As I said in the introduction, this challenge is an opportunity to spend the next thirty days being intentional about praying for a child or children.
I hope you had time to decide and write down the name or names of the child/children you will be praying for the next 30 days. If not take the time and do that now. Also, I would encourage you to use a prayer book/journal and write out your prayer each day. This just really allows to really think and ponder on the words, and gives you something to look back at as God answers these prayers. Reuse the prayers and add new notes as you continue to pray for the children in your life.
No matter how you choose to use this prayer guide, the most important thing is to be intentional. Don’t just make it a habit or chore that you check off your to do list each day. Make time and take time to really pray for the child/children, and ask God to show you ways to bless them.
Each day I will post the topic and scripture, and write out my prayer for you to use as a guide, as you go to the Father in prayer. No matter whom God lays on your heart to pray for that is exactly who you should be praying for.
May Yehovah God bless us as we seek to bless Him and His children.
Day 26 – Pray that your children would have a heart of compassion and understanding for the lost.
Growing up in a Bible living home it can become very easy to judge the lost. I want my children to live above reproach, but to also love those who do not have the privilege to know truth and live free. We can not judge those who are lost, because it is often not their fault that no one has shared Truth with them.
So, my prayer today is that my children see the hurting, sick, lost people of this world and have compassion for them.
Please us me to demonstrate Your love for the lost to mychildren. Help me be kind and compassionate. Help me to keep words of judgement and bitterness to myself. Let me care for the hurting and lost as You do.
Make my children understand the difference between holding ones self to a high standard and having understanding towards those who do not know Your standard.
Bring all Your children into the family, and use our family to accomplish Your work. Bringing all the Glory to YOur Son, our Messiah.
