Scriptures to Pray for Family Unity

1) Father God . . . I ask you to help each member of our family (name them) to be completely humble and gentle in our interactions with each other; and to be patient, bearing with one another ‘s faults in love – even when we’ re tired,
frustrated, angry, or hurt. Help us make every effort to maintain unity in the Spirit in this home. Please bind us together in peace. (Ephesians 4:2-3)

2) Gracious God . . . help us (name your family members) to love each other fervently. Grow our love so deep that it is able and willing to overcome and forgive a multitude of sins. Inspire a spirit of hospitality in (family member names) and enable us to cheerfully share our home with those who need a meal or a place to stay. God, I acknowledge that you have given spiritual gifts to each one in this family. Help us put our own needs aside and use those gifts to serve one another well. We will rely on the strength and energy you alone supply. I pray that everything we do within this family unit will bring you glory through the One who lives in us – your Son, Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 4:8-11)

3) God – you are the One who gives us perseverance and encouragement. In you, we have hope. Help our family (name family menbers) live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:5)

4) Loyal and trustworthy God, help my spouse (insert name here) and I always honor our marriage and clearly see how valuable and precious it really is. As we honor our marriage and our covenant with you, help us keep our marriage bed pure. (Hebrews 13:4)
