Family


The family is the foundation of our society. That makes it an extremely important issue to cover in prayer!  The institution of marriage is under attack. Families are stressed by financial issues.  Families are separated due to work and military duties. We need to pray for families!

Imagine every family led by a husband and father who consciously released the dreams of his wife and children. Imagine wives who made it their priority to encourage their husband to dream, and who spoke prophetically into it.

This section provides prayer points to cover for families in our state and across the nation.

 

A Father's Blessing

Posted in Family

YOUR "FATHER'S BLESSING"

Read and pray this as though your Father in Heaven were speaking it to you.

Pray it over your own children.


My child, I love you!  You are special.  You are a gift from God.  I thank God for allowing me to be a father to you.  I bless you with the healing of all wounds of rejection, neglect and abuse that you have suffered.  I bless you with overflowing peace, the peace that only the Prince of Peace can give, a peace beyond comprehension.  I bless your life with fruitfulness—good fruit, much fruit and fruit that remains. 

Prayers for the Children of Colorado

Dear Lord we come before you asking forgiveness for Christians in the past or now who have ever offended the people of this world.  God you know our hearts that we do NOT wish to JUDGE others no matter what their diversity represents.  As stated in the Jeffco mission statement of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion: that the office  embraces and honors diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, transgender, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, ability and disability.  Our Lord Jesus directed us to love our enemies and to love our neighbors as ourselves.  And so we do.  And we pray for their salvation.  It is not our place to judge any PERSON Lord God, we are not here to do that.   But rather we are here to preserve  the moral fabric of our culture in America, as we serve you our Lord.

A Prayer for Marriages

Posted in Family

Dear God, I praise you today for who you are. I come to you on behalf of all married couples.  You instituted the family.  You made a precious connection when you created Eve from Adam's rib.  They would be mates and help meet one another's needs, raise a family, and oversee your creation.  I pray for your protection of every married couple today.  Please work in their hearts and guide them to think of one another as they should.  May their priorities be straight, with you at the center and their marriage above other relationships.
