Prayer for the Family

Since God instituted the family, established His divine order for marriage and family life and a strong, healthy family is one of the pillars of a strong and healthy society, pray that the Lord would establish strong families in San Antonio, according to the Biblical model.

  • Pray that these families be comprised of a man, a woman (a married husband and wife) and children.
  • Pray for strong marriages where husbands love their wives just as Christ loved His Church (Eph 5:21, Eph 5:25, 28) and where wives respect their husbands (Eph 5:33)
  •  Pray that fathers and mothers individually have a strong relationship with God and His Word and together reestablish a family altar where they regularly have family times with their children in the Word, in worship and in prayer.
  • Pray that children obey, love and honor their parents (Eph 6:1)
  • Pray that fathers would not provoke or stir up their children to wrath or anger but that they would lovingly raise them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Eph 6:2)
  • Pray that the Lord would set the lonely (the unmarried and single parents) in families. (Ps 68:6)
  •  Pray for a significant reduction in divorce in Christian marriages in the city.  The greatest number of divorces in Bexar County occur between January and March each year.
