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 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.

Dear God I pray for my mother and siblings that they stop treating me and my brother like where the black sheep of the family I really care for my mother and I’m not talking to her because of one of my brothers who said something to her that I was talking to him in private I feel like you shouldn’t have told my mother this because I was hurt I was worried about Trump sending all Mexicans back to Mexico or wherever or any other races that to their land where where they came from my mother is a United States citizen but I was just afraid told my brother that I was afraid they might send my mother back I know she’s an American citizen but the way this man has talked and has all white premises all over the place now

A Prayer for Your Children’s Sibling Relationships
Father God, thank You for each of my children. I pray that You would give them a desire to protect the bond of unity among themselves (Romans 15:5). Help them be devoted to each other in brotherly love and honor one another above themselves (Romans 12:9-10).
Lord, inspire my children to work together for the good of the other, living and growing in harmony each day. Help them be compassionate and humble in the way they do life together. When squabbles arise, spur them toward reconciliation so the friction may be dissolved quickly and in ways that benefit both parties. Help them be self-controlled and wise in their words and actions toward each other (1 Peter 3:8-9). Lord, where there is unity You bestow blessings and life (Psalm 133:1,4). I pray this would be so for my children’s relationships throughout their whole lives.
Father, teach my children how to be patient and kind to each other. Do not let envy or pride take root in their hearts. Keep them from dealing rudely or angrily with each other. Help them forgive wholly and completely not letting grudges or bitterness sour their hearts against each other. Lord, help my children protect their family ties, trust each other, hope for the best for each other, and persevere in building each other together in love and truth (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:9-10
Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 1 Peter 3:8-9
