We get prayer requests turned in during our seminars. I usually type them up in one file and email it to the local pastor we are working with.
This last week we had a few prayer requests turned in about children:
- Children in trouble.
- Children whose parents are hooked on meth.
- Children who won’t let their parents see the grand kids.
- Children who left the church.
Which has convicted me once more.
I need to be really praying for these two children of mine.
Each day it seems that I am praying quickly and reading my devotional quickly because I like all of you have a million things to do. (Hey, I even skips days altogether!)
But being a parent is the most important thing of all. And for some reason I have to keep reminding myself of the seriousness of this calling.
When will I get it?
So here are my specific prayer requests that I want to pray for daily:
- My devotional life
- My example
- Guidance on discipline
- My Kids safety and protection
My daughter is getting this huge attitude. She raises her voice at me and is disrespectful. It angers me. It hurts me. I mean, she is only 5! What will life be like at 15?
I have been reading some great blog posts this week about motherhood and parenting and God. I have been uplifted.
When I crawled into bed with my sleeping Princess this morning I held her. I am in awe at how big she is and how fast time has gone by. In a blink she really will be gone. Grown. I want to raise her in a godly home. I want her to love God and people and to be a good person.
She woke up in my arms and smiled.
Knowing she is loved beyond words.
I am the best mother for her and she is the best daughter for me.
I might not be the perfect mother but I am a good mother.
Only by God’s grace!
