You have said in Your Word that You have "dealt to each one a measure of faith" (Romans 12:3). I pray that You
would take the faith You have planted in Emily and multiply it.
May the truth of Your Word be firmly established in Emily's heart so that faith will grow daily and navigate Emily's
life. Help Emily to trust You at all times as she looks to You for truth, guidance and transformation into Your likeness.
I know that trusting in You is a choice we make. Enable Emily to make that choice.
I pray that Emily will look to You for everything, knowing that she is never without hope. May Emily's faith be
the "substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not sene" (Hebrews 11:1). I pray Emily will have faith strong enough
to lift her above her circumstances and limitations and instill in her the confidence of knowing that everything will work
together for good (Romans 8:28).
I pray that Emily will be so strong in faith that her relationship with You supersedes all else in her life --
even her relationship with me as her mother. In other words, may Emily have a relationship with You, Lord, that is truly her
own --not an extension of mine or anyone else's. I want the comfort of knowing that when I'm no longer on this earth, her
faith will be strong enough to keep her "steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord" (1 Corinthians 15:58).
As Emily walks in faith, may she have Your heart of love that overflows to others, a heart that is willing to
give of self and possessions according to Your leading. May Emily see that giving out of love is actually giving back to You
in faith and that she will never lose anything by doing so. I pray that Emily will take the "shield of faith" (Ephesians 6:16)
and thereby be able to stand strong in faith and say, "I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He coutned
me faithful" (1 Timothy 1:12). In Jesus' name, I pray all of these things.
