Prayer for a Worthy Family

Heavenly Father, I pray today that you may count my family worthy of your calling.

Enable us to become increasingly holy, self-denying, loving, full of integrity, steeped in the knowledge of you and your Word, ever delighted and eager to trust and obey you. We are not strong enough or disciplined enough to live up to your calling on our own. But I ask that you will so work in our lives that we may grow in all things that please you so that you ultimately judge us to be living up to the calling that we have received.

Help us to establish and pursue only those plans, goals, and purposes that are in keeping with your will and intent for our lives and by your power cause every good purpose and faith-prompted act of ours to bear abundant fruit.

Father, thank you that you are transforming us into your likeness with ever increasing glory by your marvelous grace. It is only by your grace that we can become fruitful. It is only by your grace that we can persevere. It is only by your grace that we can mature. It is your grace that enables us to love others more. It is your grace that enables us to cherish holiness and a deepening knowledge of God.

Therefore I ask all these things on the basis of your grace, Amen.
