Today we pray for Faithfulness (page 33).
During our morning "Bible study" time with my almost 3 year old, I pray a daily virtue. One evening we were praying together as a family and Shrade came up and said he wanted to pray for faithfulness. I could only gather that he remembered that as one of the virtues that I've prayed for him. So we did and I still do!
When I did the Beth Moore Bible study "Believing God" I read Romans chapter 4 twenty times. Try it! You will know a little more about faith after doing that.
But really, what I want to talk about … what I want to pray about today … is that our sons would be faithful to God. Doesn't this one prayer bring with it the solution to everything else we could talk about? A man whose first love is Jesus, will be faithful in all of the areas above (marriage, job, etc) . He won't be perfect, but he will possess the ability to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to be faithful. It is something worth praying for.
“Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness … " ~Joshua 24:14
Tomorrow (9/22) we pray for Gentleness (page 34).
