The image below is one I found on Keeping It Personal. It's a site I haven't come across before, but I look forward to spending time checking them out more thoroughly. You can download a printable copy, and read the original post here.
If you're anything like me, prayers are mostly inserted in between business. Arrow prayers. Shoot one up quickly when the thought is there. Some days I slow down and make the time to really spend time talking with God, but honestly, it doesn't happen nearly enough.
In an effort to begin a new habit, I'm going to schedule prayer time for the next 31 days, and I'm challenging you to join me. I'll be using the image below to give me a starting point. My prayers often revolve around my children, but rarely this sort of intentional praying. I'm also going to share this with my family and discuss what each of these virtues means. I know they won't understand it all, but they're smart kids and I don't want to under estimate them!
It doesn't matter how old your children are, or even if they're not your children, you can pray for any child you love and care, even one's who haven't been born yet. You can be praying for their future spouse as well. It is NEVER too early to be praying for anyone, even people you haven't met yet.
So will you join me? Will you pray for the children in your life and see how God reveals himself?
