No matter who we are, all of us experience difficult times at one point or another, especially as families. There are many reasons for this, and it can cause a lot of instability in our lives.
It could affect our family relationships, our economy, our health, our obligations, our jobs, and a lot more.
There is a saying that says that if a family prays together, it will stay together. If we do not get together and pray, we can be torn apart during this difficult time. Children can be affected as well as the adults in the home.
As much as we pray for others, we should pray even more for those close to us. Pray for one another so that God blesses us all together. As Psalm 128:1 says, “Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him.”
Before you start, save these intercessory prayers for your family.
