Prayer for Men with Families
7 Prayers For My Family
I just finished praying for a friend of mine who is participating in a revival soon. Satan is on the move to make sure this revival doesn’t happen, but Satan being the “Great Deceiver” has deceived himself.
I know God wants this revival to happen and it is time for war! Through prayer and supplication I know that God will make sure this revival happens! If our God can make a revival happen for many people, He can also make a revival happen in just one person’s heart.
Here are 7 prayers that you can pray for your family, whether it is for revival of those lost or the protection of those in your home.
“I know Who goes before me. I know Who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side.” (God Of Angel Armies, Chris Tomlin)
I ask for protection over my spouse, my children, and myself today. Lead us with Your mighty hands today. Deliver us from any enemy that tries to harm us. We know that You are for us, so that no one could ever stop us. (Ref.
Romans 8:31) Please guide us all safely throughout this day, so that we may all arrive safely back home, Father. You are Great, Powerful, Strong, Mighty, Awe-inspiring, Amazing and AWESOME! Be with us all this day.
I love you, Father! Amen
“You will seek Me and find Me, when you seek Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13)
You have been so patient with my own brother. He says he believes in You, but his actions still say differently. He has not surrendered everything to You, Lord.
Lord I pray that he would sincerely seek You with his entire being! I praise Your Name because You have allowed him to live another day in hope that he will return to You. Father, I pray that You do everything necessary to bring him back. If he must lose his job, so be it.If he must go through health issues to find You, so be it. Father, whatever it takes, please bring him to You. Better to suffer immensely in this world to find You, then to suffer eternally in hell without You. Father, I cannot imagine heaven without any of my family.
I love them all so dearly! Please, Lord, bring your long, lost son home! Bring a revival in his heart! I love You! Amen
Prayers For Grandchildren
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
You have blessed me with enough years to enjoy my precious grandchildren! Thank you, Father! I pray for these little ones, Lord. I will be crossing the finish line of heaven in a short while and I pray that Your Name will be glorified in everything I do with them. I thank you for my own children.
I have raised them up to praise You, Father! I am filled with joy to see them reading the Bible to my grandchildren. O Lord, it brings me to tears of joy to hear those tiny voices singing “Jesus Loves Me”.
I cannot contain the tears for my cup is overflowing with joy! I praise Your Name! I lift up my grandchildren to You today, Lord. These little ones are precious gems in Your eyes. Watch over them and lead them to the finish line that I will cross soon.
I want to be there as they do cross it to see Jesus embrace them and say, “well done!” Father, You are worthy of so much more than I can give, but I offer up this prayer in faithfulness to You. I love You, Father! Amen
“All the hearts who are content and all who feel unworthy and all who hurt with nothing left, will know that You are holy.” (All The Poor And Powerless, All Sons And Daughters)
Much hurt and turmoil has ripped apart what man should never have separated. (Ref. Mark 10:9) I thank You, Lord that You sustained me through the storm of divorce and brought me safely to the other side.
Sin is the reason for my blended family and I pray right now that sin will affect it no more! Lord, I pray for my ex and her soon-to-be husband. I pray that you would watch over them both and guide them back to You. I pray for the children they will have together. I pray that they would raise them in the church.

The passing of my mother last night is grieving me. Lord, how do I tell my children that their grammy is in Heaven? I can shower them with love and affection immensely, but I cannot take the pain away from their tears. I need You now more than ever, Father.
I keep thinking about how grieved Your own heart must have been when You watched Your own Son shed His blood on the cross for us all. Father, I am so sorry that my sin helped drive those nails into His hands and feet. Lord, I ask that You give me the words to speak as I deliver this news to my babies.I know that my mother is in Heaven and that makes me so hopeful, but the pain is still here.

I have an awesome family of believers to call my brothers and sisters! I thank you for them all. Through our unity we are strong through Christ Jesus, our Lord.
Father, I pray that as the Day does draw near we continue to shine the light of Jesus to this hurting world, even to each other. Lord, sometimes it hurts more when a fellow brother/sister hurts me. Lord, give me compassion to forgive them as I should. Sin is to blame, end of story.
Not one member of Your church is faultless, Father. I love my church family dearly! I also pray that You would soften the hearts of any that may have callouses starting. Father, rip those callouses away layer by layer. We all need to let go and let You be in control.
Father, bless my fellow brothers and sisters this day! May it be a day of rejoicing in You through every single thing that we experience! I love You! Amen

The Importance of Daily Prayer for Children & Families
November 05, 2015
Prayer is talking to God. It’s the simple opening of one’s heart to our father in Heaven. It’s coming to Him and telling Him everything in our hearts. God Himself asks us to pray.
This is expressed through the Apostle Paul, who told the Christians at Ephesus. ‘Pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests…’ (Ephesians 6: 18). Prayer is powerful and can change a life.
Daily prayer is important for the following reasons:
1. Prayer brings you closer to God
In any relationship, communication is the key to success. When you communicate, you are able to know more about a person. This also applies to your relationship with God.
Through talking to God, we learn more about who He is. To understand our Father, we need to pray and read the Bible each day both as individuals and as a family.
It’s the only way we can lead a life of intimacy with God.
2. Prayer protects
The words uttered in a prayer have wonder-working powers. Never underestimate the power of prayer. Life is full of trials and obstacles that can sometimes lead us to question faith.
Pray every morning and evening, pray for your children and teach them how to pray. When you make prayer part of your life, you reinforce your faith in the face of obstacles.
Even when challenges come your way, with prayer, you know that you are not alone as no weapon forged against you shall proper, as Isaiah 54:17 teaches us.
3. Prayer Heals
Jesus healed the sick while He was on earth. He gave authority to His disciples to heal. Jesus Christ has also given those who believe in him authority to heal. James 5: 14-16, talks about how prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. If you have any physical or emotional pain, then praying and reading the bible can begin the healing process.
4. Prayer brings breakthrough
If you are struggling to work through an issue, prayer can bring miracles. Open your heart to God and share your burdens. Even if the breakthrough doesn’t happen immediately, God gives you the grace and strength to keep going.
Teaching Our Children to Pray
The Bible contains many promises that we can include in both our prayers for children and daily confessions for our families. Children are gifts from God, and it’s the duty of parents to instill in them the values and characters they need to become good Christians. Here are simple ways to teach children how to pray.
1. Pray together every day
To begin with, pray with your child every day. He or she will be able to learn by example, and seeing you pray is a great example. Let your children know the importance of praying before a meal, in the morning and before bedtime. By setting a routine, your children will want to continue on their own.
2. Let them see you pray
It’s important that you pray aloud when your children are around. Whenever a situation arises that evokes prayer, take time and involve children. Children take note and will learn to use prayer in the same way.
3. Talk about prayer
From the beginning of your child’s life, teach them about prayer. Give your children simple explanation about prayer. It opens up dialogue and allows your children to ask questions.
1. Before meals
Praying before meals is a good habit to teach your child to be thankful for what they have.
If your children are involved in any community service, this is the perfect time to reflect on how others may find themselves in different circumstances.
Many children can learn this simple prayer over meals, “God is good. Let us thank Him for our food. By his hands we are fed. Provide us with our daily bread. Amen.”
2. Bedtime prayer
Getting children on the habit of praying before bed helps them reflect on their actions for the day, and ask for guidance for the following day. Try teaching them a simple bedtime prayer such as this: “Father, thank you for your blessings today. Thank you for taking good care of me and my family. Protect us throughout the night. Amen.”
3. Morning Prayer
This simple prayer sets the tone for the day, “Dear God, as I rise this morning, I thank you for a restful night and the gift of a new day. Guide me as I walk through this day. I am grateful for all the blessings in my life. As I start my day, I trust you to guide me in everything I do. Amen.”
Additional resources for daily prayer
There are countless Christian books and resources online to find inspiration for daily prayer rituals. For example, websites Josh McDowell Ministries and Focus on the Family offer daily devotionals and prayers for kids and adults.
For families on the go, bible apps YouVersion puts the Bible at your fingertips in an instant.

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.

Father/Mother: Let us begin with the sign of the Cross. All: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. All: Dear Jesus, we are here to spend a few minutes with you in prayer. We want to pray for ourselves, our friends and neighbours and for everyone in the world. We know that you came to call all of us to know, love and serve your heavenly Father so that we would be one big, happy family. Parent: Jesus, be close to us now as we pray to the Father in the words you taught us. All: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Parent: Jesus, we want to pray to your Mother too. We want to remember how the angel told her she was to be your Mother. We want to remember how she went to Elizabeth who praised her for saying to God, «Be it done to me as you wish.» That was saying a big «yes» to God. We want to ask Mary to pray for us because we know, Jesus, that if we are close to her, we will be close to you. All: Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. Parent: Jesus, as God, you were in existence before the world was made. Then you became a human being with Mary as your mother so that you could tell the world how you and the Father and the Holy Spirit together love all of us and want to share your holy life with us. all praise to this Most Holy Trinity. All: Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Parent: (Name) will you read for us that we will have something special to think about? (Here mother or dad asks someone to read a Bible story selected from the following.) Bible Stories The Annunciation — Luke 1:26-38. The Visitation — Luke 1:39-80. Jesus' birth — Luke 2:1-20. Jesus' baptism — Mark 1:3-11. Cana — John 2:1-11. Cure of Leper — Mark 1:40-45. Feeding Crowd — Matthew 15:32-38. Ten Lepers — Luke 17:11-19. Labourers in Vineyard — Matthew 20:1-16. Merciless Servant — Luke 18:21-35. Pharisee and Tax Collector — Luke 18:9-14. Good Samaritan — Luke 10:29-37. Good Shepherd — John 10:1-21. Parent: Let's talk a little bit about the story. Would you to tell the story yourself? Did you the story? Who were the good people in the story? Were there any bad people in the story? Suppose you had been there; what would you have done? (Here mother or dad gives each one a chance to answer. At the end, he or she can talk briefly about a lesson that can be learned from the story.) Parent: I think now that we should pray for our family and for all families. We can begin by remembering the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and St. Joseph. They had their good times and parties and they had their hard times too, when it rained every day for a week, or when Jesus went to Jerusalem and got lost, or when St. Joseph was sick, or when their friends were sick. But they were happy because they loved each other and were kind and helpful to each other. So let us pray that God will help us to be a kind and loving family with each one trying to obey God and to help one another. (The following paragraphs may be added occasionally.) Of course, the Holy Family had relatives and friends, and they cared about them too. We remember Mary went to stay with Elizabeth when she was going to have a baby. And St. Joseph was a carpenter and was always fixing things for the neighbours. And Jesus, besides being a young boy was also God, so he was always being good to others. Imagine living next to Jesus! Could he ever help you with your homework! So let us pray for our friends and relatives that God will bless them and keep them from harm. When Jesus grew up and left home to go around preaching about God the Father and his love for us all, he remembered how happy he had been with his family and tried to make everyone understand that we are really one big family, with God as our Father. he talked about being kind, about forgiving those who hurt us, about taking care of the hungry and those who have no families of their own. So let us pray for everybody in the world and especially for those who have no one to care about them. There were men and women who listened to Jesus and prayed with him for those who were poor or sick or hungry or did not know that God the Father loved them. Jesus said to many of these men and women, «I am glad that you are praying with me. But I would you to work with me too.» So the apostles and others went around preaching about God's love. Other men, and some women too were busy helping the sick and feeding the hungry and teaching the children. As we grow up, Jesus says to us, «I am glad that you are praying for your family and for others. I would you to work with me too.» To some he says, «I want you to get married and teach your children to be good and loving.» To some boys he says, «I would you to be priests when you grow up.» To others he says, «I would you to be religious brothers when you grow up.» To some girls he says, «I would you to be nuns when you grow up.» And to still others, boys and girls, he says, «I would you to grow up to be single people working in the world and helping me to make others understand that God loves them.» So let us pray that as we grow up, we will try to know what Jesus wants us to be, and we will be ready to listen to him. CLOSING PRAYER All: Dear Jesus, we pray with you to the Heavenly Father for all the men and women and children of the world, those who live with their families and those who do not. Make us kind and generous to one another and protect us with your loving care. Mary, our Mother and good St. Joseph, keep us close to Jesus so that we too will be a holy family. Amen. Parent: Now let us close by asking God's blessing. May almighty God bless us, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
