Father, we pray that the homes of Christian families today, may return to the foundational bedrock of their Christian faith, where Christ is the focus of their hope, where prayer and praise become the daily delight of each member of the household, and where godly principles and practices become the standard and not the exception. Lord, we recognise that the foundations of family life and godly living are being eroded at the very core, by those that would seek to undermine godly principles and replace them with doctrines of demons, pagan practices and devilish devices. But Father, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself said that He would build His church and that the gates of hell would not prevail against her.
Strengthen we beseech You, Christian families today, and may they be drawn back into closer communion with You day by day as husbands and fathers resume their rightful place as the God-ordained head of their household, and their wives adorn the virtuous apparel of the godly and submissive wife. Where children learn respect and obedience to their parents, and when Christ is honoured at every meal-table and reverenced at every bed-side.
Hear oh Lord, the desires and petitions of Your servants, and may the Christian families of our nation and throughout the world, be united in family prayer, family praise and family fellowship with each other and with You. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
