3 Ways to Pray For Your Family With Confidence
If you are apart of a family most likely you know where they are. Nowadays there are apps to locate loved ones or smart homes to let you know when they arrive home. I am one that is not so technologically advanced and have to rely on my kids or youtube to help me with certain tasks on the phone.
One app our family downloaded, is the Life 360 app which can tell me the exact location of my family. I simply click on the app and pictures of my family pop up on the map of where they are located. The app comes in handy when I’m at work and it’s not my day to carpool. I know when the kids arrive at school because the app alerts me, they arrived! The app also tells me how much battery life each family member’s phone has to let me know if their phone is about to die in case I’m not able to get ahold of them.
Isn’t it nice to know the location of your family and they are safe?
Knowing the location of our families isn’t just important in the physical sense, knowing where they are spiritually is just as important. We need to keep track, so we where they are and if they are safe.
3 Ways to Pray for Your Family With CONFIDENCE:
“My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:2-4
Do you know where your family is going?
“Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure” (Ephesians 1:4-5 NLT).
When we believe in Jesus and accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we are all apart of one big family. How amazing will it be when we are reunited again with our loved ones? How amazing will it be to know we are all in the same place?
Just as our phones can’t operate without being charged our physical lives can’t operate without sleep and nourishment, as our spiritual lives can’t survive without a relationship with God. Staying in prayer, staying in His word, not only gives us the spiritual strength we need but also transforms our hearts and lives. There is a Bible app that can help refill our spiritual lives that has lots of info of the place God has prepared for us.
We don’t have to have it all together to follow Jesus, in fact Jesus loves broken people. He loves everyone no matter who they are. When Jesus comes back he’s not going to ask us, “Do you believe everything the Bible says?” He’s going to ask, “Do you believe I sent my son to die for you?”
If you are a believer, you become my sister or brother in Christ. Nothing brings me more joy than to know my brothers and sisters are going to heaven. We become apart of the same lineage, adopted into the same family. If you’re struggling, it’s okay to wrestle with God and question why? I promise you He has the answer to your pain, your heartache and struggle–His love. God loves you more than anything.
