Turning the Tide!
Day 10: Hope for Siblings

See extended Scriptures and prayer points>

PARENT'S PRAYER: 

(If you only have one child, please consider praying the family/friend’s prayer for another family)

Dear Lord,
So much of our time and effort seems to go to ______ because of his/her many deep needs. But we are very mindful that our other children also have many deep needs. Our family’s circumstances can often present them with special and difficult situations as well. They may feel that what they are needing seems to go unacknowledged or unmet. We often feel stretched and unable to do all that needs to be done for each child in our home. Help us to have great wisdom in knowing how to balance our focus and attention among our children to the best of our ability. We thank you, Lord, that we are not alone in ministering to our children, and that you care very deeply for each one. When we are unable to meet all of their needs, we pray that you would move deeply within them to bring comfort and peace to their hearts. Even in their youth we ask that you would give them great wisdom and ability to deal with their challenges in ways that will be productive. We ask that you would also give them an extra measure of hope for their futures and faith in you to provide all they need.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen

FAMILY/FRIEND'S PRAYER: 

Dear Lord,
So much of the ______’s family time and effort seems to go to [child’s name] because of his/her many deep needs. But they are very mindful that their other children also have many deep needs. Their family’s circumstances can often present the siblings with special and difficult situations as well. They may feel that what they need goes unacknowledged or unmet. The parents often feel stretched and unable to do all that needs to be done for each child in their home. Help them to have great wisdom in knowing how to balance their focus and attention among their children to the best of their ability. We thank you, Lord, that they are not alone in ministering to their children, and that you care very deeply for each one. When they are unable to meet all of their kids’ needs, I pray that you would move deeply within the children to bring comfort and peace to their hearts. Even in their youth I ask that you would give them great wisdom and ability to deal with their challenges in ways that will be productive. I ask that you would also give them an extra measure of hope for their futures and faith in you to provide all they need.
In Jesus’ Name,
Amen
