Family Problems

Dear Lord God, You know all about the hardship and strife of this family. Please intervene in a wonderful and powerful way. Jesus, please give them faith so they will allow You to live in their hearts. Heal their brokenness. Calm the storms. Plant a seed of faith in their hearts that will grow strong and deep. Fill them up with your “Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.” May it overflow and change their lives and their relationship. Amen.


For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-20)

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32)

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4)

Wives, understand and support your husbands by submitting to them in ways that honor the Master. Husbands, go all out in love for your wives. Don’t take advantage of them. Children, do what your parents tell you. This delights the Master no end. (Colossians 3:18-20, THE MESSAGE)
