Prayer For Husband And Children
Lord, You are gracious and merciful, yet You are all-powerful and understanding. This world can be a fearful place and I pray that You would give my husband courage. Lord, infuse his character with courage for daily decisions and the difficult ones as well.
Father, I praise You for my husband, Your unique creation. Please guard his heart and mind, Jesus. Protect him from temptation and fill him up with the good things he needs. You've promised to fill his soul with what he needs and I ask You to do just that.
Lord, I pray that You would bless my husband's work. That he would be diligent and prosperous. That You would give him wisdom and discernment. God, I pray You would give him strength to walk the opportunities you provide. Thank you, Lord.
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.
