A Prayer for Your Marriage and Family

LORD, I praise You that You are in control of my family, and I pray that You will show me the power of prayer. Give hope to our family, showing us Your unconditional love and speaking to them that You can heal, restore and rebuild their marriage.

For no word from God will ever fail.” Luke 1:37 

LORD, I praise You and thank You that I have confidence in approaching You; that if I ask anything according to Your will, You hear me. I ask you to show me your will for my marriage and family. I pray 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 will have new meaning to my spouse and me as You restore our love for each other every day. Lord, I pray that you would protect my spouse and our family from the enemy.  

LORD, I pray that no weapon formed against my family will prevail (Isaiah 54:17). I pray that You would remind my enemy that he was defeated at the cross when You rose to show Your resurrection power. Please keep the enemy from my family. May our marriage honor You. Where healing needs to happen, I pray that it will come. I pray that You, Lord, would knock down any walls that have been built in our family.  Do the work in our lives that must happen so our home can be rebuilt on the solid rock of Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:24-27).

LORD, I pray that my unsaved loved ones will have a personal relationship with You as their Savior and Lord of their lives. For it is by grace that we have been saved through faith, not of ourselves, but as a gift from God. (Ephesians 2:5)

LORD, I pray the full Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18) on this family and on all the families around the world who have strife in their home, separation, or divorce going on in their lives. I pray you would put a Hedge of Protection over them so that we can take a stand against the devil’s schemes. I stand in agreement with You, Lord, and know that all of the enemy’s tricks and plans against this family are broken. For our struggles are not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12).

LORD, I pray that You would protect my family from the evil desires of youth and instead help us pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22) I pray that my spouse or any other family members who are in bondage to sin will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. (2 Timothy 2:26) I know that Your sheep hear Your voice, so speak loudly to Your children today, and I pray that they will be obedient to Your voice, Your will, and Your way. I pray this in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

God bless,
