Day Four: Feeling Loved and Accepted

I have chosen you and not cast you away.
- Isaiah 41:9
I have loved you with an everlasting love.
- Jeremiah 31:3

Lord, I pray for David and Elizabeth to feel loved and accepted. Penetrate their hearts with Your love right now and help them to fully understand how far-reaching and complete it is. Your Word says You loved us so much that You sent Your Son to die for us (John 3:16). Deliver my children from any lies of the enemy that may have been planted in their minds to cause them to doubt that. Jesus said, "As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love" (John 15:9-10). Lord, help David and Elizabeth to abide in Your love. May they say as David in the Bible did, "Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, for in You do I trust" (Psalm 143:8). Manifest Your love to these children in a real way today and help them to receive it.

I pray also that You would help me to love my children unconditionally the way You do, and enable me to show it in a manner they can perceive. Reveal to me how I can demonstrate and model Your love to them so that it will be clearly understood.

I pray that all my family members will accept them, and may they find favor with other people as well. With each day that they grow in the confidence of being loved and accepted, release in them the capacity to easily communicate love to others. Enable them to reach out in love in a way that is appropriate. As they come to fully understand the depth of Your love for each of them and receive it into their soul, make them a vessel through which Your love flows to others. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

The love of God has been poured out in our hearts
by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
- Romans 5:5
In this the love of God was manifested toward us,
that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world,
that we might live through Him.
In this is love, not that we loved God,
but that He loved us and sent His Son
to be the propitiation (sacrifice) for our sins.
Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also ought to love one another.
- I John 4:9-11
