Family is the foundational unit of society. Also, the family is our first ministry. They are the people who are always with us and those we will spend the rest of our lives with. For that reason, the family ought to stick together no matter what happens. And praying for our families always is one way to achieve this goal.
Our world is filled with events and situations that can cause great fear and anxiety. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and live imprisoned by fear. We are promised in God’s Word that he is faithful and will protect us in 2nd Thessalonians 3:3 which says But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
God wants us to let go of fear and to live life to the fullest! When you or your family are overcome by worry, pray this powerful prayer for protection to remember who God is and the protection he has promised you.

Lord, I pray Your emotional, physical, and spiritual protection over my family and loved ones. Keep evil far from them, and help them to trust You as their refuge and strength.
I pray You will guard their minds from harmful instruction, and grant them discernment to recognize truth.
I pray You will make them strong and courageous in the presence of danger, recognizing that You have overcome and will set right all injustice and wrong one day.
Help them to find rest in Your shadow, as they live in the spiritual shelter You provide for them. Let them know that the only safe place is in Jesus, and that their home on earth is only temporary.
Guide our way, Lord, as we go on with our lives today. Also, be our shield as we go back home later. May you always preserve the bond that we have as a family, and may we look forward to seeing each other once again at home.
Guard our home as well, God, that no harm will fall on it as we are away. May it continue to be a sanctuary of blessing, comfort, and love for each one of us. Let it always be a restful place for our tired bodies at the end of the day.
Continue to protect us, Lord, as we rest at night. Allow no intruders or calamities to disturb my home tonight. I trust in your mighty power to keep me and my family safe from any form of evil.
We also pray that You would restore the bonds that have been broken with some of our family members. We know, God, that there is nothing You would want more than feuding relatives to reconcile with each other.
But we also admit, Lord, that we cannot do this on our own. For that, we ask Your Holy Spirit to surround us with Your love. May we be filled to the brim with love, that it may overflow and we may share it with our families.
Allow us to be instruments of Your blessings to them. In due time, Lord, let our relationships also be restored. All these we pray in Your Name, Amen.
