Three Prayers I Dare You to Pray

 Prayer

By Lisa Cherry

I am in our heaviest season of travel right now speaking to hundreds of parents every  week. Never have I sensed such a vital need for prayer in our homes.

Deception
Confusion
Despair
Battle
Fear
Heresy
Lukewarmness......

...are knocking on our doors!

As I was praying this morning for all our Frontline Families, I was reminded of the powerful tool of prayer the Lord has given us to bring our kids through an evil generation. And right behind that reminder I also remembered the Lord gave us powerful prayers in His Book that we know are pre-aligned with the will of God! That is good news because we have an amazing promise in I John 5: 14-15 that says....

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know He hears us-whatever we ask- we know that we have what we asked of Him.

So I encourage you, instead of praying begging prayers today for your home, pray deeper to the root of your issues and needs. Pray as Paul prayed. He knew as we know that when the insides of our lives are lined up correctly the outsides will follow! These are daring prayers that could TURN OUR LIVES INSIDE OUT and UPSIDE DOWN!

Love you all! Will you join me praying............

Prayer 1

Philippians 1: 9-11

And this is my prayer for my family....
That our love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that we may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ -- to the glory and praise of God!

Prayer 2

Colossians 1: 9-12

I ask you, God, to fill us with the knowledge of your will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. I pray this in order that we may live a life worthy of The Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that we may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.

Prayer 3

Ephesians 1: 17-19

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give my family the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that we may know You better. I pray also that the eyes of our hearts may be enlightened in order that we may know the hope to which He has called us, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe!

Amen.
