7 Prayers for Family Unity: Come Together and Peace

Families are among the most precious units to exist as they offer a shoulder to lean on. People will do everything possible to maintain peace and unity in their families, although sometimes things can go awry. For example, when parents split up or members dispute

A family will likely flourish physically and spiritually with peace and unity, but the opposite attracts constant quarrels, misunderstandings, and chaos. That’s why these two factors are crucial for a family to thrive as the body of Christ. 

Below are seven essential breakthrough prayers for family unity, peace, and togetherness.

Is your family experiencing spiritual warfare or do you want to increase the level of unity? You can confidently say the above prayer with trust and faith, asking God to keep you together in love

A lack of unity in the family is undesirable. Factors such as constant quarrels, inability to initiate and conclude a discussion harmoniously, excessive differences in opinions, or simply failure to have dinner together can spur family disunity.  

Such experiences can be too challenging, especially for the kids, as the devil strives to use these vulnerable moments to gain roots in the family. However, you can eliminate them from your beautiful family through a prayer for unity.

I come before You today praying for the beautiful family You blessed me with to remain united and live peacefully according to Your teachings. 

I pray that You eliminate any disunity and misunderstanding and enable our hearts and ears to remain open to one another. I pray that every operation and plan we have as a family may be out of Your love and not for our gain.

In His letter to the Church, Paul asked believers to remain united in love to receive the treasures of wisdom, knowledge, and full riches of complete understanding (Colossians 2:2-3).

These promises aren’t only bound to the Church but also our families as they represent one of God’s divinely formed units. 

You can use the above prayer as a starting point for your family’s unity and then personalize them with time to suit the specific needs concerning unity and peace. Even better, you can make a norm to accompany your morning or night family prayers with a few scriptures

Take, for example, 1 Corinthians 1:10:

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.

“Dear Lord, 

Thank You for the gift of a loving and amazing family. I kneel before You this hour, praying that You may bring this unit together. I come against every work of the evil one to separate us or make us think negatively of one another.

Many families today split up for different reasons such as differing interests, dishonesty and lack of love among partners. All these reasons don’t please God because it is His desire for a family to be united always.

Togetherness in a family is an essential factor, even when you’re not living under the same roof. If your family is disunited for whatever reason, you can say this prayer believing that God will bring it back together again. 

You can also strive to discuss whatever might have caused the division and work on finding solutions, forgiving one another, and restoring your broken family. A family that lives together in unity is usually happy and contented

A family is the closest and most essential human bond, making it crucial to pray for peace and unity. By family, it doesn’t only mean one’s blood relative but also members of a church as well.

God loves families and wishes them to experience eternal peace on earth and in Heaven by adhering to His word and commands. Therefore, if you live according to God’s teachings as a family, you will likely remain connected even in Heaven.

No one chooses the family they are born into. But it is our responsibility to create the family of our dreams through prayers instead of hoping we weren’t born into it. If you desire a peaceful family, you should pray about it while leading as an excellent example

God created and ordained family as a sacred union since the beginning when He saw that Adam didn’t fit to stay alone but needed a companion according to Genesis 2.

Your family, too, has been ordained by God; thus, you should live according to His word, which advocates for peace, love, and unity

“Almighty God, 

Thank You for the wonderful gift of my precious family. I love and treasure them with all my heart. Today I ask that You may intervene in all our plans and actions so we may grow in love and peace.

It’s almost impossible to find a family that has never fought or a relationship that has never experienced misunderstandings before.

Scuffles, quarrels, conflicts, and chaos are part of life, but we shouldn’t let them become the order of the day and take over our family’s peace and unity. 

Wherever a challenge arises in our family affecting its unity, it’s vital to actively find the leading cause and possible solutions. This can be done when everybody puts their differences aside and attentively listens to each other’s opinions. 

If things still don’t work, you can turn to God through the above prayer for family unity, which He shall grant

Lack of unity and peace in a family can impact families negatively, such as preventing people from achieving unit goals and keeping them away from God’s favor.

Conversely, a family that lives harmoniously is so much happier and filled with God’s blessings and breakthroughs in every aspect of life. 

As you pray for other family needs, it’s crucial to mention peace and unity, because the enemy fights hard to break families apart. Speak 1 Peter 3:8 into your family, which says:

Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.

Before you leave, try these morning prayers for your family.

Will These Prayers Bring Unity to My Family?

Certainly! You can rest assured that these prayers will bring unity to your family, even during harsh conflicts.

Job 22:27 confirms that when we pray unto God, He will hear and grant our needs.
