Prayer For Separated Families
Sovereign Lord, please bring my children and I together. Weave our broken hearts into one, so we can heal, grow, and praise You as a faithful family, united in Christ. Assist us in the brokenness and help us rely on each other for tomorrow. May our family grow from this hardship. May light seep into this home. We ask this in Your glorious and faithful name, Amen.
Heavenly Father, Your timing is magnificent. I have faith in Your plan and Your love for me. Even in times of pain, I know You are good, and Your destiny is almighty. I know You will not abandon my children or me. With every waking moment, and with every painful reminder, please set my eyes on Your surprisingly wonderful timeline. May my children see me praise Your plans and unexpected blessings. In Your almighty name, Amen.
Jesus, my Savior, I need Your grace. I seek You with a tired heart, one that has endured heavy hardship and regret. Hold me close, Lord, and strip me from this agony. Forgive me fully for the pain I've caused my children to walk through. Forgive me for placing my heart's needs above my children's needs. Cleanse me with Your love, and sing to my heart that I am forgiven, and I am welcomed and allowed to feel the pain as it comes. I ask this in Your graceful name. Amen.
Compassionate Father, please grant me hope in this troubled time. Open my eyes to Your blessings, and the children You have given to me. For through them, I find joy and brilliance in this life. Open my heart to the depth of their goodness, their love, and their purity. I pray that my children and I can build a future of loyalty, togetherness, and hope. May our future days be filled with sunshine and Your love. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
My Loving God, I'm beginning a new season of life. I am balancing the hurt of yesterday and the hope of tomorrow. Please heavenly Father, above all, open my heart as a parent. May my children see me as playful, loving, and faithful. May they see God through my loving actions. I pray that I show my children how hurt can deliver strength to the soul, and how glorious and restoring You are. Please comfort me as a parent. In Your name, Amen.
Father, I belong to you. I place myself anew in your hands and acknowledge you as Master and Lord of my life. Grant me the gift of a forgiving heart and cleanse me of any anger, hostility or revenge. Heal my hurts and wounds and teach me to rely on your
love. Grant me wisdom of heart and strengthen me by your grace to move on in faith, in trust and in love. Thank you Lrod for you love in my life.
O loving and creating God, bless families hurting with the pain of separation and divorce. We know that when two people are married, they mean it for life. Yet, at times, with some people, and in some very complex situations, it just doesn't happen that way.
Give peace and courage to all who have experienced the disruption caused by divorce or separation. Help them to accept their feelings of rejection, loneliness and grief.
Help them, above all, to believe in Your presence, and to believe in the Church as a source of strength and compassion.
Help all of us to be sensitive to emotional, spiritual and physical needs of children who have divorced or separated parents. Enable us to reach out in love. May our priests be aware of the pain of separated and divorced parishioners and always welcome them in parish spiritual and social activities.
Especially we pray, O God, that as we continue to recognize Jesus in the "breaking of the bread", we will carry Jesus with us and reach out to all our separated and divorced families with love, compassion and understanding. Amen.
Please shine your light upon my family.
Give us strength to overcome all of the
difficulties that we are dealing with now
and protect us against any and all problems
we may encounter in the future.
O Lord, please bring us together as we
are meant to be. May the love that binds
us only grow stronger as we fulfill the destiny
you have laid out for us.
Grant my family forgiveness for any sins we
have committed. May we also forgive one
another Lord, as it is sometimes difficult to do.
Bless us Lord,
In your name I pray, Amen
