Lord, help us to walk in genuine love and compassion for those You have set us in the midst of. Help us to bring a Godly influence upon all of our interactions with them and to receive them as a “divine gift” from God to help develop both them and us.
(Leviticus 19:18, Luke 10:27, Romans 15:2)
Father, help us to believe that you can change the heart of anyone who opposes us as their enemy, while giving us grace and sincere respect to still treat them as a person created in your image.
(Matthew 5:43-45, Luke 6:35)
Lord, move on our hearts to rightly value those who are willing to call us ‘friends,’ as it represents a reflection of your life and grace upon our lives and living. Keep us tender and prayerful for their advancement in Christ and their fulfillment in life.
(Psalms 119:63, Proverbs 27:10, John 15:13)
We pray for men who are fearlessly righteous and unashamedly devoted to Christ and His Kingdom purposes in the earth. Father, bring forth men who will lead in sacrifice, and boldly refuse to compromise truth.
(Psalm l15:1, 4; Deuteronomy 31:6, 1 Kings 2:1-3)
Lord, populate the earth with women who honor the call of womanhood and motherhood; ladies who remain tender and compassionate, while moving in a feminine strength and quiet virtue, even in the most trying of life’s circumstances; women who refuse to give up believing.
(Proverbs 31:10-11, 28-30, Matthew 9:20-21)
Young Boys & Men
Father, bring forth a deep longing and desire within our sons to know their God and to reflect His nature in their attitudes and life choices. Cause them to emulate the Godly examples of those who have gone on before them in the faith, embracing their cross and standing fast against the carnal culture of their day.
(Hebrews 12:1-3, 1 Samuel 14:6, 1 Samuel 17:26)
Young Girls & Ladies
Father, we pray for the innocent fragrance of purity and unblemished beauty of our young girls and ladies. Refresh the wells of rich joy and gentle grace that flows from hearts and hopes that have not been polluted with the negativity and sensuality of our decadent culture.
(Philippians 4:8, Song of Solomon 8:4)
