Compassion & Reverence (prayer)

1 cor 13 7

(Join with me in prayer to bless your family.)

Lord,

We thank You for our family,

Whether large or small,

Traditional or non-traditional.

We thank You for putting these people in our lives

And pray a blessing over them.

We pray that children would honor their parents,

That things would go well with them.

We pray that fathers would show compassion on their children,

For You have said even the wicked give good gifts to their children.

We pray that mothers would have reverent behavior,

And so teach their daughters to love their husbands.

In all of the ways we fail to be the family You designed,

Help us to become more virtuous.

Give them health and provision

And comfort them in times of loss and trial.

We pray we would draw nearer to You

That we may know You as our true Father.

In Christ’s Name, Amen.
