Praying for Our Siblings

Oct 12, 2021

Reflect

Siblings are our first—and often our finest—friends. And while it’s not always a symbiotic relationship, our sisters and brothers bring a sense of humor and history to our days, regardless of our age.


Pray

Dear God,
My siblings and I share more than DNA.
We share a history of peaks and valleys,
tears and laughter, fights and folly.
I’m only glad I haven’t had
to make this journey on my own.
Thank you for brothers and sisters everywhere
who share a bond more precious than gold.
They are gifts for which I can never repay.
Amen.


Act

Share this prayer with your siblings. If you are an only child, share it with friends who feel like family. They make the world a little less cold.

I have a strained relationship with one of my siblings. I pray that this will ease over time. He stole stole our inheritance.

As we continue to grow in Jesus, His healing power will bring us all together in His love. God bless us all.

I received this prayer on my brother's birthday, and will use it in my meditation.
