Yesterday I sat down at the kitchen table to pray with my kids and take communion together. Hubby had to go to work otherwise he would have joined us.
Encouraging my family to share their requests, my youngest daughter offered up some prayers for her friends. She was very concerned about some of the choices that they were making. Her voice quaked and I felt her sadness.
I heard it crystal clear in my Spirit. It opened up a direction for me to go into in prayer, and minister to my children accordingly.
When the image of God radiates through us (see Genesis 1:27), our desire is to serve and sanctify all those in need whom we love and genuinely care about.
