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 29 – Pray for laughter and joy to fill their days.
Nehemiah 8:10; Proverbs 17:22; Psalms 126:2
I am not a very silly person, and often I find silliness annoying. But, I do love to hear my children playing happily and laughing innocently. So, today, that is my prayer.
I know I can be a very serious person, but help me teach my children the joy of laughter. I want them to smile and have fun. I want them to know the difference between silliness, foolish talk, and the laughter that comes from a place of joy and pleasure in Your goodness.
I want my children to look to You in difficult days, and find joy and comfort. I also want them to just enjoy the blessing and goodness that flow from You in pure appreciation and joy.
Teach us as a family to have fun and laugh at life appropriately.
I hope this blog series is a blessing to you and the children in your life. If you would like to join our prayer group on Facebook here is the link.
