Here is a prayer for families. This prayer is based on Psalm 112
Psalm 112 (The Voice)
Praise the Eternal!
How blessed are those who revere the Eternal,
who turn from evil and take great pleasure in His commandments.
Their children will be a powerful force upon the earth;
this generation that does what is right in God’s eyes will be blessed.
His house will be stocked with wealth and riches,
and His love for justice will endure for all time.
When life is dark, a light will shine for those who live rightly—
those who are merciful, compassionate, and strive for justice.
Good comes to all who are gracious and share freely;
they conduct their affairs with sound judgment.
Nothing will ever rattle them;
the just will always be remembered.
They will not be afraid when the news is bad
because they have resolved to trust in the Eternal.
Their hearts are confident, and they are fearless,
for they expect to see their enemies defeated.
They give freely to the poor;
their righteousness endures for all time;
their strength and power is established in honor.
The wicked will be infuriated when they see the good man honored!
They will clench their teeth and dissolve to nothing;
and when they go, their wicked desires will follow.
Father God, I thank you that our family will revere You in our daily lives, in our decisions and how we treat each other. May the path and direction taken by the father and mother in this family be a path that will encourage our children to follow after You. We ask for your grace to be the mother and father to our children that they need so that they will grow up to fulfill the purpose and plans you have for their lives. We pray for divine provision for our family. That all of our needs are met according to our glorious riches in Christ Jesus. We pray that Your light will shine in our family so that even in the darkest hours of our journey we will be able to see the way. Make a way for us through the difficulties. Bring us to the broad open places. Give us grace so that we will continuously be givers, even in the times when we have little. Guard and protect us from evil. Protect our children. In the end, we know that we will win with You every time and we look forward to the day when our enemies are defeated before us. We look forward to the day when our enemies, according to Your word, will flee and along with them they will take their evil desires. Every thing that the enemy has stolen we ask that it be restore to us seven times. Heal every broken thing within our family. Heal the hurts and restore the broken hearts. Keep us in the center of Your will, in Jesus name, amen.
