Family – Prayer that it is well with your family. Declare that you and your family are happy, healthy, and whole. Declare your family is established well able. Declare you and your family.

The Shunammite Women cover her family by declaring it is well though it was not. You can do the same for you family.
Faith- Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Your faith shall be with you thru the next five months.

Future- Shummaite woman went to the prophet Elijah for her future. The child is the Shunammite's woman legacy. The child carries her family’s name. Your future can be your children, a business, a ministry. What will be the legacy you will leave on the Earth? God ensured the Shaummaite women's legacy was sure because he raised her son from death. God will and can raise anything dead in your life. God had the best plans for the Shaummaite woman and you.
