Praying For Our Children…Every Day


Saturday 8/23/2014

Please make Your presence know to my children so they may know and experience Your joy. Don’t let them depend on our world for happiness for if they do their only joy will come from reaction to circumstances … but You can plaster a smile on their faces that will puzzle even the deepest cynic and cause others to want what they have … YOU!

Nehemiah 8:10, John 14:15

Make my children willing to suffer for Your name, to choose not to sin and stand firm in pleasing You. This is one of the ways they show their love for You and place themselves in the Shelter of the Most High and causes them to dwell in love.

Psalms 91:1

Speak tenderly to my children after You chastise them so they will be more open to receive Your forgiveness and subsequently obey Your voice. Give me a tender spirit also, so my discipline will be an earthly example of the freedom that follows repentance and results in obedience.

Isaiah 40:1-2

One Happy Meal will not satisfy my children for the rest for the day … we are lucky if the effect lasts until we get to the car. And so it is with peace and prosperity! My children cannot obey You once and expect the results to sustain and satisfy them forever … obedience to You is a way of life … not an occasional treat.

Isaiah 48:18

May my children submit to Christ, stop fretting about their hurts and challenges and give them to You!!! May they spend time everyday thanking You and seeking You … so that they experience peace like a mighty river rolling through their obedient lives!

Isaiah 48:18

May my children show and make obvious that they are letters from Christ delivered to the world by me … not written with ink but with the Spirit of the living God … not on tablets of stone but on tablets of the human heart.

2 Corinthians 3:3

Saturday 8/16/2014

Keep my children in front of Your mirror. Set their gaze on You. As they begin to see their reflection through Your eyes they will see the actions they need to take in order to come in line with who You want them to become. Remind them as often as needed to feel no shame for the distance they must travel and let them rejoice because they are lucky enough to be journeying toward You!

2 Corinthians 3:18
