Pray for Family (Weathering the Seasons of Change)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

We all experience constant change, if it’s calm in our life it’s probably crazy in another family member’s. May we learn torest in the fact that the Lord has a purpose for it all.

There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens.

A time to give birth, and a time to die;

Let us rejoice in new life and pray for the souls of those at the end of life.

A time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant.

Plant the seeds of kindness and uproot bitterness and jealousy.

A time to kill, and a time to heal;

Kill your pridefulness and heal relationships harmed by your self-love.

 A time to tear down, and a time to build.

Tear down your personal wall of protection and take time to build up another.

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

Let your tears cleanse the sorrows of your heart, and laugh for joy and the generosity of our Lord.

A time to mourn, and a time to dance.

Mourn for the years lost without knowing the Lord; dance for joy once you have found Him!

A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them;

Take the stones from your heart and use them to build a foundation of Love.

A time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces.

Embrace those longing to be comforted, avoid embraces leading to lustful desires.

A time to seek, and a time to lose;

Seek the Lord with all your heart and all your strength; lose the arrogance of self-dependency.

A time to keep, and a time to cast away.   Ecclesiastes  3 1-6

Do not store up treasures here on earth but rather give them to those in need.

Pray for family that each person weather the seasons of one’s life with a greater understanding of Christ’s love for them.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet
