So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1: 1 0

3. Pray that your loved ones will receive the Bible as God's direction for their life. But be doers of the word. and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

7. Pray for your loved ones to have spiritual victory In trials and over worry. discouragement, or doubt

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1 :2-4

8. Pray for your loved ones to have friends who love the Lord.

Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm. Proverbs 13:20

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace. patience, kindness, goodness. faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Galatians 5:22-23

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer. my God, my rock. in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2
