Hey sweet friends....
I am going to lift up all our children today and in the days to come. I have had an urgency and sense of "now" to pray for our spouses and our children. Feel free to come back daily for a new focus and pray along with me.
Our families are everything to us. God has given us these people and I don't want to take those relationships lightly and I don't think you do either. Won't you pray with me.....
"Dear Sweet Jesus,
First of all, I humbly come before you and simply say "thank you" for my 3 sons. They are all completely different but yet completely perfect in Your own sweet way. I thank you for entrusting me with this HUGE job of raising them to be followers of Jesus Christ. That can be overwhelming for me sometimes. But, as I take it one day at a time and follow my heart, I can pray some very specific things for them. Thank you for listening Lord. Thank you for already working out these things even as I sit here and type.
Father, I ask that their hearts be filled with a burning desire or passion to truly know You, seek You, and be close to you. Lord, help me to teach of You, show Your activity in their daily life, and help them see and understand how you speak and reveal yourself to them.
Lord, I pray my children's souls would pant for you as the deer pants for streams of water.
Just as the Psalmist said in Ch. 42 vs. 1, I want them to want You and not be afraid of You.
Thank you Lord for giving me the tools, the time, and the heart to be intentional about what we talk about with my children. May You be first and last always!
We love you Lord. Increase our passion. Increase our desire to find joy in everyday life as we follow your ways. No matter their age, all of your children can desire more of You! You are truly awesome! We love you so much.
In Jesus Name....Amen!"
