SylviaAbba, take Your precious children

________ right up next to Your heart today. Keep them and make Your face shine upon them and be gracious to them (Num 6:24-25). Shower them with an outpouring of Your blessing, Your presence, the assurance of Your favor, and Your enabling grace.  You have written their days in Your book. You knew them by name before they were born (Ps 139:15-18).  Your thoughts of them are too numerous to count. They are constantly on Your mind. 

Assure ________ that Your presence goes with them, and don't let them go where You do not bless (Exo 33:12-16). Teach them Your ways and make them sensitive to Your hand on their  lives. Let them know Your faithful direction. Go before them to open the way where there seems to be no way. Please place before them an open door that no one can shut, according to Your sovereign will (Rev 3:7-8), and shut all doors outside Your will for them.

For ________,  bless them indeed and enlarge their territory in all areas in their lives! Let Your hand be with them to strengthen them and keep them from harm (1 Chron. 4:10). Establish Your appointed work through their hands with Your favor (Ps 90:17). Great are Your purposes, and mighty are Your deeds. Your eyes are open to all their ways (Jer 32:19). Smile upon them today with Your compassion and Your full blessing, as they seek You (Isa 30:18).  

Lord, ________ needs favor with their authorities that You have placed over them and with those in decision-making positions (Ezra 7:27, Neh 1:11). Your Word says, "The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, like the rivers of water. He turns it wherever He wishes" (Pro 21:1 NKJV).  Break through all hindrances, and turn the hearts of all concerned to fulfill Your will on their behalf. 

Protect their emotions, be a Daddy to them, and let them know that You are surrounding them with the shield of Your presence (Ps 5:12). Let them trust that You withhold no good thing from those whose walk is blameless (Ps 84:11). Keep them in Your love and faithfulness, written deeply in their heart (Prov 3:3-4). Let them know that You rejoice in doing them good (Jer 32:41).

Fix their hearts to set their hope completely in You, rely on You, and know that all things are totally in Your hands, for Jesus' sake (2 Cor 1:9-11). Let their expectation be centered in You (Ps 62:1,5). Give them peace (Num 6:26), because You have promised that You will keep in perfect peace those whose mind is steadfast, because they trust in You (Isa 26:3). In Jesus' name, Amen.
