Prayers are powerful! They have the ability to bring about blessing and protection. In this article, we will look at powerful prayers for your sister that can help her be protected and guided by the Lord.
When I was growing up I always dreamed of having a sister. Someone who I could connect and relate with. This sadly, never happened but I was blessed with 3 brothers. But I do know many family members and good friends that have wonderful sisters.
And depending on the season or their walk in Christ they might be in need of prayer. This is when you come in, being an awesome sister or brother! But before we dig into these prayers lets cover some important tips.
Important Tips for Praying for Your Sister
If you have checked my other written prayers you will notice I have this section in the article. This is because I find it SUPER important. So, please don’t skip this part! It’s short section, but it will better your prayer time with the Lord.
- When praying written prayers be specific to your sisters needs. A lot of these prayers are generalized to help relate to many people. For example your sister needs prayer for strength. This could be strength because she is going through a hardship like a divorce or break-up. Or your sister needs strength because she is moving to a new city and will have start a new job.
Whatever the case make sure when you pray to be specific.
- It’s ok to change the prayer and make it personal! I actually recommend it. Make them your own…Remember God wants to hear from your heart. He doesn’t care about fancy or eloquent prayers. He cares about YOU!
