Prayer for peace in the family is a Christian source of love, harmony, and unity. These days people are finding it hard to operate in their day-to-day relationships. They destroy one another with their words and sometimes actions.
We Belong to Each Other
As Mother Teresa said, “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” Perhaps this is because they have never been taught how genuine relationships should thrive according to the Word of God. Therefore, praying for peace in the family is one of the most important things you can ever do. So pray, and peace will be back to your family!
Prayer for Peace in the Family
Heavenly Father, I come before you humbly today with a prayer for peace in the family. Lord, you know more than anyone that my family is a gift from your heart. Please help me understand this gift that you have given me. You have meant for my home to be a place of peace. It is not your will for it to be a place of heartache and daily stress. Help each family member in my household function the way that you would have us to. We know that in this world, we will never be able to escape trouble but remind us that you overcame it! As we submit to you, we can also be overcomers in the power of your might and strength.
Not only do I pray for my own family but also others. Many families dread going home after work. They dread this because home is no longer a place of peace or refuge. They feel insecure. Help them accept themselves for their shortcomings. Also, help them learn to act kindly and longsuffering toward one another. Help them communicate about daily needs and then bring those needs before your throne.
Father, we know that your word says, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16). Therefore, we claim your promises, and we stand on them. We believe that peace in the family is possible. Your word states all things are possible! So, plant in their heart an unconditional love they do not understand. Help them love even when they have been wronged. Help them shine your love in their actions because love is more than just a feeling. It is the very essence of you!
Also, we know that “love with conditions” will never last. Love with conditions only cares if specific requirements are met. Love without conditions does not care if they are satisfied or not. It loves regardless! Help my family and all families have peace by loving the way you do. That is the only accurate way to have peace. Thank you, Lord, for hearing this prayer for peace in the family. In Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.
This is just an example of prayer. Feel free to change the words to make them more relevant to your family situation.

However, this prayer must be prayed with a pure heart! You even must go before God without having any selfish motives. The book of James warns that God will not answer some prayers if we come to Him with a heart of selfishness. Please read the Bible verse below.
“When you ask you do not receive because you ask with wrong motives that you may spend what you get on your pleasures” (James 4:3).
