Psalm 115:13-14, He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great. The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
Heavenly Father, You Are ABBA Father. And we Thank You for the grace, mercy and favor of Your Fatherhood. And today, we pray Your will be done concerning our relationships in Jesus’ name. Lord we pray for parents today. Bless fathers and mothers, husbands and wives today. Bless them to unite in the purpose of raising their children in the admonition of the Lord. Lord, we rebuke the spirit of division that tries to tear the family apart from the top down. Lord, we pray for the marriages You have joined together in Jesus’ name. And we decree and declare husbands and wives are drawing closer to You Lord, and closer to each other, so they are like a three-fold cord that is not easily broken. We pray for believing spouses who are fighting for their marriage. Lord, we pray You give them the wisdom and understanding they need to navigate the challenges they face in their relationship in Jesus’ name. Help them to understand the blessing of sanctifying their households, and the reward You have for those who endure in Jesus’ name. Now we take authority over every unclean spirit in Jesus’ name and rebuke every spirit of anger, bitterness, confusion, fear, jealousy, envy, pride, strife, adultery, unforgiveness, misunderstandings, silence, poor communication, and competition that would try to bring division between husbands and wives. We bind them up and we cast them out now in Jesus’ name. And we decree and declare in Jesus’ name that no man, no woman, or no demon in hell will be able to tear apart what God has joined together. For we confess the marriage is blessed, the children are blessed, and the household is blessed in Jesus’ name. We confess loving marriages are bringing glory to You Oh God as they minister to lost souls seeking to know the love of God, and receive hope for their future. And we declare victory for them in Jesus’ name.
Because we know a house divided cannot stand, we pray Lord that You bless them so their relationships with their children will be blessed. Bless our sons and daughters to learn from the mistakes of their elders and walk in newness of life. Bless parents with wisdom for parenting, teaching, and being the first example of honor in the home. Lord, let our children see honor and be raised to be children who honor their parents, who honor You Lord, and are blessed to live long on the earth. Heavenly Father, Because Your Name is ABBA Father, we ask that You be Father to the fatherless. Bless adopted children in this nation and all over the world with loving parents who are able to shower them with love, that they come to know Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord, and enjoy the favor of being a member of Your Kingdom family. Bless them to walk in forgiveness and love, and to bless and share their experience of God’s favor on their life with others. Lord, bless our siblings today. We rebuke the spirit of rejection that has divided families for generations. Lord, we ask that You touch the hearts of the members of our extended family, our grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and even our distant relatives today in Jesus’ name. Lord we pray You step in to show us how, and at what points to unite with our brothers and sisters, that we might follow peace with all men and holiness in Jesus’ name, that we forgive and love each other like never before, that there might be peace in our homes and peace throughout our families in Jesus’ name.
Lord we pray for our friends. Lord bless our friends who have been a helping hand when we needed them, a shoulder to cry on when we were low. Lord bless them, favor them and return to them double what they have given to us. And Lord, as some friends have left or walked away, we pray now that You encourage them, and send us new friends. Heavenly Father, bless us with friendships with those who will encourage us to honor Your word and honor each other as we grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father, we give You permission to shut the door on any friendships or relationships that are unholy, unhealthy and are not in alignment with Your perfect will for our lives in this season. And in Jesus’ name, we decree and declare the yoke of all unholy relationships, manipulative relationships, abusive relationships, and dangerous relationships be destroyed now in Jesus’ name. Lord bless our friends with the patience they need to wait on You this year. Heavenly Father, bless singles who are waiting on the right one, the saved one, the sanctified one, the faithful one, who know the word of God, who have a strong relationship with You God, who walk with integrity, who are holy, healed, healthy, whole, who can help strengthen us, encourage us, who will help make us better, will encourage us to pursue our purpose, stay on our assignments, and compel us to draw closer in our relationship with You oh God. Lord, we speak by faith, that You are sending us friends who know what it means to stick close and still prioritize decency, order, holiness and righteousness. Thank You Lord for sending us friends who are healthy for us spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, friends who will tell us the truth according to the word of God and not what we want to hear. Lord send us friends we can trust to cover us and restore us in love, friends who’s destiny we can be mutually excited about, and will push us to mature in our relationship with You oh God. Lord bless our work relationships, that we comfort one another and be at peace in these difficult times, and bless our church relationships as we serve one another, that we might be edified, built up, and we come to know that we have no lack, because all our needs are supplied as members in the body of Christ. Lord, because You have revealed mysteries concerning Your Kingdom, we now have the revelation of Jesus Christ in our hearts, and we Thank you for putting all our relationships in the right perspective, and for the confidence You give us each day, that as we do Your will, we are reminded that we are Your children, and we belong to You Oh God. For all these blessings, we give You all the praise, all the glory and honor for them being done now in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
