Prayers for Family Reunion

What Should I Pray for my Family Reunion?

Family is God’s own idea which He set up in Genesis. God had set it up for procreation and expansion. God wants men to multiply and fill the earth. But beyond this filling of the earth, God also uses family for an individual for support and growth. A Christian family is centered around standing for each other and emphasizing growth as each fulfills their divine mandate. It is Christ’s intention to use family to raise people that will conquer the world for Him. For this to happen, the family must be together in one accord.

For a family, there are many prayer points. However, this piece seems to focus on prayer for a family reunion. Before we begin to raise prayer points for a family reunion, we need to understand that something must have happened. The family must have had issues that probably put it in asunder. When there is disunity in a family, it opens the door for the manipulation of the devil. Such a family can not be used by God to conquer the world or produce people that will win the world for Him. That is the devil’s target!


There is so much that can be achieved when the family is in one accord. The popular saying, “United we stand, divided we fall” shows that there is strength in togetherness. This means that the unity in the family determines the strength of the family. The scripture says it is good for brethren to dwell together and that it helps the flow of anointing among members of the family. This is another advantage of the family member’s unity. That shows that if the family would enjoy the flow of grace among members, they must be united.


Now, let’s raise the prayer points for the family reunion. Reunion means that the family was once united. If the family is no longer united, it means there is disunity and something must have brought about that. So to pray for a family reunion, we will need to start with finding out what really caused disunity in the family. With this understanding, you can raise an effective prayer point that will address the situation. If the prayer addresses the cause, then we can be sure that the family reunion will be a possibility.


But you do need to first seek forgiveness from God. This is because it is the primary responsibility of every member to make sure that the family stays together. Every member is expected to facilitate family unity in deed and in prayers. So, the family’s unity was shattered and we now require a reunion means that members slept along the line. When men slept, the enemies came and caused this issue. Therefore, repent for failing in this divine assignment before you raise the prayer points.
