Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me and choosing me before you made the world. You are my true Fathermy creator, redeemer, sustainer, and the true end of all things, including my life. I love you, I trust you, I worship you. I give myself over to you, Father, to be one with you as Jesus is one with you. Thank you for proving your love for me by sending Jesus. I receive him and all his life and all his work which you ordained for me. Thank you for including me in Christ, forgiving me my sins, granting me his righteousness, making me complete in him. Thank you for making me alive with Christ, raising me with him, seating me with him at your right hand, establishing me in his authority, and anointing me with your love and your Spirit and your favor. I receive it all with thanks and give it total claim to my lifemy spirit, soul, and body, my heart, mind, and will.

I honor you as my Lord, and I surrender every aspect and dimension of my life to you. I give you my spirit, soul, and body, my heart, mind, and will. I cover myself with your bloodmy spirit, soul, and body, my heart, mind, and will. I ask your Holy Spirit to restore me in you, renew me in you, and lead this time of prayer.

Father God, I thank you for the authority given me in the name of Jesus, and with this authority I command the enemy to flee from my family. I declare strongholds broken. No longer will my children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren be slaves to sin. Satan has no power over my husband. He has no power over my mother. He has no power over my father. Where there was once bickering and backstabbing, there will be peace. Where there was once resentment and anger, there will be forgiveness. Where there was once violence and corruption, there will be honesty and righteousness. I stand with my family and for my family. I say no more, Satan. It stops today! In Jesus' mighty name, I believe, Amen.

Father God, it is my heart's desire to be a godly wife. To be the wife you have designed me to be. Quiet me and temper me, Lord, so that I will allow my husband to lead me and encourage me. May I model respect for him for our children. May I build him up according to your principles. Make me aware of any trick the enemy would use to divide us. United in marriage we will stand in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Thank you, Father, for my husband. Establish him as the head of this house. Rise up in him, Holy Spirit. Plant the spirit of leadership in him. Bring forth courage and a warrior attitude, so he can stand against the attacks of the enemy. May he rely on you and put his trust in you. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Thank you, God, for the gift of motherhood. What a joy and a blessing my children are to me! But I cannot do it without you. Partner with me, Lord. Help me to lead with your example. Help me to speak your words of love, of kindness, of forgiveness, and correction. Holy Spirit, work through me when I don't know what to do, when I don't know what to say, when I don't have the answers. Teach me to discipline my children and to set boundaries. Be my courage, Father, when the testing and the pushing comes. Be my fortress. I trust my parenting to you in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Father, thank you for my family. Thank you for the laughter, the learning, the tears, and the triumphs that fill this home. It is my desire that my family would seek you, Lord. Jesus, I invite you into this house. Teach us. Root us in your word. We belong to you, God. May we honor you with our actions and our words. May we build each other up according to your principles. May we extend forgiveness when there is hurt. May we glorify you in our victories! In Jesus' mighty name, Amen.

Father, as the priest and head of this household, I declare and decree, As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Josh. 24:15).

Lord, we acknowledge and welcome the presence of Your Holy Spirit here in our home. We thank You, Father, that Your Son, Jesus, is here with us because we are gathered together in His name.

As spiritual leader of this home, I declare on the authority of Your Word that my family will be mighty in the land; this generation of the upright will be blessed.
