Lifting up our Siblings in Prayer {Day 2 of 5}

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men.” 1 Timothy 2:1
 “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us: And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.” 1 John 5:14-15

Today, set aside time to pray for each sibling individually. Do not use this time to complain about your siblings’ faults to God but to dedicate your siblings to God. If you cannot think of anything positive to pray for your siblings, pray that they would grow in God and exhibit Godly qualities in their lives (you will find some of these qualities in 2 Timothy 4:12, Galatians 3;22-23 and other similar passages).

Some tips to help you through today’s challenge:
       1. Start your day in prayer, asking God to help you faithfully keep your siblings in prayer throughout the day.
       2. Set aside time to pray for each sibling individually (if you are keeping a journal, write down your prayers for each sibling). As the day continues, lift up your sibling in prayer instead of thinking negatively about them.
       3. When tempted to be irritated or impatient with a sibling, choose instead to pray God’s blessing on their life.
       4. Review 1 Timothy 2:1 and 1 John 5:14-15 at least five times throughout the day to keep focus on why you are doing this particular challenge.
       5. End your day in prayer, thanking God for your siblings and the blessing it is to pray for them.
