“Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” James 4:14 NIV
It is clear that being followers of Christ doesn’t remove us from unforeseen circumstances, especially with our family. Here are 6 family prayers to pray over your loved ones.
Prayer when you feel your relatives are under attack
Your word says in proverbs 18:10 “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: The righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” Father, just as you protect your people from their enemies and the attacks on their families in
the word of God, both in the old and new testaments, we trust that you will do the same for us. We believe that your name is a strong tower and the power in the name of Jesus keeps us safe. Thank You, Jesus, amen.
Prayer when you feel your family needs God’s covering
You told us in (NKJV) Psalm 91:4;” He shall cover you with His feathers and under His wings you shall take refuge.” We stand in agreement with You. We trust that You will cover us with your feathers and under Your wings we will take refuge. Thank You Jesus for being our covering, amen.
Prayer when you feel afraid of someone in authority over you
Heavenly Father, we choose to put our trust in You. Your word says in Proverbs 29:25 (KJV) The fear of man brings a snare, but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe. We hope in you and agree with your word. We put our trust in you to keep us safe. Thank You Jesus for keeping us safe, amen.
Prayer when you are not safe in your home at mealtime
We thank you for your word says, in Leviticus 26:5b (KJV) “ye shall eat your bread to the full and dwell in your land safely.” We put our trust in You to see the promise you gave to your people and we realize you are the one who causes us to eat our bread to the full and dwell safely in our home. We pray in Jesus Christ’s name, amen.
Prayer when you feel your family needs God’s leading and safety
We trust you to lead us and keep us safe. Even as you said in Psalm 78:52a (KJV) And He led them on safely so that they feared not. We will not be afraid, but we will trust you. Thank You for taking our fears and giving us peace. We will trust and not be afraid, in Jesus Christ’s name we pray, amen.
Prayer when you feel afraid because of a disobedient family member
Heavenly Father, You said in Proverbs 1:33 (KJV) ; “But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely and shall be quiet from the fear of evil. We choose to listen to you and stay safe. We will trust you and we will not fear evil. You promise to make us dwell safely and take away the fear of evil. Thank You for giving us peace and safety, in Jesus Christ’s name we pray; amen.
