11 Uplifting Prayers for Family Conflict

When you are in a state of conflict, your emotional and spiritual state falls. These uplifting prayers for family conflict will remind you that these problems are only temporal and that the Lord is eternal.

Prayer #1

God, You are there in the pain we cannot bear, do not understand, and want to run from. Hold us and help us. Help us to endure long silences until we are sure You have inspired our choice of words. Quicken our hearts to forgive, and to pray for those on the other side of disagreements. Bless those who hurt us, and help us to be a blessing that shines bright in Your Name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Prayer #2

I pray for your Divine Intervention to resolve all our problems in the family that we’re facing recently. We have a lot of experiences in the past which have resulted to deep heartaches, feelings of frustration and grudges. Please heal and strengthen each member of my family so that we will have the courage to forgive and move on with our lives as one united family.

Lord, I ask to Thee for forgiveness for our failure to make ourselves open to one another, for letting our pride prevail within us and for being pessimistic. I pray that each of us will be bless with more patience, apprehension, good communication and predominant love.

May all the families in the world especially experiencing broken family relationships, depression, addiction, agitation and other relationship problems be resolved and entirely healed by our Almighty God.

I ask and pray to Thee through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer #3

You know, God, we are not a perfect family.
The stresses of our lives cause us to bring each other hurt and pain.
This is not the way we choose to live with each other.
Yet, all too often, it is how we are living.
We ask that you guide us in your Providence back to a better and more loving way.
Please help us to bury anger and return to the seed of our love.
Please help us to value each other as you value us.

Prayer #4

Lord, I pray now for my marriage. Thank you God for my spouse. Thank you for your love for him/her, and for our marriage. Thank you that you are a champion of marriage and you want to see our marriage last. Lord, forgive me – so often I put myself first, and push you and my spouse to the backburner. Help me prioritize our marriage. Help me fight for it when it’s hard, and to enjoy it when it’s going well. Help me encourage and support my spouse in all she/he has going on. Help me Lord! I know that without your guidance and support I would stumble and fall. Help us put you first, and strengthen our resolve to work through the hardest parts of marriage. In your name I pray, Amen.

Prayer #5

Anger, hatred and bitterness is not of You. You are the God of grace, God of peace, God of mercy but most importantly, You are the God of love. Restore Your peace within me.

Teach me to forgive and resolve any conflicts which may arise, immediately and peacefully. Help those around me to resolve their conflict situations as well and may we all execute Your never-failing, eternal love to one another. In Jesus mighty name, Amen!

Prayer #6

We pray for all whose lives
have been touched by tragedy,
whether by accident
or a deliberate act.
For those who mourn,
immerse them in your love
and lead them through this darkness
into your arms, and light.
For those who comfort,
be in both the words they use
and all that’s left unspoken;
fill each heart with love.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
whose own suffering brought us life,
here and for eternity. Amen

Prayer #7

Heavenly Father, who we love, I lift Your name over all the earth. Father, lately I have found myself in a place that I do not want to be in. Anger, hatred and bitterness is causing me to lash out at the people around me and especially at my dear loved ones.

I am on edge at every point, the slightest gesture upsets me. I cannot continue on like this, Oh Father, please hear my cry.

Prayer #8

O Holy Spirit of God,
we beg You to descend upon us and resolve in us the complexities of our spiritual lives and combats, which are incomprehensible to us. Grant that we may accept all that You bring to us in our suffering. We ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer #9

God of wisdom and grace, prepare us to pray with compassion, hope and love, as relationships are severed between individuals and peoples; as grief, loss, anger and despair are experienced daily and deeply; as the experience of normality is shattered and uncertainty and fear become constant companions to those affected by the conflict.

God of all knowledge, we come before you, each with our own understanding of the conflict, each acknowledging the limits of our understanding. We recognise that what we know may be vastly outweighed by what we do not know or understand of what has caused and what perpetuates this conflict. Help us to pray within the limits of our own knowledge and within your limitless capacity to bring about reconciliation.

Grant us wisdom, dear Lord, that our prayers may be clothed in compassion. Amen.

Prayer #10

I am losing the people that I love as these arguments arise. Help me to be at peace with everyone at home, at school and even on my job.

Grant me the patience to hold my tongue, give me tranquility in my soul but most of all give me strength to overcome this.

Prayer #11

Creator God, you are the author of our lives, and you do not need others’ eyes through which to see our stories unfold. We rejoice that your sight is clear and your understanding unsullied by the ways we misrepresent ourselves to one other. Your justice is rooted in full knowledge of the shadows within each human heart, and is the route to full forgiveness and deep communion with you.

God of compassion, you know that it is a human temptation to obscure the worst of ourselves when self-interest prompts us to. How much, then, are those who influence or control situations of violent conflict tempted to hide the truth of their actions from others – whether to protect themselves and their reputations, or to perpetuate a system that brings profit, resources or power? Lord we offer our prayers for those who hold the power in [this] conflict, and who tell the story the way they want it to be heard.

We bring to you the political leaders at the forefront of [the] conflict, in their temptation to re-write elements of the narrative for their own personal gain. God of peace, grant them knowledge of their own culpability and the strength to admit it, so that suffering and injustice do not remain hidden. Through Christ our Reconciler, Amen.
