We can't look at our loved ones vices, issues, faults and pray controlling prayers.
If we are not careful, our prayers of what WE WANT can even operate as witchcraft--->
Example: "I command that dead-beat boyfriend to leave in the name of Jesus."We can, however, speak prophetically using the Word of truth over people, really speaking life that you might live...
"The hand of the Lord was upon me, and he brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; it was full of bones. And he led me around among them, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley, and behold, they were very dry. And he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, you know.” Then he said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live." Ezekiel 37:1-10The best place to start, however is in handing them over to Him. They aren't YOUR yoke, right? So let's commit to first give them to Him:
"Lord, I am not their Savior, I didn't die on a cross for them…You did….and so now i give them over to your care… I trust You and know You love them even more than I." Amen!
