Colossians 1:9-12: “For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and long-suffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.”

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.

On the days when I need that reminder myself, I ask you to bring to mind that truth.

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

Ephesians 1:15-20: “Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places.”

Prayer: Lord, this prayer that Paul prayed for the church of Ephesus is the prayer I pray for my family and my children. Lord, I do not cease to give thanks for the blessing of family and who You have given me; all gifts. I pray that you will give my children the spirit of wisdom and revelation in knowing who You are, that the eyes of their understanding would be opened, that they would know what is the HOPE of their calling, that they would know the riches of our inheritance in You, and what is the exceeding greatness of Your  power toward us.

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

Galatians 5:22: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.” 

Prayer: Oh Lord, we just beg you to pour out your Spirit over our family and over our home. We ask You to help us show this fruit to the world so that they may see You. God, we desire our homes to be full of love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. You know, Father, that our flesh and humanness and sinfulness gets in the way every single day. But, by Your grace, today, we can show a little more love to each other. God we can’t do it without you. Help us! We are desperate for You!
