**For full context you may want to read the verses before and after the verses included in this prayer.**

Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to ask You to lead as I pray these Scriptures for my loved ones. I ask You to give them spiritual knowledge, wisdom, discernment, and revelation as found in Ephesians 1:17-18. “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to [name of child] the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”
Lead my loved ones to act on Ephesians 4:22-24. “That you put off, concerning  your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
Encourage each one to allow the Holy Spirit to fill and guide them to do away with instinctive actions. Romans 8:14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
For any that are in a marriage relationship, show them how to live according to Ephesians 5:21. “Submitting to one another in the fear of God.”
Thank you for allowing me to pray these Scriptures back to You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
