One of the most serious wounds in our society is people who are emotionally wounded or broken from intense abuse they suffered as children from broken homes, from dysfunctional family relationships, or from severe emotional trauma.
I pray that God will touch their hearts and heal them emotionally so they can be healthy in spirit again. I ask for the grace to forgive those who hurt them and to have a heart full of love as Jesus did when he was on earth.
8. Prayer for confidence
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2Timothy 1:7)
Every member of the family including kids needs a daily dose of confidence to feel good about themselves and to grow up with healthy self-esteem. Knowing who they are is an important boost to their self-confidence.
I pray that my family members will have the courage to stand strong in their convictions, know who they are, be confident enough to take risks, and speak out when they see something wrong.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)
Staying safe in a world that is often hostile can be a challenge. It’s tough for kids to stay out of trouble and feel safe when they’re constantly bombarded with messages about violence, drugs, gangs, bullying or other dangers at school or on the streets.
I pray that my family members will be safe from anything like physical, emotional and spiritual harm. I ask for protection for them in their homes, schools, work places and wherever they are at any time of the day or night.
