Heavenly Father, You are three and yet one, and it is a mystery. But Father, this one thing we know, that out of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You created us to be loved by You and to share in Your divine relationship.
We were created to fellowship with you and others, just as it is your nature that Three can become one.
Even so, Lord, you have blessed us in the realms of the earth to have those human connections with one another, for us to experience being husbands and wives, parents and children, co-laborers and friends.
These relationships are a blessing to us, and we thank You that we can connect with people in these various ways, and express our friendship and love through these relationships.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go. And when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Better Relationships between Parents and Children
Father, we thank you for the relationships of parents and children, that we can experience the care-free living of being totally dependent on our parents, to grow up and then know what it is to be on the other side, as you Father, have cared for us as a loving parent.
Oh what a wonderful window into the Heart of God has been revealed in the relationship between parents and children.
For the children, we pray that their hearts will be full to receive the love, instruction of their parents, in an environment of trust and free from fear.
For the parents, we release wisdom and discernment in the way they should raise their children.
We bless the relationships of parents and children. May great joy and peace continue to abound in the hearts of all that make up this family.

Better Relationships between Husband and Wife
Oh Heavenly Father, we thank you for the union of husbands and wives. Lord, you say this is a great mystery, that two shall become one, and be joined together by you.
Father, we bless those who have entered into marriage. We speak abundant peace, love, and joy over their union, may they grow ever deeper in intimacy with each other.
We speak divine protection over them, from those who would seek to do them harm or bring division. Guide their steps along the way, as they grow and mature in the knowledge of each other and in your Grace, O God.

Better Relationships between Friends and Loved Ones
Thank you, O God, for the company of our friends and loved ones. How blessed it is that we can find communities of like-mind and like-Spirit to share and express ourselves, and share this life with.
Thank you, Father, for those who listen in times of need, and for them that offer counsel when trouble comes.
Thank you, Father, for every soft word spoken at the right time, every embrace that has held us together, and every shoulder we have cried upon when in time of need.
Father, we thank you for the people who have been a blessing to our lives. We give thanks for those who we have had the privilege to be a blessing in their lives.
Thank you, Lord, that you would share the fellowship you experience in the Godhead, through these little glimpses of expression we have in our relationships here on earth. Amen.
