriage from those who wish to destroy.  Guard our children from those who wish to harm.  Deliver us from hands that meddle and mouths that gossip.

If we desire children but have none, give us patience and hope.  If we are without a spouse, give us strength and companionship.  If we have lost too soon, give us peace and comfort.

Let our words be used to build up and encourage one another. Let our actions glorify and exalt you.

Grant us wisdom to recognize your voice and the courage to answer it.

We pledge our family to love.  We pledge our family to truth.  We pledge our family to you, Lord.

For those in our family who do not know you, we pray for their salvation.  For those in our family who have gone astray, we pray for their return.

You have put us together for a purpose.  We desire for that purpose to be known so that our feet may be put into action.

Allow our family to be a beacon of light that shines brightly in this dark world.  Allow our family the opportunity to pursue others as you pursued us.

Thank you for your love.  Thank you for giving us one another.  Thank you for the family.
