Family Healing and Restoration Prayers (1): God’s Purpose for Your Home

Welcome to the month of May.

This month, the Lord is inspiring my heart to focus on families and intercede for family healings and restorations. I am therefore writing this post to challenge you to join me in praying for your very own family.

No doubt, the enemy’s biggest focus is the family system. After destabilizing the first family, he successfully gained entry into the world and robbed man his place of dominion.

This month, let us pray and declare that the light of God will shine in our families and those who are not saved will encounter the power of Christ’s love. Those who are ill will be healed and those who are going through one challenge or the other will be restored.

There are so many good wishes you have for your family, but scolding, complaining and whining, planning and working is not enough to bring those wishes to come to pass.

The Bible says in Proverbs 21 vs. 31 that “The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD.

God wants you to stand in authority and claim your family’s salvation, healing, deliverance, and prosperity. He wants you to present your family to Him daily in prayers. As you do, great things will begin to happen and you will see a great manifestation of God’s power.

Declare with me now…

My family will not miss out in God’s plans, in Jesus name.


God’s Plan for Your Family

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”– Jeremiah 29:11

The best way to identify God’s plan for your home and family is to go through the scriptures and look at the first family He created. Adam and Eve were put in an estate where they had all they ever would want. Their only responsibility was to care for the garden. The plan was clearly spelled out in Genesis 1:26-28:

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,  and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

27 So God created mankind in his own image,  in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Unfortunately, the enemy, the devil attacked the family and robbed them of God’s inheritance.

But thank God, this original plan has not changed. Through Christ, God has restored us all to His original plans.  But just like the devil attacked the first family, the devil is still attacking homes and families these days, planting quarrels, diseases, separations, prodigality, and so on.

Recognize that God’s plan for your home and family is peace, love, divine health, prosperity, mutual respect, and understanding.

As a child of God, you must stand your ground and continue to resist the attack of satan on your family.

Complaining and fighting won’t solve any problems.

Partner with God and learn to start resisting the devil over your home and declaring His promises daily. As you do, your family will surely experience God’s visitation and your innermost desires will be answered.

If you feel there is demonic oppression against your marriage and home, let’s take up the WORD this month and start sending fire into the camp of the enemy.

Memorize and pray these prayers for your home all through this month. I will send out more prayer points for family healings, marriage restorations, and for your children this month. Use these prayers and others to pray for your home and other homes.

I believe that God’s presence will be released in your home this season in Jesus name.


Scriptures for Meditation

1 Timothy 5:8 – Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

1 Peter 4:8 – Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 – “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ephesians 4:2-3 – “Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.”

Psalm 34:3-9: Trust in the Lord and do good;   dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

4 Take delight in the Lord,   and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5 Commit your way to the Lord;    trust in him and he will do this:

6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,    your vindication like the noonday sun.

7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.

9 For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
