A Prayer for Family Members Who have Turned Away from God’s Calling
Almighty God, I sing praises to your most holy and merciful name, for it is great and worthy to be praised! I make a joyful noise unto You, serving You with gladness and joy. Omnipotent and Omnipresent Father, I honour You and thank You for Your many blessings that I have so graciously received. Thank You for Your goodness and for the privilege I have to worship You. I will continue to adore Your greatness! I glorify and worship You Abba Father and thank You for Your ever-sufficient grace and for carrying me through every season.
Jehovah Nissi, my Banner, I bring before You, my family members who have turned away from Your calling. I pray that You will take control of them; bring them back to the faith, to their first love. Have an encounter with them that would be so powerful that they will have no alternative but to turn back to You and walk in Your righteousness. I recognize that my power is based on Your favor and since You have given me the authority to trample the enemy, I now tear down every stronghold that continues to hold my family members captive. I use Your powerful tools to demolish any knowledge or reality that has been twisted out of shape, pulling down obstacles that come against the truth of God. I proclaim victory over their lives. I call it done, in the mighty name of Jesus!
As I meditate on Your Word, Father, I intercede for all the members of my family while looking to You for strength and encouragement. When they feel afraid, Lord and they think they’ve lost their way, help them to be still and know that YOU are GOD. As long as You walk with them, Lord, they will arise, for Your glory shall be upon them. They are the HEAD and not the tail, they are ABOVE and never beneath. Lord Jesus, I pray for your continued favour and protection and for Your light to shine on their pathway. In the name of Jesus, I ask these blessings upon each and every member of my family, SO BE IT…AMEN!
