ARE YOU PRAYING SCRIPTURES (Devontional Charlene Cares)
- ARE YOU PRAYING SCRIPTURES? -
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to
me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the
purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
Do you believe in the power of prayer? I believe that prayer is one
of the most important keys in marriage restoration. It is also the
one area where many Christians feel the most inadequate. This summer
don't relax, but pray more for your spouse.
I pray that our daily devotionals challenge you to "just talk" to
your Heavenly Father about everything! I challenge you even more to
ask the Lord to tune your ears and your spouses's ears to hear His
soft voice. God does speak to His children daily. If you marriage
looks hopeless, start praying and seeking your Lord God for His
perfect answer just for you and your marriage.
I ran out of words what to say in my prayer time, so the Lord started speaking to my heart to pray the Word of God to Him in prayers. She will share two prayers that she has made using many different scriptures, that you can pray for your spouse
and loved ones.

"Praise the Lord, O my soul all my inmost being, praise His holy
name. Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry for help come to You. Do
not hide Your face from me when I am in distress. Turn Your ear to
me; when I call, answer me quickly. Show me and my loved ones Your
ways, O Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach
me, for You are God our Savior, and our hope in You all day long.
"For I have no power to face this vast army (problem) that is
attacking me. I do not know what to do, but my eyes are upon You.
Help me not to be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army.
(problem) For the battle is not mine, but God's. Thank You Lord,
that I do not have to be afraid. I will stand firm and will see the
deliverance the Lord will bring me today. The Lord will fight for
me; I need only to be still.
"I pray that You will speak--now one way, now another--though man may
not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep
sleep falls on men as they slumber in their beds, He may speak in
their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn my prodigal and
loved ones from wrongdoing and keep them from pride to preserve
their soul from the pit. Thank You Lord, that You will break the
bars of their yoke and rescue them from the hands of those who have
"You said You will search for the lost and bring back the strays, You
will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak. Lord, I thank You
that in Job Chapter 33 that when my loved ones prays to God and find
favor with You, he will see God's face and shout for joy; they will
be restored by God to their righteous state.
"Lord, cleanse me and my spouse from all our impurities and from all
our idols. Give me and my spouse a new heart and put a new spirit
in us. Lord, remove from each of us our heart of stone and give us
each a new heart of flesh. Thank You that You will put Your spirit
in both of us to move us to follow Your decrees and be careful to
keep Your laws.
"You are the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are
not as though they were. Praise You Lord, that we are more than
conquerors in Christ. You are able to do immeasurably more than all
we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within
us. For nothing is impossible with God. Then the nations around you
that remain will know that I the Lord have rebuilt what was
destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the Lord have
spoken, and I will do it. Amen."

"O Lord, God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps His
covenant of love with those who love Him and obey his commands, let
Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open to hear the prayer your
servant is praying before You day and night. Have mercy on my
spouse, O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your
great compassion blot out all their transgressions. Wash away all
their iniquities and cleanse them from their sins.
"Create in my spouse a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast
spirit within them. Lord give me and my spouse a new heart and put
a new spirit in us; You will remove from my spouse their heart of
stone and give them a heart of flesh. Thank You Lord, for I know
You are our Lord when You break the bars of their yoke and rescue
them from the hands of those who have enslaved them.
"Thank You Lord for You said, "Restrain your voice from weeping and
your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded, They will
return from the land of the enemy." So there is hope for our
future. Lord, lead out my spouse and all those who have eyes but
are blind, who have ears but are deaf. God may You speak in their
ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn men from wrongdoing and
keep them from pride, preserve their souls from the pit.
"Lord, my prayer today is that all prodigal spouses will cry out and
repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ for the
forgiveness of their sins. That they will receive the gift of the
Holy Spirit. Now, my God, may Your eyes be open and Your ears
attentive to the prayers offered in this place.
"Everything is possible for those who believes. Help me overcome my
unbelief. Ah, Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and the
earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard
for You. Blessed am I who has believed that what the Lord has said
will be accomplished, for nothing is impossible with God.

2:45,37.)What is God's design for marriage? I believe that God hates divorce and we as women should do all we can toward standing for our marriage. This is a group that through prayer and support from each other we will grow together as God would have us to do.
