There is a quote that says…
Having somewhere to go is a home. Having someone to love is a family. Having both is a blessing.
Although, I believe most would agree that having a home and a family is a huge blessing, based on prayer requests I receive … many families need God’s blessings of peace, safety, and love.
So, I’d love for you to pray with me…
God, Bless My Family with Peace, Safety, and Love
Father, thank you so much for giving me this place I call home and for the family with whom I share the space.
We need You! Please forgive us for falling short of Your will for us individually and as a whole. We want to do better and we need Your help.
Bless My Family with the Firm Foundation of Faith
“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.” Matthew 7:24
May faith in Jesus be the foundation on which we build our lives. May we know and follow His teachings that we might have the strength to stand against temptation and weather life’s storms.
Bless My Family with Your Peace
Jesus told His followers…
“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27
Forgive us for the times we’ve tried to find peace in worldly promises or possessions. You offer us perfect peace. Please help us surrender every concern to You that we might experience that “peace that goes beyond understanding.” (Philippians 4:7)
Bless My Family with Your Protection
Your Word promises…
He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Psalm 91:4
Father, I ask that You place a hedge of protection around my family and keep us safe as we come and go.
Bless My Family with Your Forgiveness
Father, may we make allowances for each other’s faults, and quickly forgive anyone who offends us. Thank you for Your grace and mercy … for forgiving me. May we refuse to let any offense or fault come between us. Please clothe and unite us with Your perfect love. (Based on Colossians 3:13–14)
Bless My Family as We Serve You
“As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
Father, by the power of Your Spirit, may we obey Your commands, follow Your will, and serve others as if we are serving You.
Bless My Family and Help Us Live for Your Glory
Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for Your unfailing love and faithfulness. Psalm 115:1
Father, may my family live each moment for Your glory. Help us share Your unfailing love and faithfulness with each other …. and with every person You allow to cross our paths.
In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
I am so blessed that you are joining me for this journey…
