Father, thank you for my family. I know that you placed them around me and me around them so that we would protect and love each other, and so we could be a picture of what it is like to be in your family to the world. I ask that you would give me the ability to always be humble and kind when I am with them (Ephesians 4:2) I place my family in your hands and I know that nothing can take them from you (John 10:29). Thank you again, Father, for the joy they provide in my life and I declare that every evil thing that would come against them is right now instantly powerless and must leave. I declare as a member of their family that they are covered by the protection of the Lord.
In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray and declare these things.
