“For great is Your love, higher than the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all the earth” (Psalm 108:4-5). “O Lord God Almighty, who is like You? You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds You” (Psalm 89:8). Jesus Christ, You are the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Thank you that I can trust You as a faithful friend.
Please fill me with Your Spirit so I can continue to be a faithful spouse, parent and friend – a trusted companion who is a worthy confidante. Please forgive me for my lack of faithfulness in ________. My desire is to be found faithful, not only at crucial times, but also in things seemingly insignificant. Above all else, I want to be a faithful servant of Yours who is obedient in following Your commands (1 Corinthians 4:2).
For ________, my child, I ask that he/she would grow in faithfulness to You and others. I pray that ________'s loyalty would be evidenced in his/her willingness to stick with his/her friends in times of trouble and his/her readiness to make sacrifices for others. Please fill ________ with Your Holy Spirit so the fruit of faithfulness is evidenced in his/her relationship with You and with others. When ________ is tempted to be unfaithful, please remind him/her that You guard the course of the just and protect the way of the faithful (Proverbs 2:8). And now, looking to the future, I ask that You would be preparing ________ to become a faithful mate for the person You will help him/her choose as a spouse.
For our family, I pray that we would be loyal to one another and that our friendships would be characterized by sacrificial love. You promise to be faithful to those who are faithful (2 Samuel 22:26). I ask that You would find us faithful in all things. As David prayed for Israel and his son, Solomon, I pray for our family, “ . . . keep this desire in the hearts of Your people forever, and keep [our] hearts loyal to You. And give [us] wholehearted devotion to keep Your commands, requirements and decrees . . .” (1 Chronicles 29:18-19). May the fruit of Your Holy Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control – be evidenced in our family so that others would know we belong to You (Galatians 5:22-23). Amen.
