Day Five: Establishing an Eternal Future

Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God.
- John 3:3
For this reason, since the day we heard about you,
we have not stopped praying for you
and asking God to fill you with the knowledge
of His will through all spiritual wisdom
and understanding.
And we pray this in order that you may live a life
worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way:
bearing fruit in every good work,
growing in the knowledge of God,
being strengthened with all power
according to His glorious might so that you may
have great endurance and patience,
and joyfully giving thanks to the Father,
who has qualified you to share in the inheritance
of the saints in the kingdom of light.
- Colossians 1:9-12
Lord, I bring David and Elizabeth before You and ask that You would help them grow into a deep understanding of who You are. Open their hearts and bring them to a full knowledge of the truth about You. Lord, You have said in Your Word, "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). I pray for that kind of faith in my children. May they call You their Savior, be filled with Your Holy Spirit, acknowledge You in every area of their lives, and choose always to follow You and Your ways.
Help David and Elizabeth to fully believe that Jesus laid down His life for them so that they might have life eternally and abundantly now. Help them to comprehend the fullness of Your forgiveness so that they will not live in guilt and condemnation.
I pray that David and Elizabeth will life a fruitful life, ever increasing in knowledge of You. May they always know Your will, have spiritual understanding, and walk in a manner that is pleasing in Your sight. You have said in You Word that You will pour out Your Spirit on my offspring (Isaiah 44:3). I pray that You would pour out Your Spirit upon David and Elizabeth this day.
Thank You, Lord, that You care about my children's eternal future even more than I do and that it is secure in You. In Jesus' name I pray that they will not doubt or stray from the path You have for them all the days of their lives. Amen.*
This is the will of Him who sent Me,
that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him
may have everlasting life;
and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:40
