Prayer for Family Guidance

Guide our way, Lord, as we go on with our lives today. Also, be our shield as we go back home later. May you always preserve the bond that we have as a family, and may we look forward to seeing each other once again at home. 

Guard our home as well, God, that no harm will fall on it as we are away. May it continue to be a sanctuary of blessing, comfort, and love for each one of us. Let it always be a restful place for our tired bodies at the end of the day. 

Continue to protect us, Lord, as we rest at night. Allow no intruders or calamities to disturb my home tonight. I trust in your mighty power to keep me and my family safe from any form of evil. In Your Name, I ask all these things, Amen.

Prayer for Family Healing

Dear God, we commit to you those in our families who have fallen sick. We believe that you are our Healer, our Great Physician. May You be the comfort of our family members who are physically in pain right now. Touch them with Your Healing Hands, Lord. Send forth your Word and heal their diseases. Let Your healing power flow through every cell of their bodies.

Loving Father, we also ask that you heal the members of our families who are hurting emotionally. Their affliction is not physical, but we know that they are also in pain. Give them comfort as well, God. Give them the peace that transcends understanding. Heal their hearts, Lord, which may be full of anger, hatred, strife, bitterness, and unforgiveness. Clear their minds of any doubt, anxiety, or depression. Renew in them a peaceful spirit, Lord. Amen.

A Family Prayer for Gratitude by Marie Osborne

Lord, help us to be thankful for one another. Help my children to be thankful for each other, for our family to be grateful for each member, and to pray for one another continually. Our gratitude for one another will bind us together as a family, and our prayers for each other will further unify us in gratitude and love.

Prayer for the Protection and Safety of Family by Rebecca Barlow Jordan

Lord, I pray for Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my family. Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge and strength. I pray You will guard their minds against harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize the truth. I pray You will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day. Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus and that their home on earth is only temporary.  - by Rebecca Barlow Jordan

Prayer For Friends and Relatives

Have mercy, O Lord,
on all those tied with us in the bonds of friendship and family,
and grant that they, with us,
may be so perfectly conformed to your holy will,

that being cleansed from all sin, we may be found worthy,
by the inspiration of your love,
to be partakers together of the blessedness of your heavenly kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Family Guidance

O God, King eternal, you divide the day from the night and turn the shadow of death into morning.

Drive away from us all wrong desires, incline our hearts to keep your law, and guide our feet into the way of peace, so that after we have done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, we may rejoice when night comes and give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
