To Change My Relationship With My Unhappy Parents

Oh dear God, I seem to be unable to do anything right for my parents and when they are not shouting at each other, they join together to pick on me. I am finding that life at home is becoming unbearable. Lord Jesus, all I want to do is to get out of the house and live my life somewhere else, quietly, somewhere that is not constantly a battleground.

In my heart Lord, I know that running away is not the answer, but I also know that You do have all the answers to all our difficulties. So I ask that You would change the dynamics of our home so that all the bickering stops. Change things at home I pray, and change each one of us to become more considerate to the needs of each other. I know that this is what Jesus would do.

Lord, I also know that both my parents are unhappy and life is not as good as it used to be. I love my parents Lord, and pray that You would do something to make our home a place of hope and peace and safety. Lord, I pray that You would help my parents to draw closer to each other and to You Lord, as they did in the past. Change our relationship for the better. May we all become what You would have us be, so that as a family we can be more like Jesus. In His name I pray,
