But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. (Psalm 3:3)
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. (Psalm 55:22)
Dear God — I pray that Ben will always cast his cares on You, knowing that you will sustain him, for you never let the righteous be shaken. In Jesus name, I pray this prayer.
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. (James 4:8-10)
Dear Father in Heaven — I pray that Ben will always rest in the knowledge that you will come near to him as he stays near to you. I pray that his hands and heart will stay pure in your sight. I pray that he will fall to his knees often in grief for his sin and repent, that he will be always be humble before you, knowing that you will lift him back up.
See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. (Hebrews 3:12-14)
Father God — I pray that Ben will never have a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from you, the living God. I pray that he will encourage others and be encouraged by others daily so that he will not be hardened by deceitfulness. I pray that he will always keep the company of believers who will hold him accountable, sharing in Christ, holding on to his conviction firmly to the end of his life.
