1. Pray and ask God to go with your family

“And he said unto him, if thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence” (Exodus 33:15).

We must daily take out time to dedicate our family into the hands of God. Pray that His presence will always go before and after them wherever they are. Speak a covering over each member of the family.

2. Dedicate your family to serve the Lord

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).

Pray and disconnect from every affiliation from previous generations. Use the blood of His son Jesus Christ to break any covenants made in your family bloodline with other gods. Pray against generational curses. Declare that your family is God’s and you all are moving forward in Jesus name.

3. Pray for the release of vision into your home

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he” (Proverbs 29:18).

In the case where there is lack of vision in the family, the verse above states that the people perish. Prayer points for the family here is to ask God to pour out vision into your home today. Pray and believe God to release vision into every member of the family. Pray against all kinds of stagnancy and declare progression into all they do.

4. Pray for unity in your family

pray for your family

Unity is very paramount in the family (Psalm 133). God has a principle of commanding His blessing where there is unity. Lack of unity devoid families of God’s blessings. Our prayer points for the family as related to this is to ask that God blesses our family with unity. Pray and ask God to give every member of your family the heart of forgiveness. Pray against any rooted seed of bitterness in our hearts. Ask God to bring you all together in love peace and unity in the name of Jesus.

5. Pray that God would bless your family with good health

“And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee” (Exodus 23:25).

We would suffer and perish if there is no physical and spiritual sound health in the family. Pray that God should send divine health to you all. Pray for those that are with disease and ask God to destroy all forms of sickness in Jesus name. Ask and pray that God would revive your prayer lives and spiritual health.

6. Pray and thank God for meeting your financial needs

God promises that He would meet and supply all our needs in Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”. Thank God for daily meeting the needs of all family members. God honours His word more than His name. He would do whatever He says He would. Speak His blessings over all family members. Don’t forget that you should pray and declare that you all will reap whatever you have sowed.

7. Praying for your family Pray for the Children

But Jesus said,“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven(Matthew 19:14).

Children are the heritage of God. We are to train them in the right path as they make their way through this world. Our prayer points for the family as regarding the children is that God would furnish the parents to raise children in the way the Lord wants them to go. Pray for wisdom for parents to nurture the children in the way of the Lord. Also, pray against any hindrance that would stand against them in knowing God. Pray well that God would preserve your children and keep their purity.

8. Pray for Parents

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).

God instructs parents on the plan to follow when raising children. Pray that God would raise fathers in this fatherless generation that would stand in the gap. Also, pray that God will give fathers the wisdom they require to lead and make them humble.

Pray and bring the mothers into the hands of God to strengthen them in their daily challenges. Pray that mothers will never feel inadequate for the task and they geared up for such a time as this in Jesus name. Amen.

**Note: this 31 day series took place in October of 2014. You may use these verses ANY month of ANY year, but there are no longer accompanying emails sent out with this particular prayer calendar. 

Before I share the first Scripture we will pray for our families, I wanted to share just a glimpse of what this series will be. This will not be an in-depth post on WHY I pray the Scriptures or HOW I pray the Scriptures. This won’t have lots of quotes from books on prayer or my own thoughts on prayer. The goal of this series is to encourage you to PRAY FOR YOUR FAMILIES, specifically the Scriptures. It is my hope that by not sharing lots of opinion and material about prayer that you might be inspired to spend more time praying. I’m praying for you, friends, as you join me this month and pray the Scriptures for our families!

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I give you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of theme when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” 

Prayer: Oh Lord, grant me the grace to love you more and more each day. May my family learn what it means to love you with all our hearts, souls and strength. Help my husband and I to be diligent teachers and doers of the Word in our home, when we sit at home, when we are driving around town and when we go to sleep at night. May your Word and Your love and Your sacrifice ever be on the forefront of our minds and hearts. Only by Your grace and for Your glory!
