I pray that You would pour out Your Spirit upon Emily this day and anoint Emily for all that You've called her
to be and do.
Lord, You have said, "Let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called" (1 Corinthians 7:24).
May it be for this child according to Your Word, that she may embrace what You have called her to be and do.
May the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness
and self-control grow in her daily (Galatians 5:22). May Emily find her identity in You, view herself as Your instrument and
know that she is complete in You.
Give Emily a vision for her life when setting goals for the future and a sense of purpose about what You've called
her to do. Help Emily to see herself as You do -- from her future and not from her past. May Emily be convinced that Your
thoughts toward her are thoughts of peace, to give her a future and a hope ) Jeremiah 29:11).
Teach Emily to look to You as her hope for the future, Lord. May Emily understand it is You "who has saved us
and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given
to us in Christ Jesus before time began" (2 Timothy 1:9). May her commitment to being who You created her to be enable her
to grow daily in confidence and Holy Spirit boldness.
