I asked the Lord to show me a verse to pray over my family for 2017 and I want to share it with you. I believe He led me to Isaiah 26:3 which says,
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”
I pray that you would help us to keep our minds set on you; remove any impure thoughts that prevent us from seeing and hearing you. Help us to trust in you no matter the circumstances. Give us the peace that surpasses understanding as we seek to know you more this year than we have in the past. May our home be a place of peace and may all who enter experience the peace that comes from knowing you. As we strive to know you more, may others be drawn to you through your work in our lives to transform us into your image.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Is there a passage God is calling you to pray over your life or your family this year? If so, I’d love for you to share it with me so I can pray for your family as well.
