A 40-Day Prayer Initiative Praying God's Word over Lexington.


4/21 – Marriage and the Family

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)

- Thank God for his design of marriage. Consider the benefits it has to the health and safety of the family.

- Pray for a return to Godly marriages in Lexington & our nation.

4/23 – Single Parent Families

But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. I will not fear though tens of thousands assail me on every side.” (Psalm 3:3-6)

- Pray for parents going through divorce and their response in the midst of that emotional pain toward their children.

- Intercede for hope to become evident in seemingly overwhelming circumstances.

- Cry out to God for ways LexChristian Church can be used to bring hope and healing to single parent families. Give LexChristian a heart that wants to be used in this way.

4/25 – Healthy Families

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (which is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may have a long life on the earth.” (Ephesians 6:1-3)

- Convict parents to fulfill their calling to love, lead, discipline and care for their children.

- Pray for husbands & wives to be committed to each other first, then their children.

- Ask God to use you to be a beacon of hope for marriages & families in your sphere of influence. For wisdom in what to say. For scripture to share.

4/22 – Hearts of Fathers & Children

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome Day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers. Otherwise, I will come and strike the land with a curse.” (Malachi 4:5-6)

- Pray for fathers to turn their hearts back to their children. Consider your heart toward your children and talk to God.

- Pray for forgiveness, restoration and healing throughout Lexington.

- Ask God to raise up spiritual moms and dads for children in need. (fostering, adopting, etc.)

4/24 – Christ-Centered Marriages

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, His body, of which He is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her. (Ephesians 5:21-25)

- Pray for couples to be faithful in their marriages and bring glory to God.

- Enable husbands to lead and love their wives as Christ leads and loves the church.

- Pray for wives to be willing to submit & trust God as they are a helpmate to their husbands.

- Ask for divine wisdom for those struggling in their marriage. For courage to get help and wisdom on where to find it.

4/26 – Troubled Families

But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak.” (Isaiah 40:31)

- Pray for healing of troubled families and a leading of them back to God.

- Security for parents and children in the midst of frightening situations and a chaotic world.

- Intercede for prodigals (children, family members, friends, etc.)

• Open the eyes of their heart to the things of God.
• Help them to see the light of the TRUTH.
• As parents or concerned believers, acknowledge that these

prodigals belong to God (who is the best parent) & you can rest in the truth that God knows and is doing what only He can do.

4/27 – Celebrate Who God is Through Prayer


God is our merciful FATHER and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. (2 Corinthians 1:3b-4)

- Think about God as your merciful Father. Revisit a tangible time when His mercy was evident and thank Him.

- As a Heavenly Father, how has God provided comfort to you in some of the deep places you’ve been? How have you extended comfort to those in your sphere of influence within the past year?

- Celebrate through a prayer of praise the Father’s comfort in your life and those in your family & influence.
