When you pour your life out in prayer, it makes our service to our families more effective than any other effort we can give.
We can spend hours of time cleaning our home and quality time with our children, but a poured out life of prayer will produce eternal results like nothing else.
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 John 5:14
This is where I have failed the most.
No matter what season of life you are in, you can start to pour your life out in prayer today. God loves it when we keep growing closer to Him and He gives grace and mercy where we have failed in the past.
I want to challenge myself and you to give yourself to pray frequently so that your family is covered.
Your prayers will protect your family from the deadly fire of Satan’s forces. Truly here lies the success of your family. In Christ, not in your efforts.
I love reading “Behind The Ranges” which is about a missionary to China many years ago. Because of the ministry of J. O. Fraser to the Lisu people, there were over 60 thousand Lisu Christians in Burma. These statistics just simply glow with triumph after the hard times of his earlier ministry and speak of God’s faithfulness through the years in moving men through prayer.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Let’s move our family through prayer this week with at least 5 minutes of prayer for them before starting your day.
- Leave a reminder on a sticky note to pray for your family in your Bible or on your mirror.
- List each member of your family on that note.
- Take your prayer up a notch and give yourself to frequent prayer,.
If you have “littles” pray over their day and future.
If your children have grown pray, for them fervently that they would make the right choices, that they would be on fire for Jesus.
If you have children who are not walking with the Lord, faithfully pour your life out in prayer as you go through your day that these children would see their need for the Lord.
Are you struggling with your children in some way? Do you have a prodigal child that is breaking your heart? Leave me a comment and share your concern and I will pray for you!
