5. Prayer for Trust
“A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity.” (Proverbs 17:17)
People always inevitably disappoint. The same is true for myself and my family. Though this may be true God, I want us all to be able to trust each other. I pray that you help us to keep past failures in perspective with past moments of successes. I pray that we stop allowing past sins and bad decisions keep us from trusting in our family like we should in the present.
We are to love each other at all times. Therefore, we should trust at all times. I pray that you show us what trust should look like within our family unit. I pray we learn to exercise trust, not just during the moments of serenity, but also in moments of adversity.
Trust is meant to take us through every season, so I pray that we learn to trust always.
What the Bible Says about Family
“If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” (Romans 12:18)
God supports the idea of peace within the family. Since everyone is sinful, their actions will always cause hurt, disappointment, and frustration at some point in life.
God’s word presents us with holy ways to respond to these negative emotions. Scripture makes clear that peace is possible. How much peace we achieve will depend on how hard we are willing to work for it.
We can rest assured that if God desires peace for us and our families he is willing to work for us and through us. The question then is how badly do we desire peace?
May these prayers comfort you and your family in your time of need.
