5 Powerful Reconciliation Prayers to Heal Relationships

Author Philip Yancy wrote, “Christian faith is…basically about love and being loved, and reconciliation. These things are so important, they’re foundational and they can transform individuals, families.” Not only is reconciliation core to our Christian faith, it is a big deal to God! In fact, God went to great lengths to offer reconciliation to mankind even sacrificing His own Son. As recipients of His grace, He now expects us as believers to become ministers of reconciliation in our world. One of the best ways to do this is through reconciliation prayer.What Is Reconciliation?Before we can take a look at a few reconciliation prayers we must first understand the nature of reconciliation. The word “reconciliation” comes from the Greek root allassowhich carries the idea of change. To be reconciled means there is a change in the relationship. Former enemies become friends. In order for reconciliation to happen someone needs to take the initiative.Sin left our relationship with God fractured. However, God took all the initiative and sent His Son, Jesus to pay the penalty for our sin so that we might be reconciled to God. The way our reconciliation is completed is by us responding to the forgiveness Christ offered. When we receive God’s gracious offer of forgiveness, God forgives and restores us to a right relationship with Him. This is where our journey of reconciliation begins.Photo Credit: ©GettyImages/fizkes

5 Loving Prayers for 2023 College Graduates

It’s the season of graduation and new beginnings. While many are focused on high school graduates, there are also college grads who have put everything into their education. Concluding a commitment to education is no small task, and they’ve accomplished great things by finishing their pursuit of higher learning.How can we best support the college graduate in prayer?

6 Prayers to Protect Your Marriage Against Temptation and Adultery

Our marriages have to be guarded and continually prayed for. Temptation lies everywhere! How quickly our eyes can pull us away from honoring the gift of marriage we have been given. Maybe it's a picture that tempts us online, a comparison that says I should have it better than I do, or lust that draws us towards a person other than our spouse. The struggle to remain faithful to each other in heart, mind, and body is real.

7 Powerful Prayers to Cover Your Children Every Day of the Week

Pray! When all else fails, that's what we do, right? It seems like that is the common "go-to," if you will. I must admit it has been for me. After I had exhausted every other option and gone through every scenario in my head, discussed and devised a "doom's day plan" with my husband, and shared all the "helpful" memes and social media posts with all my friends - then I will finally fall apart and open my heart to God.

7 Best Ways to Pray for Your Mom

We all have a mom! A woman in whose womb God created us and brought us into the world.For you created my inmost being;you knit me togetherin my mother’s womb (Psalms 139:13).Even if she wasn’t the woman who raised and nurtured you, she gave you the gift of life. For those with a mother who devoted her life to making sure you were safe and secure until you could go out on your own, she deserves honor, love, prayers, and devotion. Sometimes it’s easy to take moms for granted, but without the mother who birthed us, we would not have experienced the breath of life.Why Should We Pray for Our Moms?Unfortunately, we’re living in a culture where motherhood is coming under attack. Recently, there was even an attempt in Congress to remove the term mother and replace it with “birthing person.” Fortunately, that ridiculous idea received extreme pushback, but some people still use that innocuous term to negate the biological fact that only a woman can enjoy the privilege of giving birth to a child.Many have enjoyed the benefits of having a praying mother.Dwight L. Moody encouraged mothers, “The impression that a praying mother leaves upon her children is life-long. Perhaps when you are dead and gone your prayer will be answered.” He was saying that a mother might not see the answer to prayers in her lifetime, but God hears the cries and prayers of a mother’s heart, and they may be answered after we’re with Jesus. So don’t stop praying. In my book Praying for Your Prodigal Daughter, I sign it, “Keep praying! 1 Thess. 5:17.”Billy Graham also talked about the blessings of having a Christian mother. “Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.”Not every child has a praying or Christian mother, but every child can pray for his or her mother. As a mother and stepmother, it warms my heart and soul when one of my children tells me they’re praying for me. I feel loved, cherished, and appreciated. “May she who gave you birth be joyful!” Proverbs 23:25Following, are prayers you might consider for the season of life your mother is experiencing at this time. She will feel those prayers even if you’re miles apart.Photo Credit: ©GettyImages/Martinan

10 Prayers for the Graduate

The season of graduation and new beginnings can bring a mixed bag of emotions for many of us. Though its a time of great celebration and fresh starts, the letting go process can bring some pain too. Parenting is often just about that a constant learning to let go; its a journey through the years. And whether theyre taking their next steps towards kindergarten, were watching them head off to college, or straight into their first big job, it can be difficult for us as parents. But theres hope. Our children are His. No matter where they go, or how old they are, they are in His care. They are in His hands. He has great purpose for them in this life and that's the very best place we can let them go. In a dark world, that can be hard sometimes. We often want to keep holding on, tightly. Its a daily process to learn to let go, through all stages of parenting. But as we entrust them straight into the care of our powerful and loving God, we can be assured that He sees, He knows, and is there with them, always. He is able to care for our most precious ones, even far better than we ever could on our own. His hands are big. To carry. To hold. To protect. To cover. To lead. And He loves each one of them more than we could even imagine. Never underestimate the importance of speaking His blessing and truth over the lives of your children, no matter what their ages. Prayer is so powerful, and Gods words are true. He promises in Isaiah 55:11 that His word will never return empty, without accomplishing great things. He reminds us that He hears our prayers and is always at work on our behalf, and on behalf of those we love. So we can send them out covered in prayer, rich in blessing, with great hope and a future in store. Here are 10 prayers for the graduate. Photo courtesy: ©Thinkstock/XiXinXing
