Family is a vital part of the community and of one’s life. It is also important to God. As a matter of fact, since the time of Adam and Eve, He made humans to support, guide and love one another. By saying a prayer for family, you can make your family stronger at all times. With this prayer, the family members are brought closer to one another. As the saying goes, “The family that prays together stays together.”
When uttering this type of prayer, make sure to include the names of every family member – your husband or wife, daughters, sons, mother or father. You may also include extended family members in your prayer. Entrust each one of them to the Lord. It is best to take time to pray for each of them. It is also good to see that the family members have a relationship with God. If this happens, they will be able to allow God to guide their lives. With this, any of the family members can say a prayer for family.
Saying a prayer for the whole family is the same as tapping into God’s unconditional compassion and love. There is no specific time of saying a prayer for your family or loved ones. You can do it anytime of the day and whatever you are doing. Whether you are in need of improved relationships, finances or health, saying a prayer for family can help you. On the other hand, through this prayer, you will be able to express your gratitude for the blessings that the whole family has received and been receiving. The family must not forget to thank the Lord for what He has showered onto them.
A prayer is also a great way of asking for forgiveness from the Lord for the bad things you have done to your mother, father, brother or sister. Through a prayer, you can put your most confidential anxieties, anguish and struggles in front of the Lord. Without you noticing it, you will feel better and happier whenever you say a prayer for family. The more the whole family prays, the more they learn to respect, trust, forgive and love one another in bad and good times.
This type of prayer must be done regularly by the whole family or every family member. Everyone should recognize it routinely. It may include Bible verses, songs or regular prayers. Though simple, this prayer is as powerful as the Lord.
