But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Galatians 5: 22-23
I praise You for the wonderful truth that You are ALWAYS stronger than our flesh. Please pour Your power into the hearts and minds of my children so that they can walk by Your Spirit, which is both freeing and beautiful. In their own circle of influence, I pray that each of them would exhibit YOUR love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, "You are my servant," I have chosen you not rejected you. so, do not fear, for I am with you; for I am your God. I will strengthen and help you: I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41: 9-10
Dear Ruler of the World,
Help my children recognize their VALUE in Christ - that You have CHOSEN them, and have an ASSIGNMENT for them while on this earth. Bind fear from their hearts, make them strong in YOU. Cause them to press forward, knowing that You are holding their hand.
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives; and freedom to the prisoners.
Dear God in Heaven,
I thank You and praise You that Your Spirit lives in each one of my children. I ask You to rise up in them, O Lord - open their eyes to the afflicted, the brokenhearted, the lost. Make them know and understand that their PURPOSE in life is to take Your saving LOVE to the world.
The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
Dear Lord of Might,
I pray that my children would KNOW that You are always in their midst as a VICTORIOUS WARRIOR! Help them to believe that You are pleased with them - cheering for them, encouraging them, soothing them - cause them to receive YOU, I pray.
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6: 8
Dear Righteous One,
I pray that my children would desire to walk in the manner You have asked them to, while on this earth. Through Your Spirit, O Lord, cause them to pursue justice, to love kindness, and stay humbly close to You, O God.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3: 5-6
O Light of the World,
Cause my children to stay close to You - even when they do not understand where You are leading them. Please give them obedient faith to follow You. Cause their heart to say, "I trust You," each and every step.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. James 4:7-8
Thank you for your instructional word! Please Lord, through your powerful Spirit, help us to submit to your authority, as well as resist the temptations or arrows of our enemy. As we do these things, thank you for the promises that the devil will flee and you will draw near. Amen.
