Prayer can sometimes be an intimidating thing for people. If you are like me you probably think you don't pray 'enough'...but according to who right?! I know for myself it's more of a conversation regularly with God but sometimes I like to pray the word over my kids and loved ones.
So today I want to do something a bit different and give you a couple of prayers I use from the word that you can pray for your children, your spouse, any loved one or even yourself. Copy and paste them, print them out, put them on your mirror or wherever you can see them to remind you to pray these simple yet powerful prayers over those you love!!
God of our Lord Jesus : I call out to You on behalf of ( insert name). Give them minds ready to receive wisdom and revelation so they will truly know You. Open the eyes of their hearts, and let the light of Your truth flood in. Shine Your light in the hope You are calling them to embrace. Reveal to them the glorious riches You are preparing as their inheritance. Let them see the full extent of Your power that is at work in those who believe and may it be done according to Your might and power.
Father out of Your honourable and glorious riches, strengthen ( insert name). Fill their souls with the power of Your Spirit so that through faith the Anointed One will reside in their hearts. May love be the rich soil where their lives take root. May it be the bedrock where their lives are founded. So that together with all your people they will have the power to understand that the love of Jesus is infinitely long, wide, high, and deep, surpassing everything and anyone previously experienced. God may your fullness flood through their entire beings.
No matter what don't take on the guilt of 'not praying enough.' Trust that he hears even the simplest of prayers, a groan, a sigh, His name...whatever and however you pray He hears you and loves you today!!
Love you friends!!
