31 Days of Prayer: Day 18


Good Morning Everyone :)

We're just TWO WEEKS away from 2015, can you believe it?! A new year filled with new possibilities awaits us. What is it that God wants you to do differently? What are you prepared to differently?

One way we're going to prepare for 2015 is to pray for our families. We not only want the newness a new year offers us but also for the ones we love. 

Sample prayer

"Father in the name of Jesus, I pray that You forgive me of my sins, sins of omission and sins of commission, sins done in thought, word and deed. And I thank You Lord for giving me a forgiving heart, that I may forgive those who trespass against me just as You oh God forgive me of my trespasses in Jesus name. Father God, I lift up my family unto You. First I pray for the salvation of my family members, that if any of them do not know You, that they will confess with their mouths and believe in their hearts that You are their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I pray also for my family's protection as I plead a Psalm 91 protection over each and every member in Jesus name. I pray that they would trust You, oh Lord and surrender their will and lives unto Thee. Thank You Lord for not allowing anything to separate Your love for them. I pray that they grow in You, walk in You and allow You to order their steps, in Jesus name Amen"
