1PETER 4 PRAYER FOR YOUR FAMILY
Jesus release intense unfailing Love toward us I pray the (your family’s name) Home would be good trustees of God’s many-sided grace. Whatever service we render let it be with the strength which God furnishes in abundance! Let our home in all things glorify God as live out our days for God’s will alone. Let the heart of rejoicing be in all our trials revealing your glory and radiance. Let the triumphant leading of Christ be evident in all circumstances as a testimony to our children and our children’s children. Release life-joy, satisfaction, bestow your favor and the sweet salvation of Christ resulting in the Spirit of glory manifested and resting upon our hearts and home. Empower us to do right, live righteously, committing daily our souls to the Creator God. May we fully trust and know by experience the faith that our Creator has given our family. Let each heart and mouth confess Jesus is Lord. Like a crest engraved upon our family shield write upon us the love of God. May this shield of Your love never fail to protect, and bring victory in any and all circumstances. Amen
More fuel for your prayers-
Everything in the world is about to be wrapped up, so take nothing for granted. Stay wide-awake in prayer. Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless—cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God’s words; if help, let it be God’s hearty help. That way, God’s bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he’ll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything—encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!
Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. (1 Peter 4:7-13 MSG)
