Today we are asking the Lord to restore the broken family.
Personal RepentanceLord, forgive me if I have mirrored the sins of my culture through breaking marriage covenants, dishonoring my spouse, neglecting my children, and/or putting the god of materialism above You.
Corporate RepentanceFather, we repent for breaking Your commandments regarding how to conduct marriage and family in ways that release Your blessings upon us, our children, and all of society. Forgive us for neglecting to disciple the next generation regarding holy relationships, marriage, and family.
- God of creation, we call out to You for the healing and restoration of our families to Your original design. May husbands and wives honor one another and children experience a safe and loving environment.
- Give parents wisdom for a redirection of priorities, first a turning to You in repentance, then refocusing on the health and wellbeing of family members and relationships.
- Heavenly Father, we pray that pastors would teach on the biblical model and role of parents and the family.
- We ask that You would awaken fathers and mothers to the need to pray with and for their families consistently, intentionally, and fervently – that You would restore the family altar in homes across our nation.
