My sister, keep praying for your family.

“…The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by Godβ€”it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]” James 5:16b, Amplified.

For years I have been praying for my family to come to know the Lord. I never know how or when God will do it, I just know He hears my prayers. One by one, He has been reaching deep down and rescuing every single loved one. They will never know how much I’ve prayed for them. To see their spiritual growth, see God’s light in their eyes, and hear their prayers brings joyful tears.

My sister, keep praying for your family. God heard you the moment you opened your mouth to pray. He heard you, and He is going to answer your prayer in His perfect timing and in His perfect way. He has released the hound of heaven on those you love the most because He loves them more. He is softening hardened hearts, opening blinded eyes, and causing lost souls to be found. Please continue to pray with all your heart for your cousins, your sisters, your brothers, your mother, your father, your aunts, and your uncles.

What did God do for you? He looked past your faults and saw your need for Him, and at the appointed time, He saved you. He came in and cleaned you up and washed away all your sin. Now, no one can tell that you did the things you once did. God has dressed you in holiness and gave you a new heart, a new mind, a new name, and a new identity. And now what He has done for you, He wants to do for your family, but He needs you to pray for them and love them until they come home.

He will do exactly what He has promised, and He will save you and your household (see Acts 16:31). None will be lost. None.

Prayer: Father, thank you for giving me the strength to pray. Thank you for helping me not to give up on my family. No matter what I see or feel, I trust that you hear my prayers for my family. Thank you for softening hardened hearts, healing wounded souls, and saving those who are lost. Do what only you can by saving them, Father, and help me do my part of trusting you and being your daughter and your servant. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Proverbs 11:30; John 6:39)

  5. My husband grew up Catholic all of his life and constantly tells me that he knows the Bible by heart, frontwards and backwards. But refuses to go to church with me and doesn’t let me finish listening to my Gospel music. He’ll change the station really quick. Now, let me confirm that he’s a Born Again Christian, Amen πŸ™ He said he’s been Rebaptized and Has Given himself back to Christ, Receiving His Salvation In Jesus Name, Amen πŸ™ So, before I packed up and moved from a very far away State, of course, I questioned him about God and Our Lord and Savior Jesus! I confirmed, A house that Prays Together, Stays Together Amen πŸ™ And he Agreed! He also agreed on going to church with me. So, help me here my brothers and sisters! Hearing All of this, then why is it when I’m praying and I extend my hand out to him, so that I can pray for Our Matrimony, he refused to give me his hand and then tells me that he will Not be Pressured Into Praying with me, Going To Church With Me Or Anything Church Related! I explained, Hun I just want to hold your hand while I pray for us, Our Marriage and Our Home and Families! He still said No! And left me alone to pray by myself πŸ™ as I did, but he hurt my feelings! With COVID-19, there’s no telling when who’s going to go? I’m very sick and can’t afford to catch it so I’m constantly praying about that over myself and all of my family, love ones and friends, my neighbors and all my brothers and sisters of Christ and throughout the World, all the Children, Nurses and Doctors, Amen πŸ™ I could use all the prayers I could get, Amen πŸ™ But someone Please help me out here with my husband! I’m constantly praying πŸ™ over him, God bless him and God bless us, Amen πŸ™ bcuz I told him that God Comes 1st Over Anyone In My Life And That Even Includes Him, Amen πŸ™ So, he needs to get his Act together bcuz I take God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit Very Serious As I Don’t Play With My Beliefs And He Will Find Himself, By Himself And I’m Not Joking! I Will Leave You! And then, I walked away this time! But I felt bad! I don’t want to argue with him, I just want to draw him closer to God, Amen πŸ™ Am I wrong?

    1. I want to thank all of my sisters and my brother, for all of your Prayerful Comments, Amen πŸ™ I received them all, In Jesus Name, Amen πŸ™ I shall let Jesus do His Marvelous Works On My Husband, as I continue to Pray πŸ™ for My Husband, In Jesus Name Hallelujah πŸ™Œ πŸ™Œ I bow down to Jesus and Let Him Take Control, as I have no Control But My Lord Jesus Christ Does, Amen πŸ™ Thank You Lord Jesus πŸ™ for Never Failing Me, Amen πŸ™ and Thank you to all of you once again, God Bless You ALL and Your Families, Amen πŸ™

    2. Hi my Sister. I know it hurts I been there and I fell short of the glory many times by fighting back the more I focussed on the hurt the more the problem grew however HOLY SPIRIT would bring to rememberance the WORD so id repent and saw that I needed to obey what the word said LOVE forgive be merciful for our LORD is merciful and cast all our cares and burdens upon HIM and take HIS for it is lite. And most importantly Hand your husband over to HIM JESUS pray for HIS Salvation and even if you’ve moved away still pray for HIM as You continue to work out Your Salvation. All my LOVE God Bless You in JESUS Name AMEN πŸ’œβš˜

  6. Thank you for the reminder to pray for our families and friends. We are called by God to pray for all that touch our lives. We may not see what God is doing in others lives, but we can be assured that He is working in their lives, and God will will answer our prayers in His own β€œperfect” timing Glory Hallelujah!

  7. Amen. I will keep praying for my family. It’s really hard to keep praying for the family when you see no results. It seems like the more you pray, the more things happen that’s not of God. But, God!! I thank Him for being a Covenant and Promise Keeping God!! And knowing that He working all things together for our good. Then, in his word that time and chance happens to everyone. We knowing there is a time and season for all things. Plus, He wants all to be saved. So I will keep praying for my many family members and know there is an appointed time. Thank You, Father, for letting me know that You hear my and telling me not to give up no matter what it looks like to me.

    Sister Kesha, thank you for reminding me when He came to me and saved me, and to know that He loves my family members more than me and wants the best for them all. God blessπŸ™πŸŒΉπŸ’•πŸŒΉπŸ’•

  8. The timing of this devotional is certainly providential because of this sentence:

    Please continue to pray with all your heart for your cousins, your brothers, your sisters, your mother, your father, your aunts and your uncles.

    The reason why is because cousin was listed first! Last night I learned one of my cousins on my fathers side of the family had died. Our Grandmother was a godly woman and she always exhibited a heart for Jesus. This event prompts me to fervently pray for her siblings and their children. May God use my cousin’s death as a way to bring more of our family to know Jesus. βœοΈπŸ™β™₯️

  9. Thank you for this, I know I am where I am today because of a praying mother and son. Prayer is so powerful. Never ever stop praying for your loved ones, your friends, your enemies (yes, even them), your city, your state and country for God hears your prayers and even when they dont look like they are working, God is always working but it is all in His time not ours. Thank you for this.

  10. You said we’re to continue pray for our loved ones because he hears our prayers. I prayed for my husband to get saved & this didn’t happen.I prayed for his healing when he got sick in 2019 it didn’t happen.He pass in 2020. So wjat am I to believe

  11. FATHER, I praise You and thank You for the encouragement that You offer us. I thank and praise You for Your grace and mercy. You, FATHER, heard our prayers and You, made a way for each and everyone of us in CHRIST JESUS. Just as You met Jacob where he was, I stand in faith that You will meet each of our family members along the way…. I believe….. LORD, I believe. Hallelujah!!! Praise You LORD for victory, for salvation for Your children. Amen
