The families we leave at home
Romans 8:26-27–In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Lord, help us to do our best to prepare for our family’s needs while we are away . . . while knowing full well that You alone will meet all their needs. We have no way of knowing what our children and spouses will need after we leave, but You do. We have no idea who might try to influence them for bad, but You do. We cannot be with them to keep them safe, but You are with them always. Please put a hedge of protection around them and around us. We love You, Lord. Thank You for hearing the prayers of our hearts.
