A prayer for the family :
We acknowledge you as the creator of family. Thank you for our mother, father, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.
We believe in your promises and desire to apply your truth. Thank you for being faithful even when we are not.
We trust you will provide us with a well deep enough to love each other without end. Thank you that you loved us first.
We confess that we have not always treated our family with kindness. Thank you for showing us the path to forgiveness.
Protect our marriage from those who wish to destroy. Guard our children from those who wish to harm. Deliver us from hands that meddle and mouths that gossip.
If we desire children but have none, give us patience and hope. If we are without a spouse, give us strength and companionship. If we have lost too soon, give us peace and comfort.
Let our words be used to build up and encourage one another. Let our actions glorify and exalt you.
Grant us wisdom to recognize your voice and the courage to answer it.
We pledge our family to love. We pledge our family to truth. We pledge our family to you, Lord.
For those in our family who do not know you, we pray for their salvation. For those in our family who have gone astray, we pray for their return.
You have put us together for a purpose. We desire for that purpose to be known so that our feet may be put into action.
Allow our family to be a beacon of light that shines brightly in this dark world. Allow our family the opportunity to pursue others as you pursued us.
Thank you for your love. Thank you for giving us one another. Thank you for the family.
