7:21 Prayer Initiative

Mondays

FAMILY

 

This sphere of society includes people who work as counselors, ministers, social workers, educators, and those in any aspect of culture that deals with family life.

 

  • Pray God will give mothers and fathers the language of those instructed by God so they may speak with wisdom into their children’s lives; know how to sustain their children with comforting words when they are weary; be able to teach their children how to be instructed by the Lord (Isaiah 50:4).

  • Pray God will cause them to multiply their Christian impact through their willingness to parent those who have not had godly parents (Isaiah 54:1–3).

  • Pray that husbands and wives will be submitted to each other in the fear of the Lord (Ephesians 5:21).

  • Pray fathers will be careful not to exasperate their children but lovingly, wisely, and patiently train them in the ways of the Lord (Colossians 3:20; Ephesians 6:4).

  • Pray children will desire to obey their parents because they know obedience brings joy to God and their patents (Colossians 3:20).

  • Other scriptures you may like to pray: (Isaiah 54:13–17). (Ephesians 5: 22-33, Colossians 3:18). (Isaiah 51:16, Romans 8:14–15).

 

ACTION STEP

Monday—Family: Contact a family member, whether near or far, and tell them you love them. Forgive any past wrongs and bless them by praying for them throughout the day. Or you may want to contact another family in your neighborhood and ask if you can pray for them. “Above all seek the mind of the Lord” (John 15:7) “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32)
