Pray for Families (Precious Gems)


Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Each member in our families is like a precious gem that has distinct and wonderfully unique qualities.  Joined together as a unit, this family chain has unparalleled beauty. 

I’ve created a simple acronym to help you pray for the building up of family members, so that the clarity of their inner beauty will shine forth.  For example, using the acronym for your inspiration:

Lord, for (name), I pray that they grow in faith, learn to glorify you in their actions, seek you in prayer, put others first, be quick to forgive so that love may grow, and know how important they are to our family and Yours.

F.A.M.I.L.Y. PRAYER

Faith in God
            The seed from which all fruit in our lives will grow.
Actions as a gospel message
            We can bring hope into the world though our actions.
Make time to pray 
            Our prayers can change the world faster than anything else we 
            can do.
I am third*
            When everything doesn’t revolve around me, family unity can 
            blossom.
Love unconditionally 
             Others will then see Christ in you, when you are quick to forgive.
You are important to me, to your family, to others. 
            Affirm each family member, that they know they have dignity 
            and value.

We give thanks to God always for all of you, remembering you in our prayers, unceasingly. 1 Thessalonians 1:2 

May our collective prayers lift families to new heights!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

You are a precious gem in the eyes of God!  Pass it on!
