Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

1 Corinthians 13:4-8: “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” 

Prayer: Lord, You love us with a love we cannot fathom in our humanness. Yet You also call us, as Your children, to love others in that same way. By Your grace help me to show Your patience and Your kindness to all of those I encounter, but especially in our home. God, cause us not to envy, convict us when our pride begins to show its ugly head, may our response to our own sin against one another be repentance and humility. Help me to seek after Your own heart and not my own desires, help me to fix my eyes on You and not the evil around me. May my rejoicing be in You and Your mighty works on this earth, not my own doing or anything that does not point to truth. Give me the grace and strength to show my family that I believe in them, that I hope good things for them and that my love for them will always endure. May I be Jesus to my family.

Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

Romans 8:31-39: 

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j]

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Prayer: God, You are for us, who can be against us? You did not spare Your own son, but gave Him for me. No one can condemn me because I am in Christ and Christ is in me. Thank You Lord for that truth. Help me to remember that truth and speak aloud that truth when I feel like the world is condemning me or even my own heart. Help me to fix my eyes on You so that I know without a doubt Your love…so that it takes over my life in such a way that others see You in every word and every action. Nothing, nothing at all…nothing I’ve done, nothing I will do, can separate me from Your love. God, we are desperate for that love. We are amazed at Your love for us. Trouble nor hardship nor persecution nor famine nor nakedness nor danger nor sword can separate me from You. There is no more powerful truth. And because nothing can separate us from You, we are more than conquerors. Thank You, Lord Jesus. You are worthy. You alone.

Praying the Scriptures For Your Family

Today’s Scripture To Pray For Your Family

John 15:1-11: 

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit,while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands,you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.

Prayer: Lord God,  teach us to abide in You. You are the true vine, we are the branches. You cut off every branch in me that does not bear fruit – and we thank You for that, God! Sometimes it hurts to be pruned, but we know it is for our good and for Your glory. Teach us to remain in You. Thank You that you are always faithful to remain in us. We cannot bear fruit by ourselves, we must remain in You! Apart from You we can do nothing!
