To Know God's Will

Father, I'm praying that (name one or more) and others in my circle of family and friends will know Your will...

Help them know Your will through the spiritual wisdom and understanding that comes from the Spirit so they may live lives worthy of You, pleasing You in every way. Help them to bear fruit, to influence others' lives in every good thing they do. May they constantly be growing in their understanding of who You are and in their awareness of how You work in the world. (Colossians 1:9, 1 John 2:28; Colossians 1:10)

Help them offer themselves as living sacrifices, desiring not to live like those who are giving in to the ways of the world but to be totally changed by the renewing of their minds. Then they will be able to know Your will—Your good, pleasing, and perfect will. (Romans 12:1–2)

May they yield their will to Yours and set their hearts on doing Your will. Help them set aside their own desires, seeking only Your will, standing firm and keeping on in Your strength. Help them be strong and not give up no matter what happens— filled with joy and thanksgiving. (Matthew 6:10; Ephesians 6:6; Colossians 4:12; Hebrews 10:36; Colossians 1:11–12a)

May they have no other desire than Yours. In Jesus' name, amen.
