Do not allow my children to self destruct. Show them that the laws of nature apply to them, that their bodies are not invincible, that only their spirits abiding in You can withstand the pressures and focus of the natural world. They will not tempt You by risky behavior that will destroy their physical and mental well being.
Lk 4:12

Teach my children to feel good, invincible, happy, and free. Show them that the short lived relief from pain that comes from sin will NEVER compare to the eternal power of the Holy Spirit available to them every second of every day. Reveal to me the areas of my life that I have become dependent on anything or anyone other than You. I will worship and serve only You, the Lord my God.
Lk 4:8


Sunday 3/21/2021

Celebrate with me as my children skid into bed each night… exhausted, scrapped up, used up and out of gas… fill them up so they can work for You tomorrow as triumphantly as they did today! I will rejoice as my children live fully until the day You call them home.

My children will acknowledge the personal corruptions present in their hearts and give those to You, but they will not use them as a crutch to justify their shortcomings. They will present their pure unblemished hearts before You by covering themselves with the blood of Jesus… and they will live free.
Lev 2:12


Sunday 3/14/2021

May my children witness my joy and know the source by the way I live. I pray they find their way to my well and grow dependent on Your Living Water! The world entices with flashy and instant gratification, show my children there is a better way. Use me!
Jn 10:10, Jn 7:37-38

Heb 12:5-6


Friday 3/12/2021

Show my children that the true church isn’t a building but Christ’s body. Help them see that they are a vital part of that body and lead them to take their place. Open their hearts to receive Christ so they may receive the benefits of His presence.
Eph 1:22-23


Thursday 3/11/2021

Keep my children close; don’t let them drift away from the assurance they received when they heard the Good News. Use me to teach them. When they experience the fruits of my love for Your people, let them crave opportunities to show their love and place people in their paths to receive it.
Col 1:23


Wednesday 3/10/2021

Thank you for purchasing my children’s freedom with the life of Your own Son. You understand our pain because You have already faced our deepest fear and greatest loss- the loss of a child. Let us run to You for comfort when we feel overburdened by our pain.
Col 1:14


Tuesday 3/09/2021

When my children feel trapped and alone along the path You set before them, tell them to fear not and stand firm, confident, and undismayed. You promised to fight for them so they will not lose their peace as they rest in the comfort of Your embrace… like a small child in his father’s arms.
Ex 14:13-14

I trust Christ to save me. Use my life to teach my children that God’s way of making us right with Himself depends on faith, not their own goodness. Let them experience the mighty power that raised Christ from the dead.

Saturday 3/06/2021

Teach my children the secret to releasing Your power through their prayer. Give them divine understanding of Your will so they may be confident You are listening whenever they ask anything in line with that will. You have taught us that when our requests line up with Your will, we can be sure You will give us what we ask for.
1Jn 5:14-15


Friday 3/5/2021

Sometimes when my children are experiencing a season of loss… they forget the good stuff. Their own loss hardens them to the plight of others as well as their own blessings. Their happiness will never come from getting what they want, but only through gratitude for what they already have. Please remind them today to appreciate all that they have and focus less on what they have lost.
Ruth 1:21


Thursday 3/04/2021

Equip my children with all they need for doing Your will. Produce in them, through the power of Jesus Christ all that is pleasing to You.

As my children walk in Your will and obey Your commands, pour out Your spirit upon them and make Your words known to them. Thank You for such a life giving promise.
Pr 1:23
