Matrimony and family are God’s design, and as divine institutions there are no substitutes. Fundamentally, our global cultures and societies need a moral counter-revolution.Families have never been as fragmented as they are today, and our modern culture continues to wear away at the core unit of society. People are treated as commodities through media eg parents are encouraged to show their love for their children by buying gifts for them; the image of ‘father’ is denigrated and their role reduced to financial provider; the role of ‘mothers’ is demeaned.Satan knows that if he can destroy marriages, and thus the family, he can destroy the very fabric of any society.

  • Declare that marriage will remain the foundation of the family unit.Pray against the covenant-breaking spirit which manifests as divorce and open marriage.
  • Pray against abortion, transgenderism and euthanasia and declare that the Family Mountain will stand for life. Gen 1:27
  • Renounce family curses from previous generations and release blessings upon the next generation.
  • Pray for families in general, and particularly the healing of broken relationships in marriages and families, especially among believers and those in Christian ministry. Pray for strong communication, reconciliation, and restoration in families to help them heal from any un-forgiveness, shame and blame.
  • Pray for marriages of those close to you and for those of Christian leaders including politicians. “Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” Ephesians 5:33 (KJV)
  • Pray for parents to be bold to instruct their children to live according to God’s ways and step up as the authority in the home and model godly behavior. Pray that children would be obedient to their parents. Deuteronomy 6:6
  • The elderly often face difficult challenges without complaint,and many have no one to help them in times of need. Each one is made in the image of God and comes from a family. They are of value. Pray that the younger generation will respect the unique gifts and wisdom of the elderly and love them. Proverbs 16:31
  • Pray by name for disabled people you may know at church or in your neighborhood. Also pray for family members and caregivers who help loved ones with special needs.
  • An increasing number of families are seeking help from local homeless shelters because they have no place to live. Many homeless, who often suffer from mental illness or addictions, sleep in parks etc. Pray for the well-being of the homeless and especially that the Church will rise up to help meet this growing need.
  • Pray for families to exercise good judgment and display proper balancing of finances.
  • Pray that all government legislation reflects the value and importance of the natural family unit as the bedrock of a strong society as officials also deal with families that do not fall into that category.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”—
I Corinthians 13: 4-8
He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?
Matthew 19: 4-5
