Surpassing All Understanding

Lord, I thank You for Your peace that is not like the world’s peace but that causes a stillness of the spirit inside us and opens up doors to be fulfilled in love, joy, and forgiveness. Lord I pray that it would be the desire of my childrens’ hearts to pursue your peace in all of their relationships in their day to day lives. Give us peace as we pursue this, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

“So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.” 1 Thessalonians 5:15

Inside Out

Lord, I pray for Your esteem on my children’s lives and that You would embolden them to be confident in who they are in You. I declare a deep rooted revelation that they are Yours and that nothing can separate them from You or who You have created them to be. Cultivate in them a heart that matches Your faithfulness, love, and Your righteous virtues. Give them courage and strength. Purify their hearts and minds and give them wisdom. Help me to show them Your kindness, gentleness, and Your sacrificial and joyful generosity so that they may become kind, gentle, and giving like You. I declare over them that their treasures would be that of what’s laid up in Heaven and not here on Earth. Amen! Thank you for this family that You’ve been such a huge part of. Keep blessing us, Lord. In Jesus’ name! Amen!
