Hey friends!

Another day in this crazy life and household that I have the complete joy and privilege of being involved in!!! But, Wednesdays are a busy day for us and I've learned something pretty BIG today that I want to share in the form of a prayer. I need this for my entire family!
I need this prayer DAILY y'all. I mean daily.

Will you pray for our children and families please?

"Dear Lord..
Thank you for the delight and joy of raising these beautiful children you have given me. Lord, I empty myself before You and ask that I be filled with Your Spirit. I need You so I can go about the rest of this day walking with You.

Lord, I am asking today that myself, my husband, and my children all have a spirit that is teachable! Lord, remove any pride or arrogance that makes any of us think...."I am ok....I don't need to hear what she is saying....I didn't do anything wrong."

Lord, I want to learn things sooner than later. I want to hear You convict my heart and turn from something before it blows up into something much bigger than it should have been.

Lord, I want this for everyone in my family. Give us a spirit to hear, to listen, to obey and to know that You want only what is best for us. Father, we WANT a teachable spirit. Make us teachable Lord. Give us a heart to learn sooner than later.

In the mighty Name of the best Teacher of all....Jesus!
Amen!"

Proverbs 19:8 "He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers."

Sounds like God is showing up in your Valentine house. Happy Valentine's Day to you my friend. A hug, a kiss, and a prayer whispered in your ear "Father, would you do II Thes 1: 11, 12 in and through Fran. Fulfill every desire she has for righteousness, every act prompted by her faith. And work a work of faith with power that the name, the beautiful Name of Jesus may be glorified in her and she in You." Praying for you Fran...and I love your beautiful words in this heartfelt post! Love on Valentine's Day and forever, Bev
