Pray for Families (Finding Love)


Greetings Prayer Warriors.

What I love about families is that they guide us in our ways (and sometimes put us in our place), usually always (sometimes painfully) tell us the truth, and they enrich our lives by their caring, support, and love.

But sometimes we become misguided, lose our way, and question the truth.  We crave true love, but often look for a more worldly love.  We mute out family voices.

“I am the way and the truth and the life.” John 16:4

When we lose our footing, feel unlovable, and desire the truth, there is only one sure way to turn. Seek the Lord in prayer, and He will show you the way.  Open yourself to Him and He will tell you the truth.  Surrender to His will, and your life will be forever changed.

In prayer we ask:

Make known to me your ways, LORD; teach me your paths! Psalm 25:4

Conversely, perhaps you are the unwilling witness of a family member or friend who thinks they are on a great path, living the good life, and loving their very own self-defined (self-destructive) truth.  

For family we simply pray:

Make known to them your ways, Lord, show them your paths!!

Some say, “love is the answer.  I say prayer is the answer, in that through prayer, all will come to know Love.   And when you share this Love, more will come to pray.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Encourage others to pray. Simply pass it on!
