August 8: A Prayer for Single Parents

Almighty Father, we thank You for the joy of parenthood. We thank You for fulfilling Your plans and purposes in our lives and for surrounding us with favor like a shield. We give thanks to You, Lord, and proclaim Your greatness. We will let the whole world know what You have done.  For Your love remains forever with those who fear You. Your salvation extends to the children’s children of those who are faithful to Your covenant, of those who obey Your commandments!

 

Father God, we declare that our single parents are joyful because they trust You with all of their hearts and do not depend on their own understanding of parenthood.  They seek Your will in all that they do and we know that You will continue to show them which path to take concerning their children. Heavenly Father, we confess Your Word of truth over all single parents, that they will discipline, teach and train their children with love and patience just as You, Lord, discipline, teach and train those You love.  We declare that the boys in our Church Family will flourish in their youth like well-nurtured plants and our daughters will be like graceful pillars, carved to beautify a palace.

 

Holy Spirit, please help those single parents who are struggling in their relationships with their children to remain joyful. Help them all to live before their children in a way that mirrors God’s Word so that their children will not see them as hypocrites and turn away from the love of Christ. Lord, help our single parents to not grow tired or weary, but to trust You to provide the strength and wisdom that they need. Help us all to see our children as a gift and reward from the Lord. Holy Spirit, increase our patience for our families, so that we live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Jesus Christ.

 

Holy Spirit, as a single parent, I ask You to help me with the following:  

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Loving Father, forgive our single parents for sin, including bitterness, resentment, fornication, envy, strife, unkindness, rebellion, deception, doubt, fear, economic mismanagement, poor parenting and oppression. Holy Spirit, remind all single parents to seek Your forgiveness when they respond in anger to the challenges they face with their children.  Forgive those who inflict harm or cause their children to turn away from the teaching of Your Word.  Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind all single parents of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive.  As for me, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help all single parents to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

 

Lord God, You have made the heavens Your throne; from there You rule over everything. We praise You with the angels, the mighty ones who carry out Your plans, listening for each of Your commands. Yes, we praise You, Lord, with the armies of angels who serve You and do Your will!  We praise You, Lord God, for everything You have created, everything in all Your Kingdom.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

June 19: A Prayer for Our Fathers

Triumphant Father, we thank You for the fathers in the Body of Christ.  Thank You for reminding them daily that they are created in Your image.  Thank You for crowning each of them with glory and honor.  Thank You for helping them to take their rightful place as the head of their homes.  We, Your servants, give praise to You, Lord.  Your Name will be blessed now and forever!  Everywhere from east to west, Your Name shall be praised.  Lord, You are high above the nations; Your glory is higher than the heavens.  No one can be compared with You!  Not to us, O Lord, but all glory will go to Your Name for Your unfailing love and Your faithfulness. 

Majestic Father, by faith, we declare that the fathers in the Body of Christ are saved, sanctified, and filled with Your Holy Spirit. They are priestly providers and protectors of their families.  We confess that our fathers will not copy the behavior and customs of this world; but they will allow You, Lord, to transform them into new men by changing the way they think.  We decree that our fathers are the head and not the tail; they are always on top and never at the bottom.  They are not victims of society; but they are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus.  Their children will honor them; for this is right in Your sight.  We confess that our fathers will not provoke their children to anger by the way they treat them; but they will raise them with the discipline and instruction that comes from You, our Heavenly Father.  Above all, we confess that our fathers have victorious futures because Your plans for them are of hope, filled with good and not evil.  We decree that the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are evident in their lives.  The light of Jesus is reflected in their actions.  We confess that our fathers are mighty men of valor. 

I will pray for the following fathers in the Body of Christ this month:

Holy Spirit, we ask You to fill our fathers with the knowledge of Your Word in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Please order their days so that their daily activities are balanced and fruitful.  Make the crooked places in their lives straight and perfect those things that concern them.  Help each father to not grieve Your Spirit. Teach them how to develop the individual spiritual gifts and talents of their children.  Restore the broken or struggling relationships between fathers and children. Increase Your love in those father/child(ren) relationships that are doing well.  Holy Spirit, comfort those who have experienced the death of their father and equip us as the Body of Christ to provide the support that they may need. 

Faithful Father, forgive our fathers for sins of disobedience, selfishness, and lying.  Forgive our wives and mothers for taking on the roles You have ordained for husbands and fathers. Forgive us as a society for focusing on the fathers who are not living up to their responsibilities while ignoring those who are taking care of their families. Father, forgive me for (list any sins that you have committed).  Holy Spirit, remind our fathers of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive.  As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”  Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

Holy Spirit, help our fathers to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Exalted Lord, we praise Your Name.  Your Name is great; Your glory towers over the earth and heaven.  You are worthy, Lord, to receive glory, honor and power.  You created all things; by your will they exist and were created.  You are Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

May 30: A Prayer for Wives Who are Desiring To Get Pregnant

Our Father, we thank You for the blessing of children and family. Thank You for each wife who stands in faithful expectancy of a child to hold in her arms. Thank You for Your creative power which is able to open closed wombs and cause them to thrive with new life. We will praise You, Lord, with all our hearts. We will tell of all the marvelous things You have done. We will be filled with joy because of You, and we will sing praises to Your Name, O Most High. May Your glorious Name be praised! May it be exalted above all blessing and praise!

 

Exalted Father, we believe that just as You were attentive to Hannah’s pleas for help, You hear the cries of every wife who longs to become a mother. We, the Body of Christ, declare that their prayers will not go unanswered, for You promised that You would withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. We confess that these wives will not grow weary and lose hope. In Jesus Name, we declare that bodies of each husband and wife in the Body of Christ are whole and complete, lacking nothing. We confess that they have victory over doubt, fear, and unbelief. We believe that You will connect them with those people who will love and support them as they trust You for children of their own. We decree that they will be parents who are full of wisdom and patience. They will train their children up in the way they should go, and when their children are old they will not depart from it. These expectant couples will do all they can to nurture their marriages so that the atmosphere of their home will be ready to receive children into a loving, peaceful environment.

 

List the names of any wives you know who desire to have a child and pray for them by name today:

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Holy Spirit, we ask that You would prompt the wives who are desiring to get pregnant to disconnect from any negative influences in their lives. Lead them to develop strong, healthy relationships with faith-filled believers who will stand in agreement with them and their husbands. Teach them how to take care of themselves physically, mentally and spiritually. Help them to rest and trust in the Father’s perfect timing. Keep them from becoming envious of others who have already conceived a child. Heal their hearts and deliver them from any guilt or shame they may be feeling. Help their husbands to show compassion and be patient and understanding toward them as they wait to conceive. Once they do conceive, strengthen them against the temptation to worship or overindulge their children. May they always be thankful and give glory to God, keeping Him first in their lives.

 

Loving Father, forgive the wives who desire to get pregnant of any known or unknown acts of disobedience. Forgive the wives and husbands for any past sins they may have committed. Forgive them for holding unforgiveness in their hearts toward others. Forgive them for giving in to frustration, anger, or outbursts of wrath. Lord, forgive me for (list any sins that You have committed). Holy Spirit, remind the wives and husbands of those they need to forgive and help them to be quick to forgive. As for me, Holy Spirit, bring to my remembrance those I need to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show You names or faces of people that You may need to forgive. As He shows You, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).” Now, trust the Lord to heal any wounds in Your soul caused by unforgiveness.)

 

Holy Spirit, help the wives and husbands who desire to get pregnant to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.

Sovereign Lord, You are the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for You? You are mighty, but You do not despise anyone. You are mighty in both power and understanding. You are greater than we can understand. Your years cannot be counted. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

May 8: A Prayer for Our Mothers

Heavenly Father, we thank You for blessing our mothers. We declare our thanks and devotion to You for Your goodness and loving kindness towards them.  We thank You for creating each of them in Your image. Thank You for Your plans for good and not for disaster, to give them a future and a hope.  Lord, You are our God and there is none other, we worship You in the beauty of Your Holiness.  You are the true and living God to whom all honor and glory belongs.  We will love You, Lord our strength.  You are our rock, our fortress and our deliverer.  You are our God, our strength in whom we will trust.

Wonderful Father, we declare that our mothers are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. We confess with holy boldness that our mothers will give their children the Word of God, daily structure, love, discipline, encouragement, healthy lifestyle practices and a good education.  As mothers, they will train up their children in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.  We confess that our mothers will not copy the behavior and customs of this world, but they are transformed by the Holy Spirit to do what is good and pleasing and perfect in Your sight.  We decree that the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control is operable in their lives.  The light of Jesus is reflected in their actions.  We confess that they are virtuous women and their price is far above rubies.
