Fight for Your Family
By Victoria Osteen - Jan 21, 2010
Every month at Lakewood Church, we have a special time to pray for families and dedicate them to the Lord. Prayer makes a difference, and God has given it to us as a privilege and a tool to stand strong in the midst of the battle for our families.

See, the enemy wants to target families. He wants to tear up marriages and drive a wedge between parents and children because he knows that there is power in unity. God designed family to be a source of strength for us. Family is the foundation of everything we are. I'm so glad that greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world! We have the power and authority given by God to stand and fight the good fight of faith for our families!

If your family isn't around, God wants to give you a spiritual family to be that encouragement, strength, and support. I love what it says in Psalm 68 that God places the solitary in families. He doesn't want you to be alone because there truly is safety in numbers. There is blessing in unity and strength in families!

Today, stand strong on behalf of your family. Fight the good fight of faith through prayer. You may have some strained relationships, but I believe God can turn those situations around. He can restore marriages; He can bring children home; He can bring peace and unity where there's been strife and division. God is a big God. Even when you can't see it, He's working behind the scenes on your behalf. You may have been waiting a long time, but don't give up! Keep pressing through until you see that promise come to pass. God is faithful, and you are going to make it! I declare by faith that you will see every one of His promises fulfilled in your family in Jesus' name!

Haiti Update:

Please continue to keep Dr. Paul, the surgical team from Samaritan's Purse, and all the medical workers in your prayers as they perform surgeries in extremely poor conditions.
