Your child is desperate of peace, patience, prosperity and love. I ask lord that you remove this heavy weight off of my heart and allow me to love and be loved. God that you remove the debt, evil people, unbearable situations and the feeling of despair.
God I ask that you bless me abundantly with happiness, a great husband, two beautiful children, promotions and extra income at work and great health. I ask that the union I have already created can turn into a lifetime of love, happiness and excitement.
I also thank you lord for the blessings I have received and the blessing that are yet to come but I am sure they are on the way. I know that all my prayers will be answered soon and I will praise your name all the days of my life.
Prayer for Love
Some time ago a reader, Debra, shared with me the wonderful prayer of Saint Francis which reflects the desire of those of us who wish all hearts everywhere to be filled with peace and love. During this season where we recognize Jesus Christ who was a great example of love and forgiveness, I thought it would be a great time to share this payer with all of you as well.
An interesting aspect of yoga practice, which I always enjoyed, was the extra 1 minute we would add to various exercises and sets, and devote that effort to others. This aspect was a reminder that we not only practice for our wellbeing, but that our practice is ultimately aimed at uplifting and healing the world around us as well.
Also, there is a technique which is dedicated to the expression of such love and sacrifice and it is called Jesus Pose. A picture of that pose is below and you can get more details on it in the following article: Jesus Pose for Love and Sacrifice. This exercise is great for including into your practice as well, especially towards the end of sets, to build your inner strength and retain the attitude of love and forgiveness.

Prayer for Peace and Love
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred- let me sow love.Where there is injury- pardon.Where there is discord- harmony.Where there is despair- hope,Where there is darkness- light.Where there is sadness – joy.
Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not seek so much to be consoled as to console…
To be understood as to understand…To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardonedand it is in dying that we are born into eternal life.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and peaceful new year. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om.
Today, we turn our thoughts to the topic of prayer for family unity. Some families are fractured for many reasons. This indicates the need for unity whether or not all members are living under the same roof. About this tells inspirational love and peace verses from Bible.
There is the need for forgiveness and the restoration of broken relationships so people can be whole again. It has been observed that people who live in harmonious families are usually happier. They are more fulfilled and more productive than those who live in problematic families.Another reason for seeking unity is because the family is the most fundamental unit in society. Therefore, if every family could live in harmony and peace, then the society would also be more peaceful.

Oh God, help my family members be in peace and unity with one another. Please help each my family member embrace and practice the core values of our family for the well-being of us all. Let everybody feel loved and respected in family. Let us be committed to the good of one another all the time. Dear God, let us not nurture anger in our hearts for it to lead to resentment, bitterness and even hatred. Teach us how to resolve our conflicts openly, honestly and promptly. Please make us humbly enough to admit our faults and to seek forgiveness, love and prace when we have wronged others. Dear God, please help each of us to seek peace so as to maintain the unity of the family. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
What is a Prayer for Family Unity
Prayer is talking to God. So a prayer for family unity is talking to God about family and your desire to live in unity, peace and love. This is a state of existence where the family has a sense of well-being and harmony arising out of a shared feeling of commitment, responsibility and loyalty to each other and a set of core beliefs pursued in an environment where each person is loved and valued. Here, the individual can make decisions knowing that they are supported by the family, even when at times they might not agree. This kind of environment contributes to unity as a group while providing each member with the optimal chance of achieving their fullest potential.
Why Such a Prayer is Important
Such a prayer for unity is important because God invites us to come to Him with our needs. He promises to answer us when we pray according to His will. Also He will answer us in ways we never imagined or dreamed about. These are enough reasons for us to come to God in prayer about unity in our families.
Family unity is worth pursuing not only because it pleases God. Where the family has a sense of well-being and harmony arising out of a shared sense of commitment, responsibility and loyalty. Family base is a set of core beliefs pursued in such a way that each person feels loved and valued. Within such a setting, the individual feels free to make decisions knowing that he has the support of the family, even when at times they might not agree with him. This contributes to their peaceful co-existence as a group while providing each member with the optimal chance of achieving their fullest potential.
This is why we need a prayer for family unity because it is so important to a person’s well-being. We must also not forget that it is God who created families to accomplish his purposes. And he also made the rules for bringing about peace and harmony within them.
Inspirational Love and Peace Verses in Bible
Psalm 133: 1 says “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity.” This verse from Psalm 133 cited states very clearly the goodness and pleasure that come when family members live together in harmony. The psalm goes on to say it is like oil running down Aaron’s beard, suggesting a smooth, free flowing relationship within the family. This sounds like a place where biblical love is in practice and manifests kindness, patience and readiness to forgive each other.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
Colossians 3:13-14 says, ” Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
A united family is one that prays and works together for the well-being of the individual as well as the group. Parents have a task with the primary responsibility to create harmonious setting, they should seek to establish between themselves soon after marriage. They also should lay the foundation for the rest of the family. This should include a common set of values, based on the word of God, to promote unity.
How and When to Pray
Say prayer for family unity at regular family devotions. Then all family members may hear and give mental or verbal consent to the desires expressed since it concerns everyone. Pray it on important occasions when individuals go off to college or marry. When you make important decisions such a prayer becomes relevant. It can reduce the possibility of decisions turning out to be disruptive. Prayer should also be offered when actions reinforce the value of family unity. This can be an encouragement to others to pursue it.
Never forget that true peace and harmony begins in the individual’s heart when Jesus is Lord. This is the best preparation for living in unity within the family.
