I'm Praying for You Today

Hi, there. I just wanted to let you know that I’m praying for you today. I know you have struggles. Some you share, some you hide from the world, and some you may even hide from yourself.

But God sees.

He sees you, and he loves you and maybe he even prompted me to write this today just for you, because he knew you needed it right at this moment. To know that you are seen, and to know that you are loved. Just as you are, right now:

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” - Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV)

“Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.” - Psalm 139:7-12 (NIV)

“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” - Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)

“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” - Psalm 34:18 (NIV)

“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” - 1 John 3:1a (NIV)

My prayer for you today:

Loving Father, I lift my sister up to you today. We praise you for being all-seeing, all-knowing, and I ask that you would search her heart and meet every single one of her needs today: body, mind and spirit. The ones she has shared, as well as the ones that are locked away, maybe even hidden from herself or disguised as other needs.

Open her eyes to your great love for her. Let your love wash over her like a crashing wave, awakening her to the beauty and wonder of your mighty hand at work in her, through her and all around her. Heighten her sense of your presence, until she is overflowing with the Joy of the Lord.

Let her encounter you as Moses did on the mountain, that all who meet her would see you reflected in her face and feel you in the touch of her hand. Plant a passion in her heart to meet with you, to connect with you in a powerful, life-changing way. Make your desires known to her, and let her heart reflect your own and her prayers magnify your perfect will and unleash power she’s never before seen in her life or the lives of others!

Thank you for this beautiful woman of God. Daughter of the King! Let your Spirit be a filter through which every thought passes, that you would protect her from lies and negative self-talk that come from her own thoughts or from the enemy’s attempts to tear her down. Allow only Truth about who she is in Christ and what she can do through him (Philippians 4:13: ANYTHING!) to remain.

“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” - 2 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV)

Empower her, embolden her and equip her to live out the abundant, God-glorifying life you created her for. In the powerful name of Jesus! Amen.

We always love hearing from you, so if you have something specific you’d like prayer for today, please e-mail us at connect@prayingchristianwomen.com.
