A few months ago, I took a challenge to pray for my four sons. I saw something on facebook about it and it intrigued me. The book written by Beth McGlothlin http://www.brookemcglothlin.com/warriorprayers
inspired me greatly and brought me straight to my knees with prayers for each of our sons.
Every few months, the challenge is pitched again. I posted on a few sites that I would blog about it and lead it for a group to follow.
I started wondering if this week was supposed to be a week for me not to blog,
but then I remembered the challenge that I had agreed to do.
A few minutes ago, I pulled out my book. What a fitting way to embrace the new school year.
The excitement fueled my heart.
The enemy doesn’t want for me to pray these prayers over my sons and because of that, he has tried different things to discourage me from doing so.
That empowers me!!!!
You see, this book is FILLED with scripture to pray for my sons.
It starts by praying for their hearts.
May__________first clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean (Matthew
Give__________a new heart, and a new spirit put within him. Remove the heart of stone from his flesh
and give him a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 36:26).
May__________honor God with his heart, and not just his lips (Isaiah 29:13).
May__________out of the good treasure of his heart produce good, for out of the abundance of his heart
his mouth speaks (Luke 6:45).
May__________’s heart cry be, “not my will, but Yours, be done.” (Luke 22:42).
May__________draw near to God, and He will draw near to him. May he cleanse his hands and purify his
heart (James 4:8).
Create in__________a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within him (Psalm 51:10).
May__________be like the wise man, whose heart inclines him to the right (Ecclesiastes 10:2).
May__________not take idols into his heart, and set the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face
When he hears the Word of the Lord, may__________be cut to the heart (Acts 2:37).
