Prayer of Blessing for Families

Families of New Zealand, I bless you in the name of Jesus to hear the whisper of God calling you by name saying: “Return to Me, and I will return to you.”¹

I plead the protective covering of the Living Blood of Jesus over the doorposts of every home.

I bless every family with the knowledge of God’s loving invitation to walk daily in His forgiveness and grace.²

I speak the Father’s wisdom, love, and grace, into every parent as they shepherd the hearts of their children with care and patience.³

Father, in your mercy, turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents…⁴

I bless every marriage with love, unity, and faithfulness.⁵

I bless all the children of New Zealand (or city, community, street) to obey and honour their parents.⁶ May every child grow in goodness, knowledge, and self-control.⁷

May every adopted and fostered child have a deep awareness that they are loved, accepted and created for a purpose.⁸

May the grandparents of New Zealand be blessed with strength and energy when caring for grandchildren.⁹ May they tell the next generation about the Lord’s power and His great deeds and the wonderful things He has done….¹⁰

I bless them with humility to come alongside their whanau and encourage the growing generations with wisdom and grace.¹¹

I bless every family where there is stress, anxiety and fear to know that God’s Spirit equips them with power, love and a sound mind.¹²

May the peace of God fill every home of New Zealand (or city, community, street).¹³

I bless every family to hear the gospel of Jesus in Spirit and truth and have an opportunity to respond in repentance.¹⁴ May all those families who know and follow you, grow as faithful disciples ¹⁵ and be salt and light in their communities.¹⁶

I bless all the families of New Zealand with abundant provision of all their needs, physical, spiritual and emotional from the miracle worker, Jesus.¹⁷
