Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything. He longs to hear your requests, so talk to God about your needs and be thankful for what has come. And know that the peace of God (a peace that is beyond any and all of our human understanding) will stand watch over your hearts and minds in Jesus, the Anointed One. Philippians 4:6-7 The Voice
Pray It UP For Your Family
This is a family prayer exhortation, prayed and hoped for our family members. My husband and I pray for all our family and extended family on Monday nights, because we believe and know God hears our prayers and changes things up in our family. God has the final word in all our families, therefore, it is part of His perfect plan and purpose for us to pray for our family members. I hope this family prayer exhortation inspires you to set aside time each week to pray for your family.
Lord God, break into the conversation we have with the enemy of our soul, the one that begins with “what if” and follows with stormy doubts that wreak havoc with our soul-emotion with winds of worry, anxiety and fear. Call us Holy Spirit, out of the storms created by doubt, to fully face our God and listen up for His truth, His final word that will calm our disrupted mind. Jesus, divinely interrupt the enemy of our souls plans for a hurricane in our soul, thwart it. I pray the conversation between You and us begins purposefully at the point the enemy interjected his stormy thoughts and I pray, You Lord God backtracks every lie with Your Truth.
“If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room, I would not fear a million enemies. Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.” Robert Murray McCheyne
Heart Of Gratitude
Jesus, I pray You break the chains of worry off the soul of our family, cut the soul ties to doubt in the name of Jesus. Draw us by Your Spirit of gratitude to prayer, let a conversation with You be the first normal and constant reaction to the sudden family storms that rise up with violence against our soul. Jesus may our spiritual response in times of attack by our enemy, be a heart of gratitude that drives us to powerful, faith filled prayer.
Prince Of Peace
Holy Spirit, give this family a grateful heart, help us to talk to God daily with a thankful heart, leading every conversation. Stir up our souls in gratitude, help us to see the faithfulness of our God clearly. I pray we are soul saturated, deeply, with the peace of our Prince of Peace, Jesus.
“If God be our God, He will give us peace in trouble. When there is a storm without, He will make peace within. The world can create trouble in peace, but God can create peace in trouble.” Thomas Watson
Purposeful Thought Lives
Father God, I pray You stand watch over the hearts of this family and I hope huge in You, our Awe-God, that You help us to “grow through” this chaotic, lawless, and tumultuous time. Let us be soul saturated with the sweet, wonderful peace of God, which reassures our family, deep in our hearts. Oh Father, I pray and I ask You to keep our thought lives saturated with Your Peace, let it bypass the understanding of our minds and flow in the discernment of Your great purposes that are in play.
Great Challenge ~Greater Purpose
Lord God, I pray we see every great challenge that we as a family face, not from a worldly viewpoint of a “great challenge”, but from the Kingdom perspective of a “great God purpose”. Jesus help us to know without a doubt, that the God purpose in the challenge we face as a family, is greater than the challenge itself.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 Living Bible
I call out to You, Servant Prayer Warrior, Jesus, asking You to intercede with me for every member of this family. I call their names out to You, Mighty Deliverer and ask You to break the chains of worry, anxiety, doubt and fear from the spirit of each of these precious family members, in Jesus Name, by the power of His Resurrection. Amen.
Attitude Of Gratitude
Jesus, our personal Prince of Peace, I pray for You to soul saturate this family with a peace that keeps our thoughts quiet, so we can rest in trust, even in the fiercest of life storms. Draw this family to personal relationship with You, Jesus, to a life response of prayer, an attitude of gratitude and a desire to talk it up with You first, in each and every situation we face, especially those beyond our means to understand and wrap our minds around
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 New Living Translation
Calm. Be calm our souls in the sweet whisper of Jesus’ Voice in us, saying: “Peace, be still”. Even so, Lord Jesus, even if we don’t have the solution to all of our family problems, may Your Peace take residence in our souls and settle in and relax our souls. How? With a calm that knows You, Lord Jesus, are the Solution to each of our problems and you are continuously with us and for us and will deliver us from every single life storm, whenever and however You please, and yes, You do please.
Father God saturate the souls of this family with assurance that flows forth into our lives as a strong, unmovable trust flowing into the worldly viewpoint of our perceived or speculated future, and changing it up as a Kingdom perspective that knows that whatever we are seeing, that in the unseen, God purpose is in play for our greatest good.
Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. Philippians 4:6-7 Amplified
Holy Spirit hover over the people created chaos of our day by day family lives, and when the enemy stirs up strife, we pray for Your Peace, which transcends all of our understanding. Peace of God garrison Your stronghold of truth for us and mount guard over our hearts and all the minds in our family. We look to You to work out our salvation in that way only You can and to intertwine our life situations with Kingdom purpose.
Chaos Ridden Generation
No chaos formed against us with evil intent will hold our family captive in Jesus name. Deep within our spirit, Lord Jesus, seed each of us with Your peace that surpasses all surface disruption and takes every distraction to God’s truth, captive. As we live in this lawless generation, where disrespect and dishonor of authority is common place, let every chaotic family situation that suddenly rises in the heart of our family be overthrown by the peace You have rooted deeply in us.
“Peace comes when there is no cloud between us and God. Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God’s removal of that which obscures His face and so breaks union with Him.” Charles H. Brent
Chaotic Cultural Viewpoint
It is my prayerful hope that our family will bloom in Your peace, a peace which is overgrowing anxiety, fear and doubt, crowding it out, with a steadfast security in our Kingdom future. May the faith of every family member be deeply rooted in Kingdom soil, and from this deep root, may each person gain a Kingdom perspective that steps out and crushes down on the chaotic cultural viewpoint that distracts with confusion and false narrative. Jesus, I pray Your truth peacefully stands and I ask You to make a way to let each family member calmly, coolly, confidently stand on the side of Your truth in the all of their everything.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 New International Version
Prayer Conversation With God
In conclusion of this amazing prayer conversation with You, for peace to reign in our family, I ask you Father God to be our Keeper, the keeper of our thoughts and keep our hearts quiet, resting in our trust of Your Son, Jesus, our Prince of Peace, Who will watch over each of our families and exceed the understanding of each of our minds, guarding our hearts with a stable strength, a joy like no other.
Working Out Goodness
May God’s peace leave us each of us in a tranquil state of soul, assured in Your Salvation that is purposefully working out its goodness in each of our lives, so we will fear nothing from God and be content with our earthly lot, whatever comes our way.
“There is what is called the “cushion of the sea.” Down beneath the surface that is agitated by storms, and driven about by with winds, there is a part of the sea that is never stirred… The peace of God is that eternal calm which, like the cushion of the sea, lies far too deep down to be reached by any external trouble and disturbance: and those who enter into the presence of God become partakers of that undisturbed and undisturbable calm.” Quote By: Dr. A.T. Pierson
