Pray these out loud daily.  They are food to heal your heart and to see others healed and restored.

Pray these out loud daily.  They are food to heal your heart and to see others healed and restored.  If you are praying for a spouse, child or other loved one to return to the Lord, or even for yourself, these are some good scriptures to personalize and pray and confess out loud on a regular basis.  Just fill in your or their name:


Based on Ephesians 1:18-19

I pray that the eyes of ____________’s understanding be enlightened; that he/she may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.

I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant ____________, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in his/her heart through faith; that he/she, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that he/she may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Based on Romans 12:2

Someone might say that some of these scriptures are being used out of context. That doesn’t matter for our purposes. This isn’t a theology lesson. These are your own heartfelt prayers for a person you love, using wording from scripture. These prayers and confessions build your faith in the truth of God’s grace, love, goodness, faithfulness and promises, putting you in a position to receive the answers for your loved one.

God won’t manipulate them or force them against their free will. But He has many ways to reach them – divine appointments, dreams, ministering angels, etc. Your persistent prayer doesn’t change God’s mind to do what He already wants to do.  Rather, they invite Him into the situation and encourage you to have confidence for the answers.
