Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

Isaiah 61:1-3: “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that He may be glorified.”

Prayer: Almighty God, this passage tells us why You sent Jesus. As a follower of Christ, I want to be more like Him, I want to follow Him and join Him as He preaches good news to the poor, heals the brokenhearted, proclaims liberty to the captives, comforts those who mourn, gives them beauty for ashes, joy for mourning and praise for a spirit of heaviness. Please help me to remember this is why You came. Please give me the discernment to know when a neighbor is in need of comfort and healing and good news. May I be a light in the darkness, Father! May our family shine You to all we encounter!

I'm just a messed up mama in need of God's fresh new mercies daily. My husband and I live in beautiful East Tennessee with our 3 children. God has taken me on a journey through the valley of depression and is teaching me to pray the Scriptures as a result. I hope and pray that you will be encouraged whenever you stop by this little place on the web.
