Pray, Mama, Pray!

Christmas Morning 2010

These prayers are from Denise Glenn who wrote Wisdom for Mothers. I love them because they are based off of scripture, therefore, I feel that they would be in line with God's will.  I try to pray them daily, after my kids are in bed. 

1.  That they will know Christ as Savior early in life. 
(Psalm 63:1, 2Tim. 3:15)

2.  That they would have a hatred for sin.  (Ps. 97:10)

3.  That they would be caught when guilty. (Ps. 119:71)

4.  That they would be protected from the evil one in each area of their lives: Spiritual, emotional, and physical. (John 17:15)

5.  That they have a responsible attitude in all their interpersonal relationships. (Dan.6:3)

 (Prov. 1: 10,11)

8.  That they will be kept from the wrong mate and saved for the right one. (2 Cor. 6:14-17)

11.  That they will be single hearted, willing to be sold out to Jesus Christ.  (Rom. 12:1,2)

"Pray, Mama, Pray!' yells Molly, every time we hear a siren.  Hopefully it is not coming from a policeman behind my car.
