MAN OF THE DAY: JOSEPH
Joseph Trusted that God Was Always With Him
PRAYER FOCUS: FAVOUR OF THE LORD
Joseph lived to be 110 years old (Genesis 50:26). His great grandfather Abraham’s legacy never would have continued—let alone continued for 4,000 years—without Joseph’s unswerving trust that the Lord God always was with him.
We first see this when Joseph is sold into slavery. We see this again when Joseph is thrown in prison. We see this a third time when Joseph is promoted to Egypt’s supreme leader under Pharaoh’s authority. Finally, we see this when Joseph has the opportunity to slaughter his brothers, but instead forgives them.
Listen to Joseph’s robust statement of faith: “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives” (Genesis 50:20). What remarkable trust in God’s sovereignty and providence! No wonder he’s considered one of the greatest biblical heroes.
Prayer for Son’s Character
Father in Heaven,
While I strive to be a great parent for my son, I recognize that good intentions won’t always result in good character for my child.
So while I want to do my part, I also wish to pray for him. I pray for my son to become a godly man, someone whose faith is apparent in word and deed.
I pray that you would shape my son into a leader, someone with the ability to encourage and edify, discipline and disciple. May he develop such a character that brings you glory all his days.
DAILY PRAYER OF BLESSING.
My son……………………….. I give to you the blessing of my prayers.
I give to you the blessing of my praise.
I give to you the blessing of my passage.
I give to you the blessing of my purity.
I give to you the blessing of my name.
My son, Because YOU are born of God, YOU shall overcome the world and every battle in it, in Jesus name.
By the blood of Jesus, I blot out every evil family record that may be speaking against you.
Like Joseph, may you receive the anointing to terminate generational battles.
Like Jephtha, may you receive the grace to rewrite our family history positively.
Like David, may you be used to kill the Goliath that we your parents and our seniors could not kill.
Father, empower my son to defeat the forces that defeated our parents and grandparents.
