10 Daily Prayers for Your Children

I really want to add praying specifically for my children to my morning reading time.   Here are 10 prayers I came up with I’d like to pray EVERY morning.   My children would love and serve the Lord with their whole hearts from a young age.

They would love and have a hunger for God’s Word. They would learn to practice self-control from an early age. Their desire would be to put…

40 Days of Prayer | Day 40: Active Sanctification

  A couple years ago my husband and I were introduced to the term ‘active sanctification’.  The words were not new to us, but the idea and concept was one we so agreed with biblically and on principle we have adapted the phrase as part of our own Christian-ese.  The idea is one in which you are actively and continually striving for holiness in your everyday life.  Striving for perfection, by the grace and power of the Holy Spirit.  Its about our choices, our thoughts, our actions and our habits. We are continually asking God to reveal to us our…

Church is just a building, I know, its the people who make up the church in our Lord, but I must say, I can walk into my church anytime of the week and I’m overwhelmed with refuge and peace.  In a dark world, there has always been light in my church.  I hope you feel the same about yours. …

Be a Better Mom Monday |40 Days of Prayer | Day 36: Their Choices

Dear Lord, Even from a very young age I can see the choices being made in the minds of my children.  They decide and they contemplate. They are curious and often times unknowing.

Let them always seek to please you with every decision they make.  May they realize from an early age, all choices have consequences, whether good or bad. Please let them be more wise than foolish.
