Galatians 5:16 “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”

Heavenly Father, thank you for the joy and blessing of children and grandchildren; that through intercessory prayer I can be involved in their spiritual growth and development regardless of their age or location.

I ask that every day You will help my loved ones to walk under the control of the Holy Spirit and not to fulfill the lust of the flesh. Open their eyes to see the truth in Your Word and encourage them to be willing to listen to the direction You have for them in every situation. May their life be lived for You.

If there is any sin or rebellion in their life, I pray that You would create in them a heart of repentance: the kind of heart that is humble and turned towards You.

Since not one of us can know God’s ways without reading His Word, I pray that You will give my children and grandchildren a desire and love for it (Psalm 19:7-14).

Thank you for reminding me that You want to do, and can do, far more for my family than I ever could. Therefore, I ask You to speak to them by the power of Your Holy Spirit.

I bring these requests to You in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
