Continuing with our mnemonic, Friday is for Family! Now you’re already praying for your immediate family daily (and maybe even hourly if you have toddlers!). But you have extended relatives that you love. Log them on Friday in your notebook and pray for them.

Is a cousin thinking about getting married? Pray that they get the right kind of spouse!

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Proverbs 31:10

Is an uncle struggling with parenting? Pray for patience!

Fathers, provoke not your children to anger, lest they be discouraged.

Colossians 3:21

Does your niece have marital difficulties? 

Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Ephesians 5:33

Does your brother-in-law need a job? Pray that he can fulfill God’s will!

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

1 Timothy 5:8
