Father, I'm praying for (name one or more) and others in my circle of family and friends to have the self-control they need in every area of life...
Strengthen their hearts so they will be holy and blameless
in Your presence when Christ comes. Help them make
every effort to be good and knowledgeable, self-controlled
and godly, relying on the Spirit's power within them.
(1 Thessalonians 3:13; 2 Peter 1:5–7; Ephesians 3:16)
May they imitate the Lord Jesus Christ in all they are and
everything they do, and may the way they live match what
they say they believe. May they make every effort to live clean
and holy lives, devoting themselves to You, to prayer, and to
doing good. (1 Thessalonians 1:6; 1 Corinthians 4:17; Hebrews 12:14a;
Leviticus 27:28; Jeremiah 30:21; Colossians 4:2; Titus 3:8b)
May they desire more than anything else to follow You,
setting their hearts and souls on seeking You. Help them move
from strength to strength, faith to faith, and glory to glory.
May their love increase and overflow for each other and for
everyone else. (Psalm 84:5; 1 Chronicles 22:19; Psalm 84:7; Romans 1:17;
2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 Thessalonians 3:12)
In Jesus' name, amen.
