Pray for Families (Finding Your Place)

Greeting Prayer Warriors,

Have you ever noticed how innate it is to seek out "our place"? Our place in the family, our place at school, our place at work, our place in the world and so on. We have a need to be part of something greater than ourselves and to be a contributing member. I was reminded of this as my son and I recently spent time visiting the colleges into which he was accepted so he could determine the best place for him. Ultimately, the right place is where one feels like they can be themselves. In other words, a place where you can be the person God created you to be.

We are not only part of something greater; we are part of Someone greater. Our true place is in God's family, as His beloved child, created to know, love and serve Him. He has an individual plan for each one of us, and when we act in accordance with His will for us, we are filled with peace. Our journey doesn’t end with the Lord, but begins there and continues throughout our life. We are then continually sent to be His witnesses, either in word or action.

Let us pray for all family members who are seeking their place in the world. Lord, open the ears of your beloved children, so that all may hear the Shepherd’s voice calling them,

Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name: you are mine. Isaiah 43:1

May they feel blanketed in the security of Your love, may their hearts burn with a desire to serve you, and in You may they find their true place.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Build His family. Invite the relatives!
