Day 3 – Tuesday Jan. 16

God, we pray that the love, healing and generosity of your kingdom be manifested in our families.

 

Families

 

Children

  • Pray for children to be raised in love, wisdom and security
  • Pray for children to know they are loved by God and to love him in return
  • Pray that kids obey and respect parents and authority

 

Husbands and wives

  • Pray for husbands and wives to resolve their problems and make their marriages stronger
  • May husbands and wives seek unity and love, honour and respect each other
  • Pray that God will return the state of marriage to a place of honour in our country
  • Let hope and healing now come to those marriages that are strained and breaking (Hebrews 13:4)

 

Mothers and fathers including single parents

  • Let our earthly fathers look to our heavenly Father as the ultimate spiritual head of the family, and serve their families by carrying their responsibilities for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of their wives and children
  • May absentee fathers come to faith in God and radical life-change
  • Let godly character be clearly seen in the lives of all fathers (Ephesians 6:4)

 

Families on welfare and social assistance

  • Pray that there will be adequate program and resources available to lift families out of poverty so that they may be self-sufficient members of society
