Prayers for Family
for Family Healing
Heavenly Father, we pray to you for those in our families who have fallen sick. We know that you are our Healer, our Great Physician. May You be the comfort of our family members who are in pain. Restore their health with Your Healing Hands, Lord. Send forth your Word and heal their illness. Let Your healing power flow through every cell of their bodies. Thank you for your healing mercies that you have bestowed upon my family.
Loving Father, we also pray for healing the members of our families who are hurting emotionally. Their affliction is not physical, but we know that they are also in pain and suffering. All the bad experiences have left us wounded and fearful. During hard times, God, please give them the comfort, glean wisdom and peace that transcends understanding. Father God, let your healing hand be upon us.
Father, may their hearts be full of anger, hatred, strife, bitterness, and unforgiveness. Please heal their hearts, as well as ,clear their minds of any doubt, anxiety, or depression. Renew in them a peaceful spirit, Lord. Mend our hearts and fill us with peace and joy. Amen.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your blessing over our family. Help us to be unified. Help us to share joy and happiness with our family members. Help us to share the same vision and dream that You have for us. Lord, guide us and keep us on the right path. I pray for unity of our family. Help us to stand in unity… preferring one another over ourselves and loving You above all else. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
for Family Strength
Dear God, You are our ultimate source of strength. You are strong. When we are weak and having rough times, we trust your strength. We know that you lift us up when we are down. You renew our strength, and we soar on wings like eagles. Thank You, God, for always raising us up with Your mighty hands.
How strong our bonds are with our families depends on You, Lord. Give us strength to overcome all of the difficulties that we are dealing with now and protect us against any and all problems we may encounter in the future. Which is why we pray You to always be the center of our family relationships. Make our families to be as a triple-braided cord that cannot easily be broken. Make our family strong. Let Your Spirit fill our hearts so we can love each other just as Christ loves us.
In our times of trials and troubles, God, we look to You. Life can hand us many different challenges that we know we cannot face on our own. During hard times, we never give up because with You, Father God, we believe that nothing is impossible. We can deal all the hardship we face. We believe that You will always grant us the endurance to overcome any obstacle that may come our way.
You are our strength when we are weak, God, and we are always grateful when You manifest Your power through our lives. All these we pray in Your Name, Amen.
Grant us, O Lord Jesus, to follow as a model faithfully the example of your Holy Family and to make our home another Nazareth. May peace, love and joy prevail. Grant us the grace to be the parents we should be for our children. Grant that the embrace of our home gives the strong support to our children to find their human dignity and their growth in truth and love. When the time comes for each of us to go to the everlasting home you have prepared for us, may your glorious Mother and St. Joseph take us to you, after the final grace of a happy death.
God bless the corners of this house,
And be the lintel blest;
And bless the hearth and bless the board
And bless each place of rest;
And bless each door that opens wide
To stranger as to kin;
And bless each crystal window pane
That lets the starlight in;
And bless the rooftree overhead
And every sturdy wall,
The peace of man, the peace of God,
The peace of love on all.

When You are Far Away from Home
I am far from home and I miss everyone and everything.
I think about my children and wish I could tuck them in at night.
I miss my spouse, my family and our special times.
I miss all the little things I usually take for granted.
Help this time pass quickly.
Bless those I love.
Help them know they are always in my thoughts and prayers.
And bring me home safely. Amen.

Dedication of a Family
Jesus, permit us to dedicate to you each member of our family.
Our brother and our Lord, you have come to save us because God loves us with a deep and unending love. Acccept each one of us and may every beat of our hearts be an act of love for you.
You have given us Mary, your mother, to be our mother too, and invite us to follow her example.
On earth she was a woman of faith and prayer, of obedience to God’s will, always ready to serve in any way.
In heaven she continues to pray for us, so that we may serve God faithfully in our daily living.
Jesus, by the power of your Blood, may we be strengtened and sustained in our daily difficulties.
Oh most Sacred Heart of Jesus, help us to ponder in our hearts over the many ways you show your love in our lives, and lead us to walk with your mother as we follow you each day.
Bless our home, dear Jesus, we praise you,
for you are our Lord and our God
for ever and ever. Bless our joys and sufferings, and every moment of our lives.
Teach Us to Love
O God, perfect us in love,
That we may conquer all selfishness and hatred of others;
Fill our hearts with Thy joy,
And shed abroad in them Thy peace which passeth understanding;
That so those murmurings and disputings
To which we are too prone may be overcome.
Make us long-suffering and gentle,
And thus subdue our hastiness and angry tempers,
And grant that we may bring forth the blessed fruits of the Spirit,
To Thy praise and glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

for a Troubled Family Relationship
Heavenly Father, there is a war going on in the souls of many of my family members. I will not be silent about this, and I pray that you will look after them. I also come to you today to pray for the salvation of my family as well. Father, draw them near and bring them back to You.
Oh Lord my God, I praise Your Holy name. May my family know You. I pray that they will learn to crave You just as I do. I pray that they will learn to stand strong in the face of trials and tribulations in life. When people knock them down, I pray that they stand up even stronger in You than ever before. I pray that they show love instead of revenge on those who do not agree with them. Give me strength to persevere through any troubles that come my way today. It is time to rise above the sin that comes at me and to that of my family members. Help them to be at peace with one another. Manifest Your divine love within their hearts. Let Your tranquility be bestowed upon their lives.
for protection and provision
Father, Thank you for my family. I ask that you bless them with Your favor. Provide for all of their needs. I ask You to protect them from harm and evil. Surround them in the shadow of Your wing. Go before them and prepare the way for them. If any path is crooked, I ask you to make it straight. Protect them from the schemes of the enemy and keep them from deception. Bring Your perfect peace to their hearts. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
