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 18 – Pray that God would give your children wisdom and direction in making decisions.
Proverbs 3:5-6; Psalms 37:1-6; James 1:5
Today, As I prepared to pray for my children, I read each of these scriptures in context. As I read James chapter one, I cried and it became my prayer for myself. It has been crazy how God is using this prayer challenge to work in the lives of my children and my husband and I. Things are coming to light, and He is truly doing a work in me.
So, I took bits and pieces out of James 1 and made them today’s prayer for my children.
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.
