Prayer for the Family

Father I praise you for the plan you have for my family.  I praise you because my marriage exemplifies the gospel and my children are being molded daily into the image of Christ. I renounce all fear, strife, anger, wrath, unkindness, laziness, lying, disrespect, criticism, selfishness, and rebellion from my home and our hearts.  In this home we are patient, kind, not jealous.  We do not brag and are not arrogant.  We do not act unbecomingly, we do not seek our own.  We are not provoked, take no account of wrong suffered, do not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoice with truth.  In this home we bear all things, believe God fully, hope for the best in every situation, and endure.  We never fail.  Though we may lose a battle, we bear up stronger and ultimately win.
