My Dearest God,

  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 Sarah and multiply it.
 
  May the truth of Your Word be firmly established in Sarah's heart so that faith will grow daily and navigate her life. Help Sarah to trust You at all times as she looks to You for truth, guidance and transformation into Yuor likeness. I know that trusting in You is a choice we make. Enable Sarah to make that choice. I pray that Sarah will look to you for everything, knowing that she is never without hope. May Sarah's faith be the "substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). I pray Sarah 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 Sarah will be so strong in faith that her relationship with You supersedes all else in her life -- even my influence as a mother. In other words, may she 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 strong enough to keep her "steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord" (1 Corinthians 15:58).
 
  As Sarah 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 Sarah 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 Sarah 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 counted me faithful" (1 Timothy  1:12). In Jesus' name, I pray for all of these things.

"If you have faith as a mustard see, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you." (Matthew 17:20)
