Prayer For Family Restoration

Father, I repent of the years that I have wantonly wasted. I desire to turn away from my misspent years and return to You with all my heart, and get back into a right relationship to You.

Lord, I know that I do not deserve to have this prayer answered, but I ask for the sake of Jesus Christ, Who died to pay the price for my sins that You would look down on me with pity and mercy and that You would forgive me of my sins and give me back those years I have lost, when I was walking in unbelief and wanton ignorance of Your love and grace towards me.

I know that I do not deserve Your kindness, but You are a good and gracious God, long-suffering and of great kindness. I pray that You would restore those lost years and ask that You would enable me to start to live a life that is honouring to You. I ask this in the name of Jesus,


Heavenly Father, I feel I have wasted so many years of my life pursuing wrong things and getting involved with worldly activities, fleshly pursuits and the various temporary things of life, while neglecting the important spiritual issues, that are eternal and lasting.

I ask for Your forgiveness and pray that in Your grace You would restore to me the years that the locusts have eaten, the years that I have foolishly wasted.

Lord, I want to be a good and faithful servant when I stand before Your throne, and I know that most if not all of the good works I have done are likely to be burned up, knowing that I have been striving in the flesh instead of resting in You and letting Your Holy Spirit live and work through me. Restore to me the heavenly joy and inner peace that has been evading me. Help me to focus on the eternal rather than the temporal and from this day forward, may I start to live my life in a way that you would have me live. In Jesus' name I pray,


Dear Heavenly Father, my marriage is falling apart and I feel helpless and hopeless and I don't know what to do. Lord, I feel powerless and just ask You to please restore my marriage. Bring us back into a loving relationship with each other and with You.

Lord, I confess that I have fallen so far short of how I should have behaved and do not deserve a second chance, but I ask Lord that in Your grace You would restore again the joy we had at the beginning and help us both to move forward in our marriage and help us to live in a way that is pleasing to You.

Heal the wounds we have both received from each other and revive and restore us so that we may move forward in our lives and life together. Lord, You have promised to heal the broken-hearted and I pray that in a wonderful way You would restore my marriage. In Jesus' name I pray,


Forgive me Father God, I have realised that I have become so engrossed in my own affairs and interests that I have wandered far away from You and my life seems to be pretty meaningless.

Thank You, Lord, that in Your grace You have sustained me thus far, but I know Father that I need to get my life back on a spiritual level. I do thank and praise You that in Your grace You have got my attention and made me realise my need to return back into a right relationship with You.

Thank You for sustaining me even when I had wandered far from You, and thank You that Your steadfast love never ceases and that Your tender mercies are new every morning. You are a great and faithful God. Help me I pray, to get a proper perspective on life and I ask that You would restore the joy of my salvation. Help me to keep my eyes looking to Jesus my feet firmly planted on the road of righteousness and peace. This I ask in Jesus' name,


Loving Father, I come to You knowing that You are a God Who hears and answers prayers. I ask Lord, that You would visit each member of our family, which has become so disunited and critical of each other, and restore the joy of Your salvation in all of our hearts.

Lord, we know that times are difficult and that stress often play a part in foolish disputes and disunity in a family or home - but in times of trouble we should remain closely united as a family unit, as well as keeping close to You.

Thank You, Lord, for every member of my family. Minister, I pray, to each one of us in a unique and wonderful way. Touch each of our hearts and help us to stop our foolish squabbling and become united together in thought and deed.

May Your Spirit of peace and hope fill each of our hearts as we recognise that our hope is in You alone. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,


Father God, Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit,
Please forgive me for anything I have done to knowingly or unknowingly give place to the enemy. My family and the children You have given me are a gift from God. I repent for speaking negative things in my frustration and allowing any word curses to be enacted over my loved ones. Right now I break the power of negative words and ask that the power of those words and any lingering memories associated with those words be broken over each of my family members.

I repent and I renounce all unloving spirits, spirits of rejection, fault finding spirits, unclean spirits, spirits of lust, anger, impatience, inferiority, insecurity, fear, witchcraft (control) and spirits of rebellion. I break the assignment of the enemy and I bind these spirits in the name of Jesus Christ. I forbid them from operating against myself or any of my family members. I appropriate the victory of Your cross and tell these spirits to obey the voice of Your servant. I submit to the Lord Jesus Christ and I resist you, Satan. Leave me and my family at once in Jesus name!"

Holy Spirit, please release Your healing, Your love, and the ministry of reconciliation into my family. Please fill us with the love of God, a desire for purity, and with the fullness of Your Holy Spirit. Heal the hearts, minds, and belief system of each of my family members. Let Your truth replace the lies of the enemy. Give us revelation so that the enemy is defeated completely. I ask that the power of resurrection life be given to me and my family members to bring healing and total restoration. Let the respect, honor, loyalty and love be restored. Heal our emotions, our memories, our self image, faith and our trust. In every area where there has been a breach, let it be healed and made whole, filled with the love and Spirit of God, in Jesus' name, amen.

Heavenly Father, thank You that You care for all of Your creation and all of Your children, but Lord, there are so many areas in our home and family life that are gong wrong that it seems that our whole family is about to implode.

Father, I know that we have all made mistakes. I know that have made mistakes and ask Your forgiveness. We have all made some foolish choices, but Father I know that You are in the business of restoring those that are hurting and mending those that are broken, and I pray that You would restore our broken family at this time.

Lord, I come to You for guidance and help to restore our family's relationships. I pray that we would renew our love for each other and may the respect that we used to show to one another return. Restore the family unity we once enjoyed and may we all look to You to lead and guide us as we move forward in our relationship with each other and with You. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father,

I am praying for healing and restoration of our marriage. Please send your Holy Spirit to Mark for him to be healed and find his way back to us. Please touch his heart and remind him of all the sacrifices we have surpassed with You.

My heart is breaking every time our kids would ask me about their father. Both our son and daughter were so close to their daddy and I know that it will break their hearts if they get to know of our situation. We are raising two wonderful children and would not want them to feel we are incomplete.
As each day passes, it is getting difficult. Being apart from my husband, and raising two kids in a foreign country is challenging. But then I know you are always with us, You will never let go and You have better plans for our family. Please tell me dear Lord, what is it that you want me to learn from this situation? Continue to guide me and guard my heart with the works of the devil. I believe that you are working on Mark as well. I trust that you will heal us both in your perfect time.

My heart reaches out to you, dear Lord. Please continue to protect my kids while I am at work. Please give me all the strength I would need to raise my kids in the absence of my husband. I am praying for provisions as well. Please help Mark to use this time to heal, to realize what is worth, to be better, to be ready and be the man he had always wanted to be. I still believe that Mark is a good man, a great father to our kids and a loving husband. Please break any strongholds that he has right now, may it be his pride, ego, insecurities, hatred, pain, and all that the devil is telling him. But let him see the love, forgiveness, compassion, and peace in our hearts, in our family.

Thank you dear Lord and we love you so much.

This we ask through Christ our Lord, Amen.
