Can I pray for you?
Happy Fun Friday, precious SHINE friends.
Just a little note to let you know that you are prayed over today. From the top of your sweet head to the bottom of your weary feet.
There is a scripture in Ephesians that is dear to my heart that I would like to pray over you. I pray this over my husband, my children, my family....and now I pray it over you.
Sometimes we find ourselves without words to pray over certain situations in our lives and the lives of those around us. Scripture can help us find these words. The Word of God is flawless.
A little history behind this prayer...
Paul wrote this as he was sitting in a Roman prison. The recipients of this letter were the people of the Church of Ephesus.
It is amazing to me that Paul could find any encouraging words to share as he suffers through long, dark days in a prison cell. But, often our greatest ministry comes through our darkest valleys.
Be encouraged, friends. He sees you. He loves you. He is right beside you.
A prayer over you, dear precious one...
For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit[ of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
This is my prayer over you.
Maybe you are sitting with a sick child..
Waiting on test results...
On the brink of giving up on a wayward child, or wayward husband...
Unsure of what your future holds....
Over your head in financial woes....
Read this prayer again and again.
His power resides in you. In your situation.
I will keep on praying over you, friend. May you feel His Presence today in mighty ways.
all my heart,
*Please leave a comment or email [email@example.com] me if you have a specific prayer request. What an honor to lift you up to the Father.
