Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

Psalm 23: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” 

Prayer: Father, You are my shepherd, I shall not want. You make me lie down in green pastures, You lead me beside quiet waters. You restore my soul; You lead me in paths of righteousness for Your name sake! Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in Your house forever.

Prayer for specific family members, replace with names of loved ones: Father, You are my child’s shepherd, may they not want. You make my child lie down in green pastures, You lead them beside quiet waters. You restore my child’s soul; You lead him in paths of righteousness for Your name sake! Even though my child walks through the valley of the shadow of death, help him to fear no evil; for You are with him, Your rod and Your staff they comfort him. You prepare a table before my child in the presence of his enemies; You anoint his head with oil; his cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy will follow him all the days of his life and he will dwell in Your house forever.

Lord, may my children, our family, be content in You and You alone. You are our shepherd, we have all we need.  You lead us, you restore us. Surely goodness and mercy will follow us all the days of our lives…because of You, Lord, we are grateful. For your glory.
