      PRAYER FOR FAMILY

      Dear Lord we ask that you would bless us with divine health. We come against all forms of sickness in Jesus’ Name. We pray for healing in those that are with disease in Jesus’ Name. 

      Where our spirits have become weary, revive us oh Lord! We pray for spiritual health , revive our prayer lives revive our faith and all areas that have slumbered within us, in Jesus’ Name. 

      May my family be protected from harm, misfortune and sadness. May we enjoy the privilege of spending time together to share joy, celebrate happy occasions and to be there for each other when there is need for comfort. 

      May good health prevail and may there be ever present faith in God’s mercy and grace. In Jesus Name, Amen.

  3. What’s more interesting is the fact that we spoke yesterday in church about the importance of prayer and the most interesting thing is that I stumbled on your post now seeing a whole lot of things that we need to pray about. To be honest, this is nice and I will make sure to use what I see here as a prayer point when it’s time for me to pray. Thank you.

    • Thank you! You are such a blessing, so thankful for a praying church family!

      Blessings,

      Renea 

  4. It is very good to have a prayerfully boyant family, likewise it is good to personally solicit for one’s family and pray for them. I so much appreciate this thought, its filled with important and really helpful things and prayers that you can say upon your family to help them see through things easily. Thanks.

  5. Hello Renea. Thanks for sharing this post as it is one of the ways to bring a family together and also make them successful in all their endeavours too. As we all know, prayer is the master key —There is nothing that cannot be found in the Bible; there is always a Bible scripture for everything concerning life, finance, marriage, courage etc. The Bible is a complete book to consult in other to speak positivity and blessings over our family through prayers.

    It’s all cool.

    • Amen, so true! The Bible is our instructions to life. Thank you for commenting!

      Blessings,

      Renea

  6. Prayer is the key and with it, everything else is made possible. Thank you for sharing this hack as they can make the difference in every situation.  Prayer always points to something better about to come or something better that is in place. Constant prayer can prove to be the change and also adjust situations for better

    • Yes, That is so true! Prayer can change situations, Thank you for your comments!

      Blessings,

      Renea

  7. I like the way you’ve composed this post, many times people don’t pay attention to the welfare of their family because of some reasons. Speaking blessings over your family just like you are blessing yourself.  You’ve listed so many categories of prayer points to pick from based on your need. I’ll bookmark this website, thanks for sharing.

  8. Oh my, this is just beautiful. I don’t think that there is anything as magnificent as being able to speak good words to people around you. There are so many things to speak to God about concerning them and I believe that prayer is the key so this is what I will use myself. Thanks.

    • Thank you so much! Love seeing families being prayed over!

      Blessings to you and your family,

      Renea
