Read: Psalm 37:39-40 NIV

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

Read: Ephesians 1:13 NIV

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,


Heavenly Father, I praise You and thank You for every single member of my family. Each of them are a reminder of how You are a God of miracles. You knew us all before we took our first breath. You made us for a purpose, You have a great plan for us all. Lord, thank You for Your gift of salvation. That all who would believe that Jesus came to this earth, that He died for our sins and rose from the grave to sit at the right hand of the Father, so that we can find refuge from evil, and live with You forever. You saved us from death, and You gave us life! Thank You for the grace and mercy that You poured out for us on the cross. 

Father, not every person in my family knows You – how that must break your heart, as it does mine. I ask that You, through the power of the Holy Spirit, give me the right words to say to lead them to You. Help me to live in a way that shows my loved ones You live inside of me. They will know You are real by the way I love them. Forgive me for any selfish motives I may have in asking for their salvation. I don’t want them to know You so that my life will be easier, but rather because You are the way to everlasting life. I desire for my loved ones to know You because that is Your will. I surrender them to You now. Let Your will be done in my family’s lives. I praise You for all that You have done in my life and all that You are about to do in each person of my family. I pray this in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
