Hear this prayer, read by Jessie Mejias.

I thank you, Father God, that the word that goes forth out of your mouth shall not return unto you void, but it shall accomplish that which you please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto you sent it. (Isaiah 55:11)

I thank you that your word is living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, and that it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

I thank you that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through you Father God for pulling down strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4)

I thank you that there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light. (Mark 4:22)

I pray that God would create in you a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit within you. (Psalm 51:10)

I pray that He would search you and know your heart; that He would try you, and know your anxious thoughts; and see if there is any offensive way in you, and lead you in the everlasting way. (Psalm 139: 23-24)

I pray that God would show you where you are turning to false refuges (Isaiah 28:15) and empower you to turn from them and have God and God alone as your refuge. (Psalm 91:2)

I thank God that even those in your family who have been taken captive by the mighty and who have been prey to the terrible will be delivered, that He will contend with those who contend with you and that He will save your children. (Isaiah 49:25)

I bring you to His throne of grace along with all of your family and loved ones, that you may all receive mercy and find grace to help you in your time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)

I pray for your family and loved ones who don’t yet know God and who are in opposition to Him and His word. I ask, Father God, that you would grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will. (2 Timothy 2:25-26)

I pray that each one of these will confess with their mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in their heart that God has raised Him from the dead, and so be saved. (Romans 10:9)

For all of your family and loved ones I keep asking that God the Father may give you all the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for you who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength. (Ephesians 1:17-19)

I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:16-19) until you all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then you will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, you will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is, Christ. (Ephesians 4:13-15)

I pray that God would help you, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:22-24)

I pray that God would set a guard over your mouths, and that He would keep watch over the door of your lips. (Psalm 141:3)

I pray that God would help those of you who have been stealing to steal no longer, but work, doing something useful with your own hands, that you may have something to share with those in need. (Ephesians 4:28)

I pray that God would help you to honor your fathers and mothers—which is the first commandment with a promise—that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth. (Ephesians 6:2-3)

I pray that God would remind you to judge not, lest you be judged. (Matthew 7:1)

I pray that God would help you daily to put on the full armor of God, girding your waists with truth, putting on the breastplate of righteousness, having your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; taking the shield of faith with which to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one and taking the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (Ephesians 6:13-18)

I pray that God would fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord, and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of Him, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. (Colossians 1:9-12)

May you know deep in your hearts that when you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, He made you alive with Christ. He forgave you all your sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against you and that stood opposed to you. He took it away, nailing it to the cross. (Colossians 2:13-14)

I pray that God would remind you daily that there is no fear in love but perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18) and that He has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

I pray that God would help you to not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves, but also to do what it says. (James 1:22)

May you be like those who look intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what you have heard, but doing it. May you be blessed in what you do. (James 1:25)

And now I pray that the Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26)
