Hello beautiful, the time is upon us to challenge ourselves once again to 12 days of prayer for our spouses, children and ourselves. While the original inspiration behind this challenge was to pray for our husbands, we’ve gradually expanded our prayers to reach our children.
You may say, “we fight all the time, we argue all the time and so on; so I don’t have anything to pray for him about.”
Oh sister, you do!
Now let me ask you this? “Do you want to keep fighting and arguing? Have you told God about it lovingly? Not because you want God to crush him, but because you love him and you know you shouldn’t be fighting?”
Early in the year while I meditated and asked the Lord what December would be like, I had a passing thought – “How about I invite others to send in their requests.” And since then, this thought has not left me. While I’ve lifted many in prayers in my private corner. I believe that when we lift each other up as a family, our knocks on heaven’s door are louder and firmer.
This year for the first time, we have invited you to send in your requests in accordance to James 5:16 TPT – Confess and acknowledge how you have offended one another and then pray for one another to be instantly healed, for tremendous power is released through the passionate, heartfelt prayer of a godly believer!
Now, as you come to this challenge, I want you to come with an open heart to pray. We aren’t here on a revenge mission or an “I told you so” quest. We are here to take our positions as that “GOOD THING” we are described as in Proverbs 18:22 ERV – If you find a wife, you have found something good. She shows that the Lord is happy with you.
Let our presence in the lives of our husbands, cause them to experience the unhindered, uncommon, unfettered favor of God.
I welcome you to the challenge. Please invite your friends and families to join us, as we give our families the gift of prayers for the first 12 days in December. (Our 12 days of Christmas)
