Is your family facing division? It could be due to internal conflicts or outside influences. Either way, few things are more painful than family strife.
Things may look bleak right now, and it might seem impossible… but don’t give up hope! Stay faithful in prayer and service to your family. Maybe they might not let you get close, but serve them best from where you can.
Also, ask God what you might need to change or give up to close the gap. Remember, you don’t have to compromise your values to have a dialog… or to love more.
Trust that the Spirit of God is working in everyone during these trials. Stay hopeful and stay faithful, no matter how long it takes. Let Jesus be your comfort and guide. Cry out to him!

Has this site blessed you? Bless us back.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:7
For with God nothing will be impossible.
And he who sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
PRAYER FOR A DIVIDED FAMILY
O loving Lord,
Do you see my family? Can you see my hurt? How long, O Lord, will it last? When will we be united again?
I don’t know why it has to be this way, but it is. Help my heart to understand. Give me comfort even though I see my family torn apart.
I seek rest in your Spirit. May I remain faithful to Christ by staying faithful to my family. Show us how to heal and forgive.
Help me to keep my convictions but also love truly. Jesus shows how it’s done on the cross. Christ resurrected reveals to me God’s power for those who wait.
I will not lose hope. I will stay faithful and true. I reject the lies of the enemy. May your mighty Spirit work in us.
Have mercy, bring us together in the love of Christ, O Lord.
In his holy name,
