The Godly Christian Family

Pray for the Strong, Godly, Christian Families to shine as light in this world. (Colossians 3.12-25; 1 Peter 3.1-12)

  1. Pray for Christian fathers, that they would take up the Spiritual leadership of their homes as they who must give account to the Lord, setting the tone of godliness in their homes by spiritual direction, attendance and membership in a sound Church, consistent family worship, personal works of piety, and that their wives would encourage and support them in these efforts, to the glory of Christ. (Ephesians 5.21-23)
  2. Pray for Christian mothers, that they would take up their Biblical role in the home with joy, supporting and submitting to their own husbands, that they too would provide good direction, support the family’s membership and fellowship at Church, be diligent in family worship, guiding the home and providing that unique perspective they bring to their family’s life and godliness. (Psalm 113.9; 1 Timothy 5.1-16)
  3. Pray for Christian children, for joyful and cheerful submission to their parents, obedience in all things, early conversion to Christ, diligence in Spiritual exercise both secret, private, and public. Pray for Christian parents that they would give godly attention and instruction to their children, guiding their manners and education in a godly way. (Proverbs 22.6)
  4. Pray for the breadwinners of Christian families, for diligence in labor as unto the Lord, a godly example to their coworkers, for frugality, living within their means with contentedness, avoiding the bondage of debt and covetousness, and adorning their public profession of faith with service and generosity. (Deuteronomy 15.12-15) 
  5. Pray for the education of covenant children, that it would thoroughly Christian, true, and according to the Scripture maxim that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of understanding, wisdom and knowledge. (Psalm 111.10)
  6. Pray for the palpable difference between Christian families and those of the world, that as Christian families we may shine as lights in this world, distinguishing ourselves by obedience in our worship, labor, leisure, and service to others. Pray also that this difference would present opportunity for Christian testimony. (Deuteronomy 4.1-10; Philippians 2.14-16)
  7. Pray that the Church would provide Biblical instruction to her families, that they may know how to live before the Lord according to His Word, and not according to the vain teachings of the world. (Ephesians 2.1-10; Colossians 2.4-12)
