March WEEK 1
YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
Pray that you and your family would know the love of Christ and respond in love and obedience to Him.
To know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. — Eph. 3:19
Prayer by highplainsparson
O Lord, you have loved me and my wife and children and beyond our comprehension. You sacrificed your own dear Son for us. He gave his life for us and endured much affliction. No greater love has a man than to give his life for his friends. This is the love that you’ve given to us. There’s nothing that we can ever do to repay you. But let the love that you’ve given us be reflected in our words and actions, especially to one another. We ask your forgiveness for unkind words and actions. We ask for forgiveness for omitting duties of love that we owed to one another various times. Teach us to love one another as we ought to, by your Spirit working through your word preached and read as we are blessed that you have not left us to wonder what shape and form of our love is supposed to take in response to your love, but you have given a specific instructions in your word on how to die to self, to love you most of all, and others as ourselves. We tend to love ourselves only too much, but you’ve demonstrated your love toward us in sacrificing your Son Jesus Christ for us. Let us likewise put others before ourselves especially our family members. And may this love be reflected and exercised in your church toward others that you have loved with your eternal saving love, so the world may say, “See how they love one another,” and be drawn to you by your love working in us. We pray this in Jesus name, amen.
