Prayer is one important thing you can always do for those you love and your cousin isn’t exceptional. Praying for my cousin is another way to show that I love and value them.
Whether you like it or not, cousins are also part of the Family. They are actually people who you can retrospect on time past – recalling good, bad, and beautiful memories you had or once had with them.
What you can’t do for them, God can pass through your prayers and do it for them. For example, situations that may want to destroy their lives can be thwarted through your prayers for them.
Prayers For My Cousin Brother and Sister
With a sincere heart, always engage these exceptional family members (cousins) in powerful prayers whenever you can perhaps during your quiet time, church prayers, or fellowship. I know you may be wondering what prayers you can actually make on their behalf. Below is a list of prayers you can make for your cousins.
Prayer of Thanksgiving for My Cousin
In everything, you have to give thanks to God. You can start with a prayer of thanksgiving to God appreciating Him for the lives of your cousins and all that may have happened in their lives. When you thank God for what He has done, he will do more. So do not fail to thank God for everything that has happened in the lives of these special people. You can pray as thus:

I thank you for the free gift of life you have given unto them. I thank you for your divine protection. You did not allow the plans of the enemy to prevail in their lives. You did not allow the plots of the evil ones to manifest in their lives. I thank you also for your provisions upon them. You have never allowed them to walk naked on the way. You did not allow them to beg for food. You have never allowed them to sleep on the highway or anywhere that will be harmful to them. You have always been taking care of them. I thank you for fighting both the seen and unseen battles the enemy waged against them. I thank you for closing the pit of death dug against them. I thank you for what you have done for them, what you are doing and what you will do for them. Faithful God may your name be praised forever in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer of Forgiveness for My Cousin
This is one prayer you can always pray for your cousins anytime, anywhere. The prayer of forgiveness of sins is essential because consciously or unconsciously, they might have erred against God so you pray to ask God to forgive them of their trespasses. Remember the bible made us understand that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. You can pray as thus:
Righteous Father, this hour I humbly come before you, pleading for your forgiveness upon the lives of my cousins. Lord, I plead that you forgive them of every sin. In any way they might have erred against you, Lord I pray that you have mercy upon them. Cleanse them of every evil and unrighteousness and make them presentable before you. Lord, may their sins never stand as a barrier between you and them. By your blood that was shed on the cross of Calvary, cleanse their heart and make them clean. May your mercy speak for them in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
Prayer for Devin Provision for My Cousin
Everyone has a need, including your cousins. They have things they might be in need of at different times of their lives. Praying for God’s provision upon their lives is one way that shows you have them at heart and you care about their condition. You can pray as thus:
Oh Lord our provider, the God who fed 5000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes, I pray today for your divine provision upon my cousins. Lord, I pray that you attend to their needs. Whatever will make them experience hard times in certain areas of their lives, Lord I pray for your intervention. Provide for them on daily basis. May they never be in need of what to eat and drink, what to wear, and where to sleep. Help them to always trust you for provisions in times of need. May they always look up to you as their source of help in every moment of their lives. May they never be overwhelmed by the economy of the country because I believe you are working things out for their good as the loving father that you are. Set before them a table in the presence of their enemies. May people look at them and call them blessed in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
Prayer of Healing for Cousin
You may have a cousin who is suffering from one illness or the other. Sending prayers of healing on their behalf can yield forth mighty results in their life. You can always pray to God to grant them quick recovery and eliminate every disease in their lives. You can pray as thus:
Oh Lord our God, the great physician is who you are. Lord, I bring forth my cousin before you. I pray that you stretch forth your healing hands upon them and roll away every disease from their lives. Their body is the temple of the living God so therefore, sickness has no right to dwell there. Let every sickness in their lives be destroyed in the name of Jesus and let your strength be released upon them. Oh Lord, make them whole again, quicken their mortal bodies and energize them. Grant them quick recovery and may they be empowered to carry out tasks they couldn’t carry out before now in Jesus’ name.
From the crown of their head to the sole of their feet, may they be strengthened in Jesus’ name. I declare them free from every sickness and may affliction never rise up for a second time in their lives in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
Prayer of Direction for My Cousin
When a man is not directed by God in life, he ends up living a wasted life. You may have a cousin in need of God’s direction in life, lift them up in your daily prayers asking that the Lord will direct their every step. You can pray as thus:
Faithful God, I pray for my cousins who desire to walk in your ways according to your leadings today, I pray that you direct their every footstep towards your perfect will and way. Though there are beautiful distractions the world might be offering them, Lord I pray that you help them not to fall for those distractions but rather walk in your perfect way. May they never walk according to their own leadings because it is not safe for them. Lord, walk with them in every area of their lives and direct them in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
Prayer of Protection for My Cousin
The world is evil and on daily basis, evil keeps increasing. People keep getting attacked from different angles of life. They encounter danger almost on daily basis. Praying for God’s protection upon the life of your cousins is one good thing you can do for them. When God protects a man, the evils and dangers of this world can’t get to him. You can pray as thus:
Faithful God, the one whose name is a strong tower where the righteous runs into and are saved, I lift up my cousins before you pleading that you protect them from every evil that may come their way. Every danger before them, and after them is cancelled. Lord use your mighty canopy of protection and cover them. Their going out and coming in is protected. Your presence will always go with them where ever they go. Guide and protect them today and always for in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
Prayer of Salvation for My Cousin
Someone who is not dwelling in Christ and is not living for Christ will only have a life that is filled with crisis and chaos. If you have a cousin who isn’t saved yet and haven’t accepted Jesus into his/her life, make it your number one priority to always pray for their salvation because it is only in Christ that one can be made whole. It is only in Christ you can experience peace and completeness. The peace the world offers can not last. Eagerly pray for the salvation of their souls. You can pray as thus:
Oh Lord our God, you are our righteous father. The God who has no atom of sin and dwells in the holy of holies. You are the God who gives the free gift of salvation unto all men. Lord, I pray that you arrest the hearts of my cousins. For as many of them who aren’t seeking first the kingdom of God, for as many who aren’t placing you as their number one and their major priority in life, Lord I pray that you who visited Paul on his way to Damascus will visit them in the name of Jesus. Everything that has occupied your place in their heart, Lord I declare that you roll it away in Jesus’ name. You are a good shepherd who left the 99 and went in search of that 1sheep. Oh Lord, cause them to seek first your kingdom and deliver them from the bondage of sin. Lord, open up their hearts to see you as the ultimate in Jesus’ name. I command the devil to lose charge and authority over their lives and heart in Jesus’ name. Be their Lord and personal saviour and receive all glory at last in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer for open doors and Favour
Another prayer you can pray for your cousin is the prayer of open doors and favour. When doors are closed against your loved ones, things tend to be more difficult for them. If the Lord does not show them mercy and shower His love upon them, they will continue to run around in circles with nothing to show for it. Pray fervently for God’s open doors and favour upon their lives. You can pray as thus:
Oh Lord my God, the wonder-working God. You are the lifter of men. you are the God of the 11th hour who can change the unchangeable and do the undoable. This hour oh Lord, I declare by the power in the name of Jesus, the name above every other name commanding every closed door against my cousins to be opened in the name of Jesus. Every door that has been shut against them and their families, if they refuse to open, I command them to be destroyed in Jesus’ name. I pray that your favour will be their portion every day of their lives in Jesus’ name. Every satanic power hindering their blessings from locating them is scattered by fire. They will find favour before God and men. People will favour them wherever they go in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.
Prayer of Restoration for My Cousin
At certain points in their lives, your cousins may have lost things. It may be their job, academics, business, family, health, home and so on. Praying for God’s restoration upon them is one good thing you can do for them. You may not be able to replace those things for them but through your prayers, God can restore their lost possessions. You can pray as thus:
Dear Lord our restorer. You are the Lord who is able to restore all that the caterpillar and cankerworm have eaten in a man’s life. Heavenly Father, I pray this hour for the restoration of every lost glory in the lives of my loved ones. In any area of their lives where they might have experienced any kind of loss, Lord I pray that you restore it in double folds in the name of Jesus. Is it their health, job, finance, education, family, or business that has been lost, father by your infinite mercy, let every lost possession be recovered in their lives in the name of Jesus. You are the Lord who is able to recover all, Lord, do it in their lives in the name of Jesus and may restoration be their testimonies in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Prayer For The Future
The destinies of your cousins are in the hands of the living God. Though the devil is out to battle and truncate it but he will never prevail. Pray for the future of your cousins asking that the Lord preserve their future and cause them to fulfil their purpose. You can pray as thus:
Heavenly Father, the giver of lives and owner of destinies, I pray to you this hour, committing my cousin’s future into your mighty hands. Destinies can be delayed but cannot be denied and by that, I declare that every power fighting against their future in order to ruin that perfect future the Lord has made for them, we command that it be destroyed in the name of Jesus. I declare that their future is bright and they will experience all that the Lord has in store for them. Their future shall never be one that is filled with tragedies and wrongs. They shall have a good experience of the future in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Prayer for Progress and Speed
There are levels your cousins are supposed to have attained in life by now or before now but due to unnecessary delays, they haven’t attained such heights yet. It is important you lift up your voice and pray that the Lord intervene in their conditions and arrest everything causing a delay in their lives. You can pray as thus:
Oh Lord my God, this hour I come against every spirit of delay operating in the lives of my cousins, I command that they be consumed by fire in the name of Jesus. Lord God, I pray that you grant them speed in life so they can attain the level that You want them to attain in life, be it academically, in sales, spiritually, financially, physically and otherwise, Lord I declare that they will get to it in Jesus’ name. I declare that they shall experience progress in all areas of their lives. What took others a lifetime to achieve will be achieved by them speedily and within a short period in Jesus’ name, Amen. You are the God who granted speed unto the men of old, father you can do it again, grant them quick speed in the name of Jesus. I cancel every form of unnecessary delay and prolongment in their lives in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
These are prayers you can pray for your cousins. There are many other prayers you can still make on their behalf but we will stop here. Pray for them with a sincere heart according to the leading of the holy spirit and you will see changes that will cause you to rejoice and testify in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
