Hope from the Truths of God's Word

Praying for My Valentines

I hope your life is full of people you would call your Valentine.

There are parents, grandparents, best friends, siblings, nieces, and nephews who have my heart. And over 13 years ago, I gave my heart away to my #1 Valentine  who loves me so patiently. More and more each year, he reflects the gentle love of Jesus to me in his words and actions. I am blessed! My life is filled with LOVE!

I didn’t buy Valentine cards this year. None of them would say what my heart prays for them. But Ephesians 3: 14-20 does. I’m sharing my prayer for them here today. And I hope you steal it for your Valentines too.

When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father,the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.

Thank You God for creating each of my loved ones so uniquely and with such purpose and promise.

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit.

Father, You are all powerful and hold all the resources of the world at your disposal. Please send your Holy Spirit to fill their lives with Your inner strength. The perfect strength they need for every trial, temptation, and challenge.

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him.

Please intervene in their lives in ways that will increase their awareness of You and their trust in You. I agree there is no better place for their trust than in You.

Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.

You are the love that matters, that changes darkness to light. With a knowledge of Your love they will be strong. Let it be so, God.

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.

Your love is extravagant. No earthly gift can compare to Your generous affection, attention, and gifts. Please don’t let them go another day or night without understanding how BIG Your love for them is.

May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully.

I ask You Father to bring the experience of Your love to each of them. Let it sink in deeper than words in their ears.

Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

Your love is the perfect antidote for everything they need. I ask you to complete them with Your love.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.

I have seen Your mighty love and mighty power accomplish more than I could ever imagine in my life and in theirs. I can’t wait to shout your praises God for the love, blessings, and changes that You are bringing to those I love so dearly. I am already in awe of what You will do!

Amen

God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.
