Prayer For Unsaved Loved Ones

Standard
Prayer For Unsaved Loved Ones

Acts 16:31 NKJV
“So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

 

Holy Spirit,
Hover over my unsaved loved ones. Give each one a revelation of Jesus by Your Spirit. Let the light of liberty shine into each one of them. Place the armor of God upon each one.

Birth repentance in each one – bring forth an unveiling. Let there be God-given revelation. Release Your light into them.

Cause every seed that has been sown into them to bring forth fruit producing revelation.

Give each of them a godly mindset. Shield each one of them from Satan’s thoughts and temptations. Put a hedge of protection around them.
Place godly people in their pathway each day.

Thank You, Lord, for Your mercy and Your grace. Thank You that the children of the righteous SHALL be saved.
In Jesus’ name, Amen

Family Hedge Of Protection

Family Hedge Of Protection

Dear Father,
I lift up my family to You and pray for a hedge of protection around each one of us. I thank-you for Your Word and Your promise of protection. You are a wall of fire around my family and You set Your angels all around us. My family dwells in the secret place of the Most High and abides under the shadow of the Almighty. I say of You, Lord, You are our refuge and fortress, in You we will trust. You cover us with Your feathers, and under Your wings we shall abide. My family shall not be afraid of the terror by night or the fiery dart that flies by day. Only with our eyes will we behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because my family have made You, Lord, our refuge and fortress, no evil shall befall us – no accident will overtake us – neither shall any plague or calamity come near us. For You give Your angels charge over my family, to keep us in all Your ways. Father, because You have set Your love upon my family therefore will You deliver us. My family shall call upon You, and You will answer us. You will be with my family in time of trouble, and will satisfy them with long life and show us Your salvation. Not a hair on our head shall perish.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray Out Loud

Standard
Pray Out Loud

God hears our silent, whispered, murmured and loud prayers, however there are many good reasons to pray out loud. A few are:

1. When we pray out loud it zeros in on our thoughts. At any given time we have many thoughts going through our mind so when we pray out loud it helps to single out what we are praying for.

2. Praying out loud together is the pattern set for us by the early church.

Acts 1:14 NKJV
“These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.”

Acts 2:42 NKJV
“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.”

Acts 12:12 NKJV
“So, when he had considered this, he came to the house of Mary, the mother of John whose surname was Mark, where many were gathered together praying.”

3. Praying out loud declares your faith.
According to Romans 10:9-10, confession is made with the mouth.

Romans 10:9-10 NKJV
“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

By praying out loud, you are declaring, or confessing, your faith.

4. Praying out loud is an encouragement.
When we pray out loud those that hear can be encouraged by our words.

When Jesus prayed for other people He prayed out loud so that those who heard Him could be strengthened in their faith and encouraged.

5. Praying out loud can help stir up faith and prayer in others.

Hebrews 10:24-25.NKJV
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works,
not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”

6. Praying out loud helps others to pray.
Jesus taught His disciples how to pray. By listening to Jesus pray they gained greater understanding on prayer and how to pray.

7. Praying out loud can speak things into existence.
Our words contain power and they have the ability to speak things into existence.

8. Praying our loud (in a group setting) is a way of sharing our struggles and weaknesses. It can also be comforting for others to pray out loud for us.

James 5:13-16 NKJV
“Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

9. Praying out loud helps build your faith. Your mind thinks it, your mouth says it, your ears hear it and your mind believes it.

Pray From God’s Perspective

Standard
Pray From God’s Perspective

We are called to bear one another’s burdens but we must remember that in many cases we can’t change anything, but we know the One who can. Seeking God’s will is important. In our own flesh we may try to fix things for others but, we only make them worse because God may be trying to speak to the other person through their problem.

The same can be true in our prayers. Sometimes what we assume we should pray for isn’t always what God wants us to pray. At times with our natural eye we might pray for one thing, such as deliverance when we should be praying for strength or endurance.

We need the Holy Spirit to guide us so that we can align our prayers up to God’s will. Praying according to the will of God includes asking for wisdom (to know the will of God) and asking in faith (to trust the will of God).

Matthew 6:10 NKJV
“…Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.”

Prayer is not about getting God to do what we want Him to … it is releasing God’s will on earth as it is in heaven.

Dear Father,
Thank-you for allowing us to be part of Your plan. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help us to bear one another’s burdens according to Your perfect will. We ask that Your will be done and not what we think -may all our prayers align up to Your will. Fill us with the wisdom to know Your will and with trust to accept Your will.
In Jesus’ name, Amen

Our Part, God’s Part

Standard
Our Part, God’s Part

God knows what we need before we ask, and He wants to meet our needs. However, He wants us to take an active part in His plans. Our part is to pray. We must leave the results up to God. When praying we must expect God to answer.
God will always answer, however it is not always answered in the way we desire. God says yes, not, and wait. No is an answer that we do not like to hear, however when God tells us no He has a reason for it.

Romans 8:28 NKJV
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

God desires for us to be concerned about others. It is important for us to pray for them, both the saved and the unsaved. Do not take it personally when you pray for someone and your prayer is not answered in the way you thought it would be. Remember when praying for others, our job is to pray and leave the results up to God.

Thank-you that all things work together for good to those who love You, to those who are the called according to Your purpose. Give us peace and strength to accept Your will and results.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
