Loving Lord,

I pray for _______.

Show her the opportunities you are putting before her.

Almighty God,

I lift up my loved ones to you today.

I pray for your blessings over them.

I pray that the world’s ways will not triumph in their lives this day, this week, this month, and this year.

They were created to be POWERFUL – in YOU.

They were created to be VICTORIOUS – in YOU

They were created to walk in the Power, Purpose, and Peace of Jesus Christ.

That is your will – and I ask for your will to be done.

In Jesus’ name I pray,

A Prayer to Pray

during a

Family Crisis

Almighty God,

You see this family crisis.

You understand everything about it.

I am coming to you seeking your help.

Give us new ways of looking at this situation.

Give us solutions we haven't thought of.

Give us insights into the changes that need to take place.

Show us how to get from where we are to where we need to be.

Help us to see this crisis from the view of a family working together  -  not from the view of opposing people fighting each other.

Lord, you are an amazing God, and we need your amazing help.

I will draw closer to you, Lord, during this crisis.

I will not let this situation keep me from staying close to you.

Give me wisdom and discernment.

Help me to make right choices.

In Jesus' name I pray,
