One of my favorite prayer times is going through the church directory and praying for families.
If you would enjoy praying this way, here is a simple way to get started.
Open your church directory and ask God to draw your attention to a family’s name. Or go alphabetically, one at a time.
Start with just one family.
Place your hand over their name or photo.
Pray this prayer for them:
God, thank You for this precious family. Bless them, Lord. Help them feel Your love for them today. Thank You for meeting their needs and for drawing them closer to You. Encourage them, strengthen them in Your love, and give them peace. In Jesus’ name. Amen
I guarantee you they will feel your prayers, like a wave of peace washing over them. They will know God is with them, and how much He loves them.
Your church family needs your prayers today. Thank you for praying.
