Family Unity. It is a treasure to us all, and something very precious to each of us. The Lord blesses us with family members to lead, counsel, love and take care of, and in exchange, our family does the same for us. Praying for our family is something we should do daily. Whether someone you love needs God’s grace in a hard situation, or you simply want to bless his or her walk in life through our Lord Jesus Christ.
If the need for prayer and protection for your family and loved ones is what you are seeking most, whether in your own life, or in the life of someone you love, let us pray for you at the holiest place on earth, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. We have faith that sending your prayer to the place where our Lord Jesus Christ gave his life for us will help your request be granted! It is our honor and privilege to be a prayer warrior for you, and to ask the Lord to watch over you, protect you, and keep you, always. Please submit your prayer request today.

Prayer for Family Unity
Lord, I want to thank You for this precious family of mine. For the talents and good things that You have given each of us. Please keep us united, and our bond strong as the days pass. Please guide us, protect us and equip us to do Your will each and every day. Thank You for all that You are, and all that You have given us. My heart is forever grateful!
Prayer for Protection Over Family Members
Lord, I ask for protection and safety over my spouse, my children, my parents, my family members and myself today. Please lead us with Your mighty hands today and always. Deliver us from any enemy and evil that try to hinder our way. Do not let the ways of the enemy blind our eyes. We know that You are for us, so that no one could ever stop us. Please watch over us and guide us all safely throughout this day, so that we may all arrive safely back home, Father. Amen.
Prayer for a Troubled Family Relationship
Heavenly Father, there is a war going on in the souls of many of my family members. I will not be silent about this, and I pray that you will look after them. I also come to you today to pray for the salvation of my family as well. Lord, may my family know You. I pray that they will learn to crave You just as I do. I pray that they will learn to stand strong in the face of trials and tribulations in life. When people knock them down, I pray that they stand up even stronger in You than ever before. I pray that they show love instead of revenge on those who do not agree with them. Give me strength to persevere through any troubles that come my way today. It is time to rise above the sin that comes at me and to that of my family members. It is in Your precious name I pray these things.
Prayer for Grandchildren
Heavenly Father, You have blessed me with precious grandchildren, and I am ever so grateful! I pray for these little souls, Lord. I also want to thank you for my own children. I have raised them up to praise You, and to look to You in all things. I lift up my grandchildren to You today, Lord. These little ones are precious gems in Your eyes, as well as in mine, and that of our family. Please watch over them each and every day. Keep them safe, and guide them in all that they do. I ask these things in Your precious name. Amen.
Prayer for Your Family’s Strength
Please shine your light upon my family today, Lord. Give us strength to overcome all of the difficulties that we are currently dealing with, and protect us against any and all problems we may encounter in future days. Lord, please bring us together as we are meant to be. May the love that binds us only grow stronger as we fulfill the path and desires You have laid out before each of us. Grant my family forgiveness for any sins we
have committed against one another. Amen.
Prayer for a Healthy Pregnancy
Thank you Father for the little baby that is about to be born. Lord, I pray that You would protect this unborn child that is being knit together in his/her mother’s womb, and I pray Lord that You would give grace for a safe and healthy delivery at the right time.
May this baby grow up to know and love the Lord Jesus, which will make him/her wise unto salvation. I pray for Your protection and grace for this little baby who is shortly to take his/her place in this world, and I ask that he/she may grow in wisdom and understanding. Guard and protect both mother and child as the day for delivery draws ever closer, and keep them from all the perils and uncertainties in this journey. Amen.
“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” 1 Corinthians 1:10

Family is the most important thing in any man or woman life. Family is the first source of support and security, love and understanding, protection and help in any human life. It doesn’t matter where you are at the moment, you always know and have a feeling, that you can go back to your family home. If you have family, you will never feel alone and lost in the world. It is necessary and very key that our families remain and progresses in Christ. The only way to achieve that is by constantly speaking prayer for my family protection and peace together with other family members or just sending prayer words from your heart to your family members.
Prayer for my family protection and peace
Dear Lord, I thank you for my family and for the health you have given us. I thank you because you are always with us. May your presence and your mercy never depart from us in Jesus name.
Dear Lord, in Joshua 24:15, Joshua declared that he and his family will serve the Lord. Father, I pray that my family will not be led away from you. I pray that every single member of my family will be kept under your banner and in your refuge and that we will always serve and worship you in Jesus name.
Dear Lord, I pray for peace and protection in my family. I pray that we will make good strides and we will not stumble. I pray that we will have good success and that we will not fail at whatever we put our hands to do.
Dear Lord, I ask for your grace and your protection for every member of my family. I ask that your grace will open doors for my family and give us numerous breakthroughs.
Dear Lord, I pray for your financial assistance in my family. I pray for assistance in any we may need it. I ask for your provision and I pray that you keep us from lack in the name of Jesus.
Father, I pray that you will keep my family strong to pray and not to faint. I pray that you will give us the peace and grace to pray without ceasing in Jesus name. Amen.
What is prayer for my family?
Prayer for my family is supplications, declarations or utterances made for your family. When you say a prayer for my family, you are interceding or standing in gap for your family. Prayer for my family protection and peace is quite important. It reminds your family of the God they serve and keeps them constantly in tune with His word. Prayer for my family also has the effect of positively affecting family members by God’s grace, since God answers prayers. Only by praying it is possible to reach peace, progress and any positive impact on your family.
Bible proves, that constant prayers really can make changes in each family and it’s members lives. Here are some examples:
Genesis 25:21-22 says, “Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant”.
1 Chronicles 16:43 “Then all the people left, each for his own home, and David returned home to bless his family”.
2 Timothy 1:16 “May the Lord show mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, because he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains”.
Endeavour to say a prayer for your family protection and peace every day, every now and then. Ask your family members to do the same. Let it be that important to you and you will see the changes you desire in your family in Jesus name. Remember the saying: “Family which prays together, stays together”. What could be more important?

I just finished praying for a friend of mine who is participating in a revival soon. Satan is on the move to make sure this revival doesn’t happen, but Satan being the “Great Deceiver” has deceived himself. I know God wants this revival to happen and it is time for war! Through prayer and supplication I know that God will make sure this revival happens! If our God can make a revival happen for many people, He can also make a revival happen in just one person’s heart. Here are 7 prayers that you can pray for your family, whether it is for revival of those lost or the protection of those in your home.
“I know Who goes before me. I know Who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side.” (God Of Angel Armies, Chris Tomlin)
I ask for protection over my spouse, my children, and myself today. Lead us with Your mighty hands today. Deliver us from any enemy that tries to harm us. We know that You are for us, so that no one could ever stop us. (Ref. Romans 8:31) Please guide us all safely throughout this day, so that we may all arrive safely back home, Father. You are Great, Powerful, Strong, Mighty, Awe-inspiring, Amazing and AWESOME! Be with us all this day. I love you, Father! Amen
“You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13)
You have been so patient with my own brother. He says he believes in You, but his actions still say differently. He has not surrendered everything to You, Lord. Lord I pray that he would sincerely seek You with his entire being! I praise Your Name because You have allowed him to live another day in hope that he will return to You. Father, I pray that You do everything necessary to bring him back. If he must lose his job, so be it. If he must go through health issues to find You, so be it. Father, whatever it takes, please bring him to You. Better to suffer immensely in this world to find You, then to suffer eternally in hell without You. Father, I cannot imagine heaven without any of my family. I love them all so dearly! Please, Lord, bring your long, lost son home! Bring a revival in his heart! I love You! Amen
Prayers For Grandchildren
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
You have blessed me with enough years to enjoy my precious grandchildren! Thank you, Father! I pray for these little ones, Lord. I will be crossing the finish line of heaven in a short while and I pray that Your Name will be glorified in everything I do with them. I thank you for my own children. I have raised them up to praise You, Father! I am filled with joy to see them reading the Bible to my grandchildren. O Lord, it brings me to tears of joy to hear those tiny voices singing “Jesus Loves Me”. I cannot contain the tears for my cup is overflowing with joy! I praise Your Name! I lift up my grandchildren to You today, Lord. These little ones are precious gems in Your eyes. Watch over them and lead them to the finish line that I will cross soon. I want to be there as they do cross it to see Jesus embrace them and say, “well done!” Father, You are worthy of so much more than I can give, but I offer up this prayer in faithfulness to You. I love You, Father! Amen
“All the hearts who are content and all who feel unworthy and all who hurt with nothing left, will know that You are holy.” (All The Poor And Powerless, All Sons And Daughters)
Much hurt and turmoil has ripped apart what man should never have separated. (Ref. Mark 10:9) I thank You, Lord that You sustained me through the storm of divorce and brought me safely to the other side. Sin is the reason for my blended family and I pray right now that sin will affect it no more! Lord, I pray for my ex and her soon-to-be husband. I pray that you would watch over them both and guide them back to You. I pray for the children they will have together. I pray that they would raise them in the church. I pray that their children will come to know You, Lord. Father, I pray for my children, Lord. I pray that they learn to stay strong in You when they miss me and can’t have me. I pray that you would shower them with love and affection! Thank you for Your comforting word, “He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet You by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17b) Thank you for quieting my stormy spirit when I ache for my kids. Your love is unending and it never fails me. Lord, words cannot express how thankful I am for Your love and compassion for me. Be with my entire family, Lord.

There is a war going on for the souls of my family. I will not be silent about this! Lord, I pray for the salvation of my family. Lord, my children know You. I pray that they will learn to crave You without me talking with them first. I pray that they will learn to stand strong in the face of the storms in life. When people knock them down, I pray that they stand up even stronger in You than before. I pray that they show love instead of revenge on those who hate them. I pray that their lives will show Jesus to this dark world. We are in a battle and I will not back down! I commit this day to You, Lord. Give me strength to persevere through any troubles that come my way today. It is time to rise above the sin that comes at me and shove it to the wayside. Sin has no place in my heart or mind, Lord! If I fall today, I pray for Your patience with me. I am a sinner and I do not want to sin! I praise Your Name, Lord! I love You! Amen
Are You Sitting Down?
“With full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:20b-21)
The passing of my mother last night is grieving me. Lord, how do I tell my children that their grammy is in Heaven? I can shower them with love and affection immensely, but I cannot take the pain away from their tears. I need You now more than ever, Father. I keep thinking about how grieved Your own heart must have been when You watched Your own Son shed His blood on the cross for us all. Father, I am so sorry that my sin helped drive those nails into His hands and feet. Lord, I ask that You give me the words to speak as I deliver this news to my babies. I know that my mother is in Heaven and that makes me so hopeful, but the pain is still here. I pray that You would wrap Your arms around me, Lord. I need Your affection so badly right now. Give me “peace that passes all understanding” (Philippians 4:7a) Prepare the hearts and minds of my little ones, Lord. This will be one of the toughest days of my life. May Your Name be glorified this day. I love You! Amen
Fellowship Of Believers
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Hebrew 10:24-25)
I have an awesome family of believers to call my brothers and sisters! I thank you for them all. Through our unity we are strong through Christ Jesus, our Lord. Father, I pray that as the Day does draw near we continue to shine the light of Jesus to this hurting world, even to each other. Lord, sometimes it hurts more when a fellow brother/sister hurts me. Lord, give me compassion to forgive them as I should. Sin is to blame, end of story. Not one member of Your church is faultless, Father. I love my church family dearly! I also pray that You would soften the hearts of any that may have callouses starting. Father, rip those callouses away layer by layer. We all need to let go and let You be in control. Father, bless my fellow brothers and sisters this day! May it be a day of rejoicing in You through every single thing that we experience! I love You! Amen
Whether it is your own family or your church family, there are many things that we can all pray for, for the wellbeing of them all. Lift up your loved ones today! Pray for them! May God bless you as you live a life worthy of the calling!
