Prayer for a family in crisis

Does it feel like your home is a war zone? Or maybe there’s a deep silence. Many families around the world face problems that seem impossible to overcome. If there is any place the enemy prefers to attack, it’s the family.

Situations don’t always turn out the way you like. Accept this and seek how you can change to make things better. If you’re full of the Spirit, you’ll transmit the goodness of God to all those around you. Your suffering has a purpose. It may be mysterious and invisible to the world — but when your heart rests firmly in Jesus, he reveals his glory to you.

No matter how dark things seem, try to keep a long term perspective. Don’t predict doom and failure. Instead, lift your eyes up to heaven and regain hope. Believe in the prophecy of Christ resurrected.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, neither be dismayed; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Joshua 1:9

And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them;he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.”

And he who sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”

  1. Please help me pray for my family. My husband and daughter are not speaking at the moment, a small argument that never got resolved has snowballed and it’s tearing us down. Give us the strength to reconcile and be united like we were before. God please hear my prayers, I’m on my knees asking for your guidance.

    • O blessed Lord…. pour out your healing and your peace over Ronnie’s family especially over her husband and daughter… let the distance be closed… may your grace soften their hearts… let forgiveness be what guides them… send your Spirit in abundance, O Lord, to set the captives free… in Jesus name, Amen.

      I am praying for you Ronnie and your family. God’s grace, mercy and blessings to you all!

  2. Please pray for our family and our pets. I don’t know what else to do . I am so tired. I can feel my body being eaten up with fear and worry. God doesn’t listen to my prayers anymore. My family is so down and one of my fur babies is sick. I just want to give up and end all the pain. Why has God abandoned us? We have nothing else left. Please pray for us. Please.

    • Hi Bless…. I am praying now for you, your family and your pets. God has not abandoned you! Christ walks with you always. Please don’t give up hope! May the Lord pour out his grace, blessings, healing, protection and peace over all of you.

  3. I need prayer for my family. We are going through a crisis that I can’t see the end of. I am in constant fear and worry and I know that is not of God so that brings guilt. I have been trying to look forward to the expected end that is promised in The Word but it is hard to shake the uncertainty. Please Lord Help Us!

    • Dear krousermom4,
      It’s normal to worry when your family struggles. God doesn’t want to make you feel guilty. Keep seeking him. Ask for his help and healing. He will help you. You might try praying with the Psalms (try Psalm 27). This helps me during difficult times.

      Here’s a prayer for you:
      O loving Lord… pour out your mercy in abundance over krousermom4 and her family… give her calm and clarity during this time… send your healing, O Lord… give them freedom in Christ… let krousermom4 find peace in the wounds of the Lord Jesus… send your Spirit to protect and unite them… make all things new by your loving grace, O blessed Lord… in Jesus name, Amen.

      I will be praying for you and your family. God’s grace, blessings, protection, peace and mercy to you all!

  4. Please pray for my family, which used to be so loving and supportting with each other and since a year and a half ago, things had changed dramatically for bad, due to personal interests and bad tempers. I feel an evil attack trying to destroy my family because everyday I get closer and clorer to The Lord, I am struggling and I won’t loose my faith. The Lord will keep me and my family in His merciful hands.

  5. My family is facing a big crisis right now. Please help me pray to overcome this very difficult situations.Pray for my family be healed from mental, emotional and physical illness. Pray for us for our financial problems to sustain our everyday needs.

      I am and will be praying for you Marlene and your family!

      God’s grace and blessings,

    • Lord I pray for Marlene and her family. I pray you make a move in Thier situation. In your name I bind all attacks of the enemy in every situation and pray your peace and love over them all. Protect and restore them and bring healing of hearts minds and bodies, and provide for their needs emotionally mentally physically and practically. They their faith in you sustain them as you promise. In jesus name amen

    • Lord I lift Marlene and her family up to You in prayer.
      Lord, we thank you that You know Your children intimately, You alone know all the places that are broken, hurt and angry. Bring healing and peace to those places. Like a flood, let Your mercy pour out onto this family.
      Pour Your perfect love into their hearts, that it will overflow to others. Soften hearts that have become hard. Open the eyes of their hearts to see You. I pray the desire to walk in Your ways, and to love You above all else would begin to grow and take root in their hearts. For those that need to offer the gift of forgiveness, help them see how the burden of holding on to un-forgiveness is a weight that will ultimately crush them. Give them sound minds (2 Timothy 1:7), godly wisdom (James 1:5) and clarity to make good decisions and choices for the family. You are our refuge and strength, in times of trouble, Lord (Psalm 46:1)I pray that all in this family will run to You Abba Father and find lasting peace, fulfillment and joy, as only You can give. Thank you God for your abundant mercy, compassion and love. Thank you for hearing and answering our prayers. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
