Third day into our 21 day dedication to praying for our sons…
A copy of today’s reading… “Warrior Prayers” by Brooke McGlothlin
What are we aiming for?
“And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to OBEY my rules. “ Ezekiel 36:26-27
I’m praying that you’ll grasp this concept so clearly that it will bring you strength and peace in the midst of your wildest storms. You cannot change the hearts of your boys. You CAN’T. Period. It’s not your job. It’s so important that you get this, friends, because you’re going to want to be able to change their hearts more than anything in the world. Days, months, maybe even years of endless toil and labor for the sake of your sons will go by with no apparent fruit. Night after night you will cry out to the Lord for change. Day after day you will parent intentionally seeking the heart of your son. But UNTIL the King of kings and Lord of lords turns his heart of stone to a heart of flesh, your son’s actions will be motivated by what is pleasing to himself rather than by what is pleasing to the Lord.
