As he drew near the den, with anguish in his voice he called out to Daniel, hoping somehow he was still alive. Darius: Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, the One you have served so faithfully, been able to rescue you from these hungry lions? Daniel (to the king): 21 Long live the king! 22 As soon as you shut the mouth of this den, My God sent His heavenly representative to shut the mouths of these hungry lions so that they could not hurt me. He has rescued me because I am as innocent before Him as I am before you, O king. I have done you no harm. Daniel 6:20-22 The Voice
Jesus Put Us Above All And God Raised Him Above All
Jesus took the fall and put us above ALL. God has always put us first, above all and has pursued us over the generations, like we were a priceless treasure. Jesus Christ is still putting our families above all. Jesus has thought of us above all and put His thoughts into action as He gave His life for us, He died our death, so we could live His life. Jesus is still all in with our families, He still loves us above all. His heart motives, thoughts, intentions, actions are still putting us, His families above all.
“God is not looking for extraordinary characters as His instruments, but He is looking for humble instruments through whom He can be honored throughout the ages.” Author~ A.B. Simpson
Jesus Is All In With Us… STILL
Our Triune God Is The Same In Mercy-It Is Extended To All – STILL
Psalm 86:5 O Lord, you are so good and kind, so ready to forgive, so full of mercy for all who ask your aid.
We pray, Jesus, that Your mercy will flow in all the relationships of our family. May we be a family who is forbearing with one another, ready to forgive even if the person doesn’t deserve it, it will still be extended mercifully so. God’s Mercy Is Active On Our Behalf STILL.

Lord Jesus, I pray we are a family who is strong in the unmerited side of kindness. Not just being full of grace when it is easy, but giving undeserved favor to those who have not earned it.

Our Triune God Is The Same In Devotion-Loving Us Unconditionally – STILL
Matthew 5:43-48 You have been taught to love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44 But I tell you this: love your enemies. Pray for those who torment you and persecute you— 45 in so doing, you become children of your Father in heaven. He, after all, loves each of us—good and evil, kind and cruel. He causes the sun to rise and shine on evil and good alike. He causes the rain to water the fields of the righteous and the fields of the sinner. 46 It is easy to love those who love you—even a tax collector can love those who love him. 47 And it is easy to greet your friends—even outsiders do that! 48 But you are called to something higher: “Be perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
Jesus, teach our family how to take off the conditions of our love, first in our home and then in our neighborhoods and communities. Jesus, You loved us with a radical, unconditional love that spoke blessing to Your persecutors, prayed for them as they tortured You.

Lord God, you pursued our family, Your personality is full of the traits of a redeemer, reconciler, renewer, restorer and it is in your personality to save, deliver and heal. We pray to be a family who is constantly pursuing a family personality that has the same reputation, the same personality traits that You, Jesus have. May we be constantly adding redeeming, renewing, restoring value to those who cross paths with our family. May our family reputation be that of a healing family.

He is the living God, the unchanging One.” Author~George Mueller
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
