7 Prayers a day....

One of my friends from college read my post from yesterday and shared with me this awesome idea she got from a Bible study a few years I thought I would copy and paste that on my blog too! I don't know about you and your family, but we need all the prayer we can get! Satan is ready and trying to we better have our armor on and actively combatting him and his evil schemes! I've found in my life that praying scripture and dwelling on God's Word is the #1 way to live in the Spirit!

For these prayers, we can insert our child/children's names in the blank, cut them into strips and post them around the house. =)

1. When she wakes up: "Let the morning bring ____ word of your unfailing love, for she has put her trust in You. Show ___ the way she should go for to you she lifts up her soul." (Adapted from Psalm 43:8)

2. When she is getting dressed: "Therefore, as God's chosen child, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Lord help her bear with others and forgive whatever grievances she has against others. Help her forgive as the Lord forgave her. And over all these virtues, help her put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." (Adapted from Colossians 3:12-14)

3. While she is eating: "Teach ____ the secret of being content in any and every situation whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Teach her that she can do everything through him who gives her strength." (Adapted from Philippians 4:12-13)

4. When she goes out of the house: "_______, do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- His good, pleasing, and perfect will." (Adapted from Romans 12:2)

5. While she is taking a bath: "Lord give _______ clean hands and a pure heart, and let her not lift her soul to an idol or swear by what is false. Let her receive blessings from the Lord and vindication from God her Savior. Let her be a part of the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God." (Adapted from Psalm 24:4-6)

6. When she is going to bed: "The Lord Your God is with you; he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing." (Adapted from Zephaniah 3:17)

7. While she is sleeping: "I pray that ______ will do everything without complaining or arguing, so that she may become blameless and pure, a child of God, without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which she shines like a star in the universe as she holds out the word of life-in Christ that she did not run or labor for nothing." (Adapted from Philippians 2:14-16)
