Prayers for Loving God's Word

There comes a point in every Believer's life where they must make a decision: Do they believe that the Word of God is true...or not?  Crucial to our sons' development as Christian men, this decision must first be modeled by mom and dad. Do we live and act and breathe as if every word we speak, every decision we make is influenced by God's Word?  Perhaps the first thing we should pray for this week is for God to move in our hearts and create in us a new love for His Word.  Then, as we live it out before our boys, we can truly know how important the Word is and pray passionately for God to develop a strong love for it in the hearts of our sons.

Day One: May our sons delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day & night (Psalm 1:2)

Day Two: May our sons remember God upon their bed, & meditate on Him in the watches of the night (Psalm 63:6)

Day Three:  May our sons meditate on God's precepts & fix their eyes on His ways (Psalm 119:15)

Day Four: May our sons think on God's ways they would turn their feet to His testimonies (Psalm 119:59)

Day Five: May our sons, like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk of God's Word (1 Peter 2:2)

Day Six: May our sons meditate on all that God has done & ponder the work of His hands (Psalm 143:5)

Day Seven: May our sons hide God's Word in their heart & not sin against Him (Psalm 119)


May our sons delight in God's decrees & not neglect His word. (Psalm 119:16)

May God open their eyes that they might see wonderful things in His law (Psalm 119:18)

May God cause them to understand the way of His precepts (Psalm 119:27)

May our sons hold fast to God's statutes & not be put to shame (Psalm 119:31)
