I thank + praise You for giving us instant, 24/7 access to You. You have blessed us so richly. May we never de-value Your tremendous sacrifice on our behalf, or treat it with indifference. Help us to keep our minds + hearts humble + pure.
I cont. to pray that You will give Alicia wisdom, discernment + clarity of vision. Please protect her faith + her relationship with You. May nothing interfere with her worship or her study of You + Your Word.
May she get the right kind of Christian support in her present + future. May her support system be exceedingly strong so that she will see thru the demonic deceptions that we are being bombarded with daily. Please make a way for her to get more connected at church. May young people her age reach out to her + help her get more involved. May she arrange her schedule so she can fellowship with them. TY that her practicum in the spring will not interfere with her PT nanny job for the pastor's sons. They are a positive influence on her.
May her knowledge of sign language not go to waste. Please find a way to use this gift You have given her for good. Our church has a small deaf community but she is not so skilled that she could interpret a service for them. Even so, I pray for a way to connect her to them or for You to find another way to use this gift.
TY so much for paying such close attention to each + every detail of our lives. Forgive us when we stumble + put ourselves first. Forgive our rebellion + help us to stop focusing on the wrong things + esp. to stop looking at the outside + making judgments based upon what we think we see. May we see each other with the love that You have for us.
Please protect Alicia from unemployment. TY for providing jobs for her so far. I esp. pray for her future career- may she find a job after grad school that will provide for her financially + be in her chosen career field, according to Your will. May it also be one that she can use to serve You.
May she never take her health for granted. Inspire her to take good nutrition + regular exercise seriously, + do all she can to maximize her health. May she also get enough sleep. May she enjoy taking care of her health + not be tempted to be cavalier about it. May she be determined to stick to healthy eating even when she is w her friends, + may she not feel left out if she is eating differently from them. May a friend teach her a lot about nutrition + participate w her in a nutrition + exercise program that will benefit both of them + may it spread to others.
May she consider cont. to study ASL to increase her job marketability, according to Your will.
Bless our m-d communication + relationship. Please keep harmony + closeness in our home. May her dad admit + seek help for his alcohol/Rx abuse + anger mgmt issues.
Protect our privacy, identities, career paths, reputations, finances, decisions, etc. May we not suffer from cyber attacks or financial reverses. May we remain safe + secure in our home. May Alicia not consider moving out until she has a stable job in her chosen field. When she does move, may the way she does it honor You + may she consult You before making any important decisions.
May Marty be moved to get to know You + confess You as Lord. May he begin to take care of his health + stick to a program of healthy eating, exercise, + losing weight so he will not suffer from the chronic diseases he is on the path to getting.
Please protect Alicia from false teachers + all predators. May Your Spirit stir in her + alert her to the presence of all those who want to take the focus off of You + put it on something else. May such miscreants never get near her--but if they do, fill her with a sense of warning so she will steer clear of them. May they not be given access to her.
In Your precious name, amen.
