The Power of the Three Stranded Prayer Family,
The “restoration of a relationship” prayer is requested the most on my blog and heartbreakingly last week the request came in more than I could count. So, today I want to send out this prayer from my “The Power of the Three Stranded Prayer” e-book to the many tonight whose hearts are broken from a strained relationship. Remember: Forgiving and asking for forgiveness is VITAL to your spiritual growth and relationship with God. Not only does God say to forgive so that He may forgive you. (Matthew 6:15) But, the scriptures are CLEAR that in the end-times the love of MANY will grow cold. (Matthew 24:12) This is an attack from the enemy and you must battle it with PRAYER and LOVE!
Let’s PRAY and RECONCILE:
Relationships between fallen people can be hard; even harder is when those relationships are with our very own family members, chosen friends, or spouses. Human love is imperfect. Still, You created us for togetherness and to feel we are cared for and belong.
Restore back to Your beloved a strained relationship they hold very dear in their heart. (Joel 2:25) Bring wisdom, forgiveness, and understanding into each heart involved today. (James 1:5, Ephesians 4:32, Psalm 119:130) Pour Your love into all wounded hearts supernaturally. (Romans 5:5) The pain from this kind of rejection feels exactly like a physical pain. It hurts Father! If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were rising against me, I could hide. But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend. (Psalm 55:12-13 NIV)
Jesus knows. He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. (Isaiah 53:3 ESV)
He understands. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:15 ESV)
Show how You restore all things brand new and that when YOU author a restoration, things will soon be better than they have ever been. Remind Your child that You are the one who can change the heart of kings. The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will. (Proverbs 21:1 ESV) How? Your love. Your love is louder than any pain, regret, or seemingly impossible situation. Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you. (Jeremiah 32:17 ESV)
Father, Life on earth can be heart-breaking during certain times. Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God. (Psalm 43:5 ESV) Thank You for the promise of changing seasons of friendships and relationships. (Psalm 37:5, Ecclesiastes 3:1) Thank You for the beauty of being part of the Body of Christ. We were never meant to be alone. Thank you for those who hold up our arms as we journey through the heart-breaking times of a beautiful life. (Exodus 17:12)
Father, may the two seeking reconciliation be overwhelmed with Your love that can erase a wrong, give a second chance, and change a stony heart. (Ezekiel 36:26) May the healing power of forgiveness and true agape love overcome Your child’s weary and torn heart as they wait on Your wisdom and timing to reconcile. (Luke 7:47) The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent. (Exodus 14:14)
Fight for this relationship!
May it be so!
In the mighty Name of Jesus we pray,
Amen and amen.
P.S Make that call!
