I wanted to share a post that I'm borrowing from Linda over at Prairie Flower Farm. She is one of the most genuine people I've ever come across. She is a real sweetheart and loves the Lord with all her heart. I just love going over to her blog and reading about their days on the farm and all the goodness they receive from our Lord!
A book called Prayers from a Mother’s Heart, by Ruth Bell Graham. This was written by Shirley M. Dobson. Dr. James Dobson’s wife.
Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You for the privilege of coming before You humbly and interceding on behalf of my children and grandchildren.
Keep their hearts tender and sensitive to Your voice. Give them a love for Your Word and willing hearts to obey it. Help them to desire to walk before You in righteousness all the days of their lives. May they grow in the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord. Give them a heart of compassion and concern for the lost and the wounded. Lead them to a place of service in
Your kingdom’s work.
Lord, send a guardian angel to watch over their going out and their coming in, and lead them not into temptation, but deliver them from the evil one.
Send enough rain to keep them depended on You, but enough sun to give them hope and encouragement. And, Lord when they’re standing at the crossroads trying to decide which path to take, put a person of faith there to point them in the right direction.
Thank You for Your blessings, Your provision, and Your great love for my family. I ask this prayer in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
To pray for our children daily is not only our main responsibility; it is so very rewarding and such a privilege. What a blessing! Thanks for a beautiful prayer Linda (and Ruth)!
I'm grateful that God allows us to come before Him and intercede on the behalf of our loved ones. Once I learned how to pray for my husband and my children... it seems that "life" just fell into place and that stress that I used to harbor melted away. God is so faithful. If you haven't already trusted in Him... give Him a try. I would love to share Him with you.
