Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

1 Thessalonians 3:11-13: “Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you. And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.”

Prayer: If there are loved ones that don’t know You, Father, direct our path to them. Lord, I lift up my family before you and ask that you make us increase and abound in love for one another and to all around us, just as our love for you grows, establish our hearts as blameless in holiness. We cannot wait for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

Philippians 2:5-11:

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

Who, being in very nature[a] God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

Prayer: Lord, let this mind be in me and in our home, let us have the mind of Christ, who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his advantage. God, give us the hearts and love to put each other first, to make ourselves nothing by taking the nature of a servant. Humble us that we may become obedient to die to self in our home. Lord, You exalted Jesus to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. To YOUR glory, God the Father. Make us like Jesus. More of You, less of me.

5 Ways Praying the Scriptures Has Changed Me

Prayer 5 Ways Praying the Scriptures is Changing Me

Nearly 8 years ago a period of darkness entered my life that left me hopeless. I did not have hope that things would get better. I did not have hope that I would ever be a better mom for my kids. I did not have hope that anything – be that medication OR Jesus – could help me.

You can read more of my depression story here, but suffice it to say, prayer was the last thing on my mind. Most days I couldn’t utter any words to God. It was as though my heart was mute. At first, I didn’t know what depression was or that I might be struggling with it, but even after I started realizing something was very wrong, I had a hard time even saying the word “depression” out loud.

I was having trouble getting out of bed, much less thinking about my relationship with God. As far as I was concerned, God had abandoned me.

Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

Philippians 1:3-6, 9: “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day unit now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ…And this I pray, that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense til the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.”

Prayer: God, may the prayers and cries of my heart be GRATITUDE every time I think of my family. Every time I remember the blessings You have placed in my life, I thank You. God, I ask you to help me, as a mom, to speak words of truth and hope to my children, that they would know You have started a good work in their lives and that they would trust You to complete it. On the days when I need that reminder myself, I ask you to bring to mind that truth. I ask you to make the love of my family toward each other and toward the world be abounding love, growing daily; that they would grow more and more in knowledge and discernment, that they would be drawn to what is excellent and be filled with the fruits of righteousness. All glory and praise to You alone!
