Lets Pray For This Family…

O God Arise and be the Breadwinner for this family in Jesus name!

I pray for copious grace to grease the wheels of the daily grind. Help them find the happy rhythm of relentlessly, courageously showing up day after boring ordinary day to do what needs doing, even though obligations and responsibilities aren’t always perfectly aligned with aspirations.

Strong Saviour, give them renewed excitement to create opportunities for a growing generation. Give them a fresh vision of the future they’re shaping and the legacy they’re leaving. Make good their tenacity to stay in the trenches and fight self-pity and self-preservation, temptation and resentment.

Help them see themselves the way You see them: a fortress of integrity, protection and provision for those you’ve placed in their care.

God, lift the shroud of pressure and panic. Give them Your mantle of peace and perspective. Make them fearless and humble. Settle their souls with Spirit-level equilibrium.

With every rude awakening of morning alarms wrenching them into new days, assure them that You, Sovereign Lord, are their strength. You make them as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights.

In Jesus’ Name,
