A Prayer for Divided and Broken Families

Mother Teresa left this beautiful prayer for us to ask for peace to reign at the heart of our families.

O God, Father of all people, You call us all to carry love where the poor are downtrodden, joy where the Church is discouraged, reconciliation where people are separated — father from son, mother from daughter, husband from wife, those who believe from those who don’t believe, the Christian from his unloved Christian brother.

You prepare our way so that the wounded Body of Christ, Your Church, may become the leaven for the community of the poor on earth and for the entire family of mankind. Amen.

Prayer for Broken Families Holy Card

God our healer, we lift up to You in prayer all families who are divided or broken by human failure. We ask that You draw forth the pains caused by divorce, infidelity, abandonment, and selfishness, as one draws out a poison, and begin the healing that is needed in the hearts of Your people. May the households of humanity be places of reconciliation, forgiveness, and peace. Lord, restore broken relationships, inspire forgiveness in the wronged, and heal the restlessness and inner pains of those who have divided their own families. Inspire those affected by familial brokenness to pray at all times for Your will to be done, both now and in the future.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, by whose own wounds we are healed. Amen.

I ask You Lord Jesus to heal my family from the brokenness that we are experiencing now. I ask you Lord to heal the gap that is drifting my husband away from our family.

God, good Lord, please heal my family. Bring us back together Lord, be in our midst and heal each one of us from the pain of being separated and away from each other. Bring back the love we once have. I ask You too Lord Jesus to heal my broken heart. Heal the seething pain in my heart brought about by my husband's negligence and disregard for me and my family. Lord God, I know I am not perfect, I have my mistakes and shortcomings. But You know dear God the sincerity of my heart.

Please good Lord, heal me from this pain. Help me to accept things as You will them to be.
