Prayer for my family

If there’s anything we pray for, it’s for our family. No other place brings as much joy and pain to us. What are the reasons behind this?

First of all, the family is the source of life. We all have a mother and father. If you were brought up by relatives or adopted parents, they also provided for you. Even in the most difficult families, there is life.

Still, we often hurt the one’s we care for the most. Maybe it’s because we are tired, and we let our guard down. Or maybe it’s because we trust in our loved ones. We feel that they will still love us even when we don’t behave so well. We trust in love.

The family can be an abundant source of love. When you are sick or in need, family shows up. In the toughest moments, families often come together. In many families, the abundance of generosity and love is astounding.

Still, we can also observe great hurt and betrayal within families. It would be unrealistic to think that any family is perfect, and some live with much pain.

And many times, the greatest acts of forgiveness occur in families.  This is the message of Jesus — forgive and be forgiven.

Pray for your family in the tough times

If we think about Christ on the cross, it helps us to understand our family struggles. That moment of great pain and suffering was also the doorway to salvation. When we suffer and serve our family, the greatness of God’s love shines through. Remember this in the trials your family faces.

Seek God’s promises for your family. Ask the Lord to reveal them to you. Pray upon his promises. Get strength and peace from them. It may take days, months or years — but even a lifetime is worth the life and love that comes from your family.

Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

PRAYER FOR MY FAMILY (regular text)

Oh loving Lord,

Do you see my family? Do you see how we have struggled? Do you see how we have hurt? Even each other. Pain going back, for generations.

So right here, right now, in your presence, I claim the promises you set forth for me and my family. Not a perfect family, that never suffers, that never bleeds – but a family united in LOVE, in Spirit and in Truth.

This can only come by your grace. Oh loving Lord, pour yourself out upon us. Wash us clean again. Reach down. Restore us.

Through your mercy, through your love.

In Jesus name,

Amen.
