Father, hold my brothers and sisters today. Hold them in your mercy, in your grace and your strength. Clear their vision, lift their heads and tighten their grip on you. Surround them, saturate and fill them with your love. Intensify their hope, strengthen their faith and overlap everything with your joy.
Open their spirits to you, to your plans and your desires for them. Help them embrace the wondrous journey with you in ways they once thought impossible. Open their hearts and draw out the gifts, the abilities and talents that you have given them. Erase the pain of regret and past failures and in its place plant deep the power of your purposes for them.
In all of this let your name be know and praised...for you are a great God.
In Jesus name....Amen!
