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. For those that live in the flesh, I pray that they would turn and seek You. Father, I need You more than ever before to be strong and courageous for You. May my life show clearly how much I love Jesus! I love You, Lord! Amen
It’s Time For War!
“Everybody with your fists raised high, let me see your battle cry tonight! Stand beside or step aside from the frontline!” (Frontline, Pillar)
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!

I come to you for my husband. Thank you for giving me this wonderful man. He is what I always wanted and need in a husband and father to our children. He makes me want to keep my vows I took: to love, honor and obey! I pray he feels my love for him each and every day.
Lord, he has so much on his shoulders in taking care of our family and right now I know the finances and direction for our lives are a huge burden to him. Please let him feel your presence in his life. Help him feel and know your guidance for what you want in our lives – our family. I know he is tired and feels weak at times – please give him your strength again. Lord I lift this man – my David – up to you.
Our girls are the most precious gift you have ever given us Lord. I thank you with all that I have and all that I am for each of them. They have such sweet hearts and show love so beautifully that it brings tears to my eyes. I am so honored to be their Mother and watch them grow and find the gifts you have given them.
I pray that each of our daughters grows to be a strong woman for you. That through them the world will see Your love for Your children. I pray that they will find the path you have for them and joyfully walk it each and every day. I pray that you are watching over the boys that will become the men that they marry one day. Keep them close to you Lord.
Father, I thank you for all the wonderful blessings you have given to me: my husband, our children and the honor of homeschooling them. You have given me so much more than I deserve Lord and I pray that you remind me of this when I start to forget. I long to be closer to You and walk with you – talk with you. Please show me my strengths and my weakness and help you to choose to follow my strengths and strengthen my weaknesses. Please guard my heart, my mind and my mouth, Lord. Help me to glorify you in all that I do and say so that I only bring praise to your name. Give me strength to support my husband and our family – to be the woman YOU want me to be!
Lord, I love you and thank you for being a God who loves and cares for me – before I was even born!
Love Life, Love God, Live For HIM…
