An everyday prayer in our home...that our sons would do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than themselves. Certainly not a quality that comes naturally, I find that we fight the "mine!" all of our lives. But what do we really deserve other than the wrath of GOd? Everything good we have comes from Him, given because He loves us. We deserve punishment, as do our sons. No, He gives not because we deserve anything good, but simply because He loves us.
This week let's pray for God to give us all, including our sons, hearts that truly love others more than ourselves - servant's hearts.
Day One: May our sons do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than themselves (Philippians 2:3)
Day Two: May our sons do unto others as they would have others do unto them (Luke 6:31)
Day Three: May our sons love one another with brotherly affection, outdoing one another in showing honor (Romans 12:10)
Day Four: May our sons have love in their hearts that is patient and kind, does not envy or boast, is not arrogant or rude, does not insist on its own way and is not irritable or resentful (1 Corinthians 13:4-5)
Day Five: May our sons show sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind (1 Peter 3:8)
Day Six: May our sons live with their wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel (1 Peter 3:7)
Day Seven: May our sons know how to control their own bodies in holiness and honor (1 Thessalonians 4:4)
I need your help. Since I first began praying the Word over my sons a year ago this month, several different opportunities to get other boy moms involved have presented themselves. For several months now I've offered a weekly Twitter chat (#WarriorPrayers), daily encouragement on our Facebook page and Twitter. And, as you know, a few months ago I started this blog to give you weekly topical prayer calendars for your sons.
It's a lot of work!
And I love it! But it would help me a great deal if you could take just a second and tell me how you best like to receive your encouragement to pray for your sons. In the comments simply put:
a. If you like daily Facebook prayers the best (www.facebook.com/WarriorPrayers)
b. If you like daily Twitter prayers the best (#Warrior Prayers)
c. If you like weekly topical prayer calendars the best (www.warriorprayers.com)
d. If you like a weekly Twitter chat the best (#WarriorPrayers)
As a little incentive, I'm throwing in a chance to win a $25 store credit to the Warrior Prayers Art Collection by Michelle Pendergrass! Each person who leaves a comment is entered to win!
