FAMILY

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

—Prov. 22:6 (NKJV)

The enemy's attack on the family unit is anything but subtle these days. From legalized abortion to redefining marriage to high divorce rates to Internet porn addiction, Satan has successfully assaulted the family from all angles with an overt agenda to pull it apart and even negate its value.

To combat these attacks, families must put Christ above all things and make Him a solid foundation. And no weapon is stronger in this war than prayer.

  • Pray that parents will adhere to Proverbs 22:6 and train their children in the ways of the Lord.
  • Pray that families would not succumb to the worldly ideals seen in Hollywood, but would instead stay true to biblical principles of living.

DAILY PRAYER

Lord, we pray for families in this nation. Let them follow the principles outlined in the Word of God and not the lifestyles modeled in Hollywood. Help us to train up our children in your ways, so they will not depart from You when they are older.

IMMIGRATION

"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble."

—Psalm 9:9 (NIV)

If there was ever a nation that understood what it means to be a refuge for the oppressed, it ought to be the U.S. As a nation comprised of immigrants and their descendants, we have been a land of refuge; yet we still struggle with what it means to open our national doors to others. But the Lord is a perfect refuge, a perfect stronghold in times of trouble. When a nation turns to God, He will be a refuge for them. Amid the chaos of current events—whether financial collapse, terrorism or war—how comforting it is to know that God wants to be a stronghold for our nation.

  • Ask the Lord to turn the hearts of America's citizens and leaders to Himself as we wrestle with immigration policies.
  • Pray that our nation will increasingly see that God is our only refuge amid the troubles of this world.

DAILY PRAYER

Father, I am so grateful that You are my refuge and stronghold. I come to You today longing to experience Your presence and to rest in who You are. What I ask for myself, I also ask for my nation. Please provide our leaders a solution for the immigration decisions that must be made. Let them have your wisdom and your compassion.

CHURCH UNITY

"I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment."

—1 Corinthians 1:10 (ESV)

It's been said that combining church denominations is comparable to mixing oil and water; they simply don't mix. God's will, however, is that His people be of one accord. Jesus prayed that we would "be one, just as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You" (John 17:21). First Peter 3:8 says, "Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind." Think of what a mighty weapon a body of people united in Christ would be against the enemy!

  • Pray that denominational barriers are torn down and that believers stand as one in the body of Christ.
  • Pray that petty differences and the spirit of divisiveness—both tools of the enemy—are defeated in the name of Jesus.

DAILY PRAYER

Lord, we know it is Your divine will that the body of Christ stands in one accord. Protect us from the wiles of the enemy and help us to recognize his evil schemes so that we remain vigilant and stand together to fight against him. Let us be in harmony with each other as we walk in the fruit of Your Holy Spirit.
