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 is going to do it, I just know He hears my prayers and sees my tears. One by one, God has been saving my cousins, my aunts, my uncles. 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 to not 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)

  2. This is an “on-time” word as I was ponderlong whether to write and send a letter to my mother regarding respecting healthy boundaries. I have and will continue to pray for my family.
