Warrior Prayers: Day 18 (Self-Control)
Today we pray for Self-Control (page 35).
Read page 36-37 for tomorrow.
*The key to overcoming our tendencies toward worshiping something other than Christ is to choose to love Him more than we love our sin. A constant laying down of our desires and picking up of Christ is the only fix.
*How many times have I chosen my own way when I knew the consequences? How many times have I forfeited the sweet, peaceful blessings of obedience in order to stamp my feet, cross my arms, dig in my stubborn three year-old-like heels and have my own way?
Question for Discussion:
*Do you have areas in your life where you lack self-control? Ask God to help you in those areas and in that way He will show you how to teach self-control to your child. (If you are willing to share, please do. You can be as general as possible)
Tomorrow (9/24) we pray against Anger (page 38).
Today is our last Link UP day. If you wrote a blog post about this challenge we would love to read it.
