Here are some of the scriptures we have been praying:

Delight in the Lord and He will give you desires of your heart.   Psalm 37:3-4

As the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.  James 2:26

So if the son sets you free, you will be free indeed.    John 8:36

Our help is in the name of the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.   Psalm. 124:8

Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his place 1 Chron 16:27. (One of my favorites!)
