Serving those who are responding to God’s call to love.

Run devil run

I just found out from a friend that a daughter of our mutual friend was in trouble again. She has struggled for many years with addiction among other things. Her dad and step-mama have prayed over her for years, have done all they can possibly do and have asked others to join them in prayer and still this. Moments like this can leave us feeling defeated. Our hearts break for what could be and what actually is. We can feel powerless, hopeless and tired.
Here’s the thing. That’s where satan wants us. He want us to believe that there is nothing more to do, he wants us to believe there is no hope and that there are just some that we are going to lose. We can get caught believing it because we’ve seen it happen. We’ve seen some that we’ve seemingly lost. BUT…where I am at right now, I refuse to believe those lies. Because THAT is what they are, lies.
We KNOW that in Christ, there is hope. We KNOW there is freedom. We KNOW that he can and will BREAK THE CHAINS. How do we know this? Because he says so. Let’s just go into scripture and stand on these promises now together. I would really like to take a minute in this blog and collectively pray for not only this young girl, but for all our kids that are lost and struggling. Because if we believe what we say we do, then we KNOW the power that is in your word.

Now that we have been encouraged by the word of God, let us join together in praying over our children and for this young lady. Father, you are who you say you are and we believe it. We believe it and we receive it. We have read your word and you have told us that there is power in your name. So we stand here in confidence today and ask for the strongholds that are holding our kids down and away from you, be BROKEN. We ask that you bind the culture of hate, comparison, idols, and ego. Lord, release for our kids YOUR vision for their lives. Lives filled with love, selflessness, grace, forgiveness, service, revelation and salvation. Show them that that it is really YOU they seek. That YOU ALONE will fill the voids they are seeking to fill. Father let them see it. Inject into their lives visions of what this looks like for them. Lord, we know that many things out there are counterfeits. They lure them in, offering what they cannot give. Break the falseness of this. Bring the Holy Spirit in to offer guidance. Give these young adults insight. Bring strong believers, the kind that seek you relentlessly into their lives. Bring your goodness and mercy to our kids Lord. Lord, we are tired of seeing the brokenness. We cannot stand to hear of one more suicide! We do not want to see families torn apart! We will not stand for this. Lord help us wake up. Help us remember the power in your name. We ask this in your powerful name. We anticipate your moving in their lives and we will glorify you in the waiting! Amen and AMEN!
