Take the 21 Day Prayer Challenge and your life will never be the same.We all have needs in our lives, we come to God praying and seeking. Today I challenge you to take the 21 day Prayer Challenge! Pray for your family, marriage, children, health, career, etc. and watch what the Lord will do in your life.
First start praying for “Yourself” Pray that God will change anything in you that is not godly.
Second Pray for Your Family, those under your roof first. (We must first minister to those whom are under our roof before we can began to minister to others) Pray for each individual in the family daily( you know their needs and what they face)
When you pray for your “family” be very specific with the prayers, pray for salvation for those who are not saved in your home. Pray that their hearts would be softened to listen to the word of God. Pray that they seek the Lord for guidance in their everyday routines.
Pray for the children in your home, pray for their education, pray that what they have learned in school that they will retain all the information. Pray for direction for your children, pray that they make healthy relationships at school, pray that they don’t fall to the evil ways of the world, pray for protection when they leave the house. Pray that your children will be a blessing to their teachers and students in the class.
Pray for your relationship with those under your roof. Pray that your relationship with each person draws you all closer to one another. Pray that you all become more patient with one another, pray that you all will be more loving towards each other, pray that you all will be more forgiven and understanding towards each other. Pray that you will go to church together and pray together as a family.
Pray for your Spouse, pray that their relationship with Christ deepens that their walk with the Lord increases, if your spouse is not saved keep praying for salvation for your spouse. And as you are praying begin to thank God and believe it.
Pray for strength in your marriage towards each other as well as a couple. Ask the Lord to show you both how to love your spouse, the way God loves them. Pray that your marriage will always honor the Lord. Pray that God enrich your love-making and intimacy. Pray that you will raise your children in the knowledge of the Lord, pray for godly discipline when it comes to the children. Husbands pray for your wife that she will be the woman God created her to be, wives pray for your husband that he will be the man who God has created him to be.
As a couple pray over your finances that you will be good stewards of what God has entrusted you both with. Pray for your job careers ask the Lord to help you to make godly decisions when at work, pray that your integrity will remain faithful to God.
When you and I begin to take charge of what God has already given us we stand under the blessings of GOD! In today’s world we see and hear of many things that are happening to so many families. Marriages being torn apart children acting out of anger all because they don’t know how to deal with life’s issues or things happening in the home. Finances are not looking good many couples had divorce over just the finances because they just can’t seem to get a grip on it.
We have a mandate from God when it comes to “The Family” God in His word has spoken to us on His Will for the family. We honor the Lord when we bring the entire family under God’s Will.
You might be thinking why should I do it for 21 days what does the 21 days have to do with it, I already pray for my family? All of these are valid questions the 21 days have no significance what so ever. In life if we do anything for a period of time it become habit-forming and that is what I am trying to show you. Make it a habit to pray, but pray specifically for things in you’re praying.
The effectual prayer of the righteous” James 5:16… Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
Pray for your family daily be specific and watch what the Lord will do in your family, your life will never be the same again.
