PRAY FOR YOUR FAMILY
But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua 24:15 NLT
The area of a family is where the devil fights hard to get control over it. We all face different problems in our families; we have things that bother us in every angle of our families. Many times we remember to pray for many things; but we tend to forget praying for our families.
Many members of our families don't know God. Some believe in witchcraft, consult mediums and wizards; and sacrifices their sons and daughters to the demons. We have many members of our families who are bound by religious spirits; and don't want to hear anything about Jesus.
There are those who don't believe about salvation which is found in our Lord Jesus Christ. They believe that you cannot be saved in this world; you need to die first that you may be saved. This is the lie that the devil has been spreading in religious system but in the reality the Bible says: And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, Hebrews 9:27.
This morning, I want to encourage you to pray for your family. If you real love your family and you want to see nothing but best in them; then you need to spend enough time in prayers praying for their salvation. It will be wonderful in heaven if all members of your family will be there with you.
If you will not pray for them and share with them the word of God; then they may end up in hell of fire. God has placed you in that particular family that you may be a light and salt among them. If you have Jesus in you; then ask Him to give you wisdom to share with them the word of God that they may believe what you believe.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, I'm asking that You may give me strength to pray for my family. Lord I'm asking that You may save each member of my family. Grant them the salvation that is found in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
