Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer for families

The Old Testament ends with one of the sweetest promises in all of scripture.

This is how the prophet Malachi puts it:
I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord arrives. His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers. 
Don't you love the way that it speaks about hearts turning? I know of families that need God's help to turn hearts toward each other. Please join me in prayer.

Father, we come to you as parents confessing our obstinate hearts. Turn our hearts Lord to our children. Help us to see our children with your eyes. We need your perspective and your wisdom. We need your heart for our children.

We ask you to turn the hearts of our children back to home. We pray for every prodigal and every wounded child. Turn the hearts of our children lord and help them to see us with your eyes. They need your heart Father.

Finally we ask for every orphan. We pray for those of all ages who are without parents. Turn the hearts of these dear Father to spiritual moms and dads who have hearts turned towards them.

We thank you that you have chosen the title of Father. We pray in your name.
