David killed Goliath with a slingshot and a stone. Teach my children that they don’t need an army to defeat their giants… they just need praise. As they learn to praise You in the trenches my children will learn that You live in that kind of atmosphere and a channel is created through which You enter and go to work on their problems.
Ps 34:1, 22:3

pray my children view their circumstances with You as the focal point and see that their problems are a platform to display Your power to act on their behalf… may they understand this, stand firm in their faith, and NOT let the enemy get the best of them!

By faith, my children will walk under the protection of their Lord. They will serve You and have no fear of being tormented or injured by the creatures of the pit.

Rev 14:4-5


Sunday 2/21/2021

Tuesday 2/16/2021

Thank You for giving my children tender hearts. Yes, they feel pain as their hearts break for what breaks Yours, and they feel the piercing arrows of Your correction. May they never harden so that this divine connection of the heart they share with You remains strong. Their faith is defined as they learn to walk with You… when they get busy going about life… it is these tugs on their hearts that remind them they are living for You.
Joel 2:12-14, Ez 36:26


Monday 2/15/2021

Lord, please reveal to my children the areas of their lives that displease You. Give them a wholesome dread of displeasing You so they will choose obedience. In doing so, they will release the power of Your blessings over their lives.
Ps 25:11-14


Sunday 2/14/2021

Use me to fill up anything that may still be missing in my children’s faith. Make their love grow and overflow for each other and to everyone else so that Christ will make their hearts strong, blameless, and holy when they stand before You on judgment day.

they are nursing. Help them hold on to what is good and keep them away from every kind of evil.

Show my children that it is the condition of their heart revealed to You through their acts of obedience that define their worship as true or simply formalistic. Let them draw from the story of Cain and Abel the difference between a heart that seeks to please God and one that just jumps through the hoops.
Ge 4:3-5

My children have talent and God requires them to use it. They will not spend precious time strengthening the talents they want rather than the ones they already have.
1 Co 12:11


Monday 2/08/2021

Give my children a hunger for Your word. Place them under the care of teachers and spiritual leaders who are strong Christians so they may further grow in truth. Expose false teachers sent by the enemy to shift their focus and energy to unworthy things. Keep them on guard so they don’t find themselves valuing that which is not God.
2 Jn 1:7-11


Sunday 2/07/2021

We offer You our hearts, dedicated and fully immersed in a lifestyle of continual worship. Let my children release their gifts, talents, and abilities to You so they may hear what kind of sacrifice You want from them. With a pure heart they will serve You first so the purpose of their lives will be fulfilled.
Ge 4:3-5


Saturday 2/06/2021

Lord, let me hear the sweet comfort of Your voice. Those moments when my mind becomes sharp, clear, focused and completely consumed by my connection to You. My children will benefit as I carry them along my path, teaching them to walk with You also, and then rejoicing as they recognize Your voice and follow You.
1Sa 3:9, Pr 22:6, Dt 11:19, Dt 4:9
